It's sweet enough for the very young, edgy enough for teens, and world/pop culture savvy enough for adults.

Live-action version of classic has some crude, scary moments.

Parents can relax: Ron Howard's version of Dr. Seuss' tale of the Christmas-napping Grinch is a smartly stylized hoot.

A holiday gift, The Grinch just may steal the hearts of kids and grown-ups alike.

This cinematic candy floss honours the Seussian universe by satirising our own. And Carrey's comic tornado of a performance is a triumph.

If God is in the details, then this is the most righteous movie ever made.Jim Carrey is the only man deserving to interpret Chuck Jones' animation.

This delightful fantasy offers Happy Who-lidays to the young and the young at heart.

Carrey is superb, swamped in makeup and sounding like a cross between Hitchcock and The Honey Monster.

Howard and his writers have made some interesting choices in bringing one of the most well-known American Christmas cartoons to life on the big screen.

I sometimes felt shades of Tony Clifton beaming through the Grinch, with a good helping of the Mask. If only for Carrey's hyperactive, larger than life performance, this is a must see.

Colourful adaptation of the children's classic by Dr Seuss, redeemed by a combination of Jim Carrey's manic performance, the sets and the make-up.

Director Ron Howard's movie version of the popular Dr. Seuss classic creates a world of wonder and enchantment for kids of all ages. I found myself captivated by everything about it.

How the Grinch stole Christmas is one kind of larceny. How Jim Carrey steals the picture is another matter entirely.

Definitely worth adding to the Christmas movie pantheon, but not at the expense of the original.

Howard has certainly nailed the playfully eccentric other world of Whoville.
