Storyline Heading
A recluse whose heart is two sizes too small, the Grinch resides in his cave high atop Mt. Crumpit with his dog Max, and plenty of lettuce juice, extra virgin castor oil and sour milk for sustenance. Annoyed by the out-of-control Christmas festivities in Whoville, the Grinch conspires to deprive the Who's of their favorite holiday, but comes to learn that the spirit of Christmas goes much deeper than tinsel and toys.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Fantasy - Kids--mainly those unfamiliar with the Dr. Seuss book--are the ones who will love this fantasy/comedy. However, adults with a fond memory of the book will find the film lacking. Jim Carrey fans of all ages should be more forgiving and be satisfied by his usual antic schtick.

Critic's Review Heading
Average
Ironically, whenever an author's name appears in the title of an adaptation of a literary work, chances are that the film strays quite far from the source material. Witness, for instance, the opulent, operatic, and decidedly unscary Bram Stoker's Dracula; or the modern-day-set, Bard-in-need-of-Ritalin William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet. Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Ron Howard's adaptation of the family holiday favorite, is no exception; this star Jim Carrey's Grinch, not the good doctor's--a classic tale whose timeless charms are needlessly reconfigured to fit the big box office name.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Inside a snowflake, high atop Mt. Crumpit, just north of town, a certain cave-dwelling curmudgeon peers down on the Christmas-adoring Whos of Whoville as they make their frantic Yuletide preparations. And this isn't your run-of-the-mill sourpuss. This is the Grinch (Jim Carrey), and he is positively sick of those nog-sucking cheermongers.

Why is the Grinch so, well.. so Grinchy? Nobody knows, not even his lone companion, the endlessly oppressed canine, Max. It could be because his head wasn't screwed on just right; or maybe his shoes were too tight; or because his heart was two sizes too small.

But with an expression that goes from glum to glummer and then to a malevolent lip-curling grin as a wicked lightbulb clicks over his head.. .a wonderful, awful idea is born. Christmas is back and the Grinch plans to do something about this annoyingly-happy holiday.. .once and for all.

So the Grinch dons a disguise and pays a visit to Whoville, bringing them a bit of his own special Christmas grinching. During his sortie into Whoville he encounters little Cindy Lou Who (Taylor Momsen), lone among the Whos in that she harbors serious Yuletide doubts, thinking everyone is all kerbobbled over the shopping and hoopla and wondering about the real meaning of Christmas. Her father, the befuddled postmaster Lou (Bill Irwin) is not much help to Cindy—her Mom Betty, (Molly Shannon), is totally immersed in her quest to beat Martha May Whovier (Christine Baranski) in the Whobilation lighting competition.

So Cindy decides to take matters into her own hands, trying to find out everything she can about the Grinch: Who he is, why he doesn't like Christmas and why he is held in such utter contempt. Her innocent questions turn Whoville upside down since anything to do with the Grinch is considered blasphemous behavior by Mayor May Who (Jeffrey Tambor).

But ultimately, these two kindred spirits—one searching for just one thing meaningful from the yuletide holiday, and the other unearthing a part of his soul long ago buried and forgotten—will come together, and collectively learn the true meaning of Christmas.
