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.

[It's] a story aimed at the very young ... but The Grinch is still a nicely wrought movie that should be a nap-free experience for accompanying parents.

The Grinch isn't a bad movie, but neither is it a necessary one. And that's OK - he might not be the Grinch we deserve, but he's the one we need right now.
