Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
Critic Consensus: Jim Carrey shines as the Grinch. Unfortunately, it's not enough to save this movie. You'd be better off watching the TV cartoon.
The curmudgeonly recluse Grinch, who hates Christmas, becomes annoyed with the out-of-control Christmas festivities in Whoville, the town lying below his cave dwelling on Mt. Crumpit. But after the Grinch conspires to deprive the Who's of their favorite holiday by sneaking into town on Christmas eve to steal everything associated with the holiday, he learns that the spirit of Christmas goes much deeper than tinsel and toys.

Critic Reviews for Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Five-year-olds might go for it, but people who grew up with Jones' version will be looking at their watches and grinding their teeth.
Cloying fancy gives way to gross-out comedy, twisted social commentary, affecting pathos, and weirdly sexualized romance in this lurid live-action version of the classic children's book.
This cinematic candy floss honours the Seussian universe by satirising our own. And Carrey's comic tornado of a performance is a triumph.
Audience Reviews for Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Jim carrey did a fantastic rendition of this character the Grinch and i would say that this role is actually better than Boris Karloff
I cannot in the least bit fathom why anyone would consider this entertainment. It's so obnoxious, loud, and offensive.
