"I am sorry to pan a movie staring Jim Carrey and containing soooo
many good elements but the overall effect was crummy. "
Score = "70" "This movie was not like the story at all but
it was funny. What i didnt like was that the grinch was more funny than
mean. I was hoping for both but it was a ""Jim Carrey""
film. the movie is still true to the book which i like and the way the
grinch's young story was told. the make-up was well-done, im not saying i
didnt like, i liked it."

"A rich, dark, Tim Burtonesque tapestry using people (of all sizes)
the special effects are so good you take it for granted. The grinch HAS to
be bad - thats why his redemption is so good. He lives on the outcasts of
others (I get all your toys in the end) and demands nothing until teased
(yet again) by the priviliged few. This is not a cartoon. The kids think
so, but for adults it has as many levels as you look for. The Grinch is in
denial and it takes a little girl to point it out. Nope- i couldnt
recognise Jim Carrey either - he is THAT good! Excellent."

"Though not exactly the same ol children's story we all know and love
until the point when its on every channel the night before x-mas, this
movie, only due to Ron Howard and Jim Carrey's genius was a great success
in bringing a Dr. Seuss book turned cartoon into an incredibly delightful
array of visual and emotional effects. Jim Carrey has one of his best
performances yet just short of Truman Show with his wise and witty forms
of drama and emotion, though he does use his crazy antics and human
punching bag tricks they are not the reason for such a renowned
performance, its his emotions through the costume, both body and facial
that prove his extreme talent as an actor. Ron Howard brings Whoville to
life beautifully along with the Whos, complete with the small noses and
outrageous hair cuts. The story of the Grinch is told from the narrator's
point of view who is portrayed by one of my favorites Anthony Hopkins who
does a stunning part with his word play and poetry reading. All in all a
great movie to see this holiday that should not be missed by any true
seuss fan." "
