A festive treat that is a sort-of delight.

The Grinch is a good Christmas movie, I guess. It covers all the bases and has a good message but it fails to be as good as other versions because it chooses to do too much.

This adaptation...finds a way to tell the story anew and seeks to provide more depth to the titular Grinch while also expanding Cindy Lou Who's role in the story.

As this is the season for family moviegoing, The Grinch throws its hat in the ring as a solid offering to spend one's hard earned money on.

A full-hearted assault on cynicism - this is a wonderful Christmas film with personality and charm enough to light up the hearts of a thousand Grinches.

A fun family film that is beautifully animated. While not as enjoyable as the tighter-paced classic, the updated graphics can be appreciated.

The Grinch takes a classic short story, adds some pointless plot digressions and then seems to completely miss the point by the end.

A fun new take on a classic tale, The Grinch exceeded expectations. It isn't perfect, but it is a fun holiday movie for the whole family to enjoy.

The Grinch will leave you with a warm, fuzzy feeling that you just can't shake.

...the Grinch still starts out with a heart two sizes too small and is transformed by the healing presence of a child. That's a message we can all get behind.

Despite its familiarity, the new version is effective and heartwarming, particularly as it emphasizes the concept of empathy.

The Grinch is bright and colorful, but the narrative feels a bit off from the anti-consumerist message that Dr. Seuss may have originally intended.
February 6, 2019
I mean who doesn't love a grouch getting a lesson in kindness and forgiveness from the adorably scrumptious Cindy Lou Who? This incarnation of The Grinch is straight up dedicated to kindness and love...the things we need most.

The film's positive messages about inclusivity and diversity are welcomed, but the film is lacking.

Fortunately for Cheney and Mosier, the film is charming enough that young kids will eat it up.

A fresh update from the 1966 cartoon film; its bright, colorful set designs, dry humor, and messages of love and kindness are perfect for the holidays.
