How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Blu-ray/DVD, 2009, 2-Disc Set)

Movie synopsis

Director Ron Howard casts comedian Jim Carrey in the title role in this live-action adaptation of the famous Christmas tale by Dr. Seuss, giving this rendition of HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS a delightfully manic spin. Carrey is virtually unrecognizable in his elaborate green makeup, but his anarchic comic touch is unmistakable. He manages to fully embody the grumpy title character, while still supplying his own comedic touches, and it is his performance that makes the film a treat for adults and children alike. The candy-colored set design for the town of Whoville and the jubilant score contribute to the overall feeling of innocuous fantasy that the Grinch disrupts with his dastardly deeds. The familiar story of the Grinch stealing every present in town on Christmas Eve has been expanded to incorporate flashbacks to the Grinch's childhood, which serve to explain his hostility toward the Whos. As Cindy Lou-Who, a little girl so sweet she sees goodness even in the Grinch, young Taylor Momsen strikes just the right note of adorable ingenuousness. Howard gets the performance the film needs from her, as her character makes the Grinch's eventual change of heart both believable and touching.

Editorial reviews

"...Mr. Carrey's ability to pentrate his character's disguise and get away with his usual mugging and clowning is technically no small accomplishment..."
New York Times - Stephen Holden (11/17/2000)

"...Fantastic....A hugely imaginative technical achievement....Carrey wears the costume well..."
Variety - Dan Jolin (01/01/2000)

"...Thanks to makeup whiz Rick Baker's surprisingly flexible latex work, Carrey's patented rubbery expressions are allowed to come through unimpeded..."
Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen (11/17/2000)

"...HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS still has heart....Carrey gives a maniacal performance..."
Box Office - Michael Tunison (01/01/2001)

The Grinch that puts a smile on your face!

Created: 25/01/11
For everybody that is in the Christmas mood during the holidays, I recommend you get a copy of How The Grinch Stole Christmas. I can guarantee that it will put a smile on your face once you get done watching it! It has great humor and Jim Carrey is the right fit for this character! A must see if you haven't already and for the ones who have will watch again and again, etc...

After seeing a few minutes of this movie at a family member's house I wanted more. I went on a wild hunt to find this dvd set at a reasonable price. After searching and price comparison shopping I found it on eBay. This is a fun and exciting movie from start to finish! It was a great price for the set. This is a very enjoyable movie for children ages 6-100!

Jim Carrey was made for this role and the visuals of Whoville are stunning. Great Christmas classic that I enjoy seeing again and again. Blu-ray is the best way to see this.

Favorite Christmas movie

Created: 30/11/10
Many people do not enjoy this movie but this has to be my favorite movie. Jim Carey played the Grinch perfectly and is incredibly funny. Give it a chance and if you don't like to laugh then don't purchase the movie.
