About the Movie

Discover the magic of the Mean One this holiday season! Oscar-winning director Ron Howard and Oscar®-winning producer Brian Grazer bring Christmas' best-loved grump to life with the help of the irrepressible Jim Carrey as The Grinch. The Grinch is a celebration of the holiday spirit no home should be without! Why is The Grinch (Carrey) such a grouch? No one seems to know, until little Cindy Lou Who (Taylor Momsen) takes matters into her own hands and turns both Whoville and The Grinch's world upside down, inside out…and funny side up in her search for the true meaning of Christmas.

Fresh: This is Jim Carrey's show, and he just about wraps the movie around his spindly green middle finger. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Shrill, strenuous and entirely without charm. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Perhaps 20 minutes too long and subject to torpor. – J. Hoberman, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: If you have little moviegoers around for the holidays, you should still make the trip to Whovillie. – Paul Clinton (,, Mar 15, 2001

Jim Carrey is soooo funny!!!!

The cartoon sucked, unless you're a little kid. This is on a whole other level of comedy. Jim Carrey is a spaz, but he is funny.


I love this movie because it really makes you appreciate your family, and the joy Christmas brings. Dr. Suess made a wonderful story, and it's now one of my favorite Christmas movies!


This movie was hilarious. It really gets you into the Christmas spirit.
