Aweful movie. Where is Cindy Lou Who's dad? So we are supossed to believe the grinch hooks up with a single mother and wants to be a parent to these kids in some weird family.... This movie is nothing like the orginal story except for the iconic song lyrics and his faithful pet dog.

WAY underrated movie. I liked the story and the visuals. It adds to the story, bringing new stuff viewers haven't seen, while still feeling like a Dr. Seuss movie. Watch it, you won't regret it.

My kids love this version.

I am not a fan at all. They tried to make him "real" so, he's a depressed person, dealing with a tough past and flashbacks.

No thanks.

My kids loved this Christmas movie. We watched it several times and will be adding it to the movie list for next year.

A beautifully animated version with a unique twist on the story.

In this version of the Grinch, it portrays him as being a person who no one really interacted with. Unlike another popular version; How The Grinch Stole Christmas, the people who live in Whoville aren’t scared of him but rather at most times forget he is even there. The background story of the Grinch is different and very much relatable than the other Grinch movies I have watched. In this movie he is shown to have to soft spot for families because he never had one. He grew up alone in an orphanage and therefore decided to be alone for the rest of his life, until a little girl who lived in the town; Cindy-Lou Who touched his heart with her kindness and thoughtfulness. I would definitely recommend this movie to everyone as the sound tracks of the movie was great and overall everything was too. 5/5 stars

The Grinch hates the cheerful festival of Christmas that happens every year in Whoville, so he decides to steal it from them because of what happened in his past. I loved this movie because it was funny, cute, and heart-warming. I have not watched the live-action Grinch movie, which is mostly preferred by everyone, but I believe this animated version is beautiful because of the storyline displaying The Grinch’s sad past relating to his present nature and behaviour. The ending was special and heat-felt because every who forgives and accepts Mr. Grinch even if he was mean. My favourite character was Max the dog because it was cute to see him be loyal and help The Grinch even if he is the “villain” of the story. Overall, I think ‘The Grinch’ is a beautiful and amazing movie to watch during Christmas time. 5/5 -@LibbyTeen of the Hamilton Public Library's Teen Review Board

The Grinch is Christmas film based on the book How the Grinch Stole Christmas! by Dr.Seuss. This version I enjoyed because it made Grinch more personable... But for the same reason, I didn't like this version either. I watched this movie in the theater and I fell in love with it. It is a remake of the original, with its own modern twist. I like the old and the new version equally! It is about a grumpy Grinch plots to ruin Christmas for the village of Whoville. I love the whole plot, the theme and everything about the movie. This had the most sweetest ending to it, heart-melting. My favourite part would have to be the ending because of how much heart-melting it was. I would recommend this movie for people of all ages because I know everybody will love it! If you like the classic one you might the modern one as well. Overall, this is one of the best movies to watch on Christmas, It is amazing! 5/5.

I have to agree with the most of other commentators, this re-make is a farce and completely unnecessary. Just because it's the director of Despicable Me, I guess he's given free rein. After this mess, I hope they're smart enough to reel him in. I wouldn't want him thinking he could do 12 Angry Men with the Minions next. Ouch!

Wasted Cumberbatch's talent. Remakes are more successful when they change the story to fit the acting talent. Worth watching once just to confirm for yourself that this is disappointing but it won't do well as an annual Christmas TV special - I won't watch it again. The tunes wouldn't be fun to sing.
