Handsomely produced, but lacks heart

"One man's toxic sludge is another man's potpourri."

In among the wondrous childhood memories implanted by Theodor Seuss Geisel (better known as Dr. Seuss) is the distinctly Seuss-esque Christmas tale entitled How the Grinch Stole Christmas. A Yuletide staple all over the world, the story was eventually adapted into a successful animated film back in 1966. Dr. Seuss may have passed ... read more

Personally, I ‘m not a huge fan of Ron Howard’s work, in my opinion, none of his ‘classics’ were really that great (I’m really amazed that his latest directing effort, ‘Rush’, is in the Imdb Top 250 and I really wonder if it is indeed really that good). On the other hand, I have also noticed that his supposedly bad movies are never as bad as everyone seems to think and this movie is ... read more

'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' isn't the best family film, but Jim Carrey shines as the Grinch, and the film is very visually appealing. The film does have some of the charm of the book, and while a little creepy, it's still better than 'The Cat in the Hat', and the innuendos in this film are nowhere near as bad as that movie!

Based on the book by the famous Dr. Seuss. Inside a snowflake exists the magical land of Whoville. In Whoville, live the Who's, an almost mutated sort of munchkinlike people. All the Who's 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 which he equally abhors. Yet a small child, Cindy Lou Who, decides to try befriend the Grinch.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

“Who exactly was the target audience for this movie? There’s too much adult humor for the kids, it’s too juvenile for the adults, and it’s flagrant in its disregard for Dr. Seuss’ words and themes to please fans of his work. I suppose fans of Jim Carrey’s free associative overacting will find plenty to enjoy here, but that’s not enough to justify the experience.   No, How the Grinch Stole Christmas exists in some cinematic no man’s land where the only thing I can point to as strengths without an asterisk is the technical achievements, mainly the production, costume, and makeup design. Nary a straight line to be found, the sets look like Dr. Seuss’ curvaceous drawings come to wacky, kooky, kitsch-filled three-dimensional life. I love looking at the scenes of Whoville wher” read more

"Re-watch - Dec. 2nd Another pick from the kiddo. I still find this film to be very amusing and far better than its reputation. Granted it's not as good as the original cartoon, but I'd rather watch it over & over than waste my time on the new Illumination version."

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: November & Dec. (18 movies items)

"December 23 Re-watch "The nerve of those Whos. Inviting me down there - on such short notice! Even if I wanted to go my schedule wouldn't allow it. 4:00, wallow in self pity; 4:30, stare into the abyss; 5:00, solve world hunger, tell no one; 5:30, jazzercize; 6:30, dinner with me - I can't cancel that again; 7:00, wrestle with my self-loathing... I'm booked. Of course, if I bump the loathing to 9, I could still be done in time to lay in bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness."
