…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.
