How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) : Inside a snowflake exists the magical land of Whoville. In Whoville, live the Whos, an almost mutated sort of Munchkin-like people. All the Whos love Christmas, yet just outside of their beloved Whoville lives the Grinch. The Grinch is a nasty creature that hates Christmas, and plots to steal it away from the Whos, whom he equally abhors. Yet a small child, Cindy Lou Who, decides to try befriending the Grinch.

    Really good watch, will eventually watch again, and can recommend, but less so for younger audiences. I never remembered all the weird adult humor in this, it is usually just the charming grinchiness of Jim Carey's overacting that sticks with me, and maybe the Christmas spirit of Mary Lou Who. The movie manages to ride this wonderfully line between keeping the spirit of the book (even rhyming at times) and being new and refreshing, but it does do that by playing to the adults that would have read the book as a child rather than endearing a new generation of children, but I think they intended to try to do both. Jim Carey embodies the Grinch like no one else possibly could (I think Mike Myers proved that in "The Cat in the Hat"), and that is the majority of this so if you don't enjoy him, then you won't enjoy this movie. I do think they added some refreshing character interactions, though some of the execution is much better than others. While it is far from a perfect movie, my biggest gripe is their stupid noses: it seriously bothers me the entire movie. It bothers me more than them dressing the Grinch, which points out that he is naked a LOT with his "co lead" being a young girl: you can see it just distracts from the spirit of the movie. I don't think that everyone is going to love this movie, but it's hard to imagine that people will hate it.

    I'm not gonna lie, this version of the Grinch scared the crap out of me when I was a kid! But as I got older I started to get use to it. The trick was to just listen to the whole thing without looking at it and gradually (each year take a peak).
