Dr Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas 2000 Movie Review
“Inside a Snowflake, like the one on your sleeve, there happened a story you must see to believe” said Anthony Hopkins, narrator of this magical, fantasy movie How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Starring funny man Jim Carrey as the mean, ugly green monster, The Grinch, this remake of the classic cartoon movie is a big budget and big box office movie that remains true to the original story which was based on the book by Dr Seuss.
This is the sort of movie that you should watch on Christmas Eve or Thanksgiving Eve – a great start to your holiday festivities, being enjoyable entertainment for all the family,(although it’s PG rated, we don’t recommend for under fives, as The Grinch could be seen as a little scary). How the Grinch Stole Christmas exudes the true meaning of Christmas, the joy and the love with The Grinch despising the avarice and greed amongst men – the movie is both moving and extremely funny, although telling a magical story that is as relevant now as when it was first told, which is exactly what makes it a wonderful spicey classic Christmas movie.
Anthony Hopkins, the classically trained actor excels as narrator of this special, Christmas movie with his rich voice tones guiding us through the story about the magical land of Whoville and its’ inhabitants. Directed by Ron Howard, How the Grinch Stole Christmas has special effects, music by James Horner with Jim Carrey performing the songs. Lavish costumes and special effects make-up, courtesy of Rick Baker along with fantastical hair do’s complete the amazing spectacle!
