This movie is severely underrated! The most underrated and underappreciated Christmas movie of all time. This was my childhood Christmas movie. I first watched it when I was 5 years old and loved it back then, and I still love it to this day. I love how they gave the Grinch a backstory and depth, which they didn't bother to explore in the animated original film. Jim Carrey was made for the role of the Grinch. He is so funny in this movie. He was made for this role.
