On the 6th Day of Christmas…

…my true love gave to me: A lighthearted Seussian movie!

How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000), starring Jim Carrey, a pre-goth Taylor Momsen, Christine Baranski, and Molly Shannon is a modern holiday classic.  A re-telling of both the Dr. Seuss book as well as the 1966 film, it tells the story of the Grinch of Whoville, an outcast that hates everything about the Whos, especially their love of Christmas.  To further his vendetta, he plans to steal Christmas.  Cindy Lou Who, a little girl who also feels like an outcast tries to change his mind.

This is such a heartwarming and hilarious movie.  Obviously Jim Carrey is a guarantee for a barrel or two of laughs, but the rest of the cast is fabulous as well.  In my opinion, this one outdoes the original by a mile.

About bpaige08

I am one of those infamous 20 somethings, fresh out from under the college umbrella. I have always had a deep love for all things pop culture: movies, television, music, books, and (although I cringe to admit it to the nameless mass reading this) celebrity. Acting is my dream, although I currently need to pay off Uncle Sam before I can pursue my lifelong ambition. But that hasn't stopped my passion. I am also passionate about food, animals, and the environment. No, I am not a vegan. No, I do not want to be one. I like eggs. And cheese. They rock. I am TOTALLY open for suggestions, comments, and complaints. Feel free to harass me for my writing style or tell me how much you agree with me.
