Kids and adults won’t want to miss the live action remake of the Dr. Seuss cartoon classic, How The Grinch Stole Christmas. As everyone knows, the story begins with the unhappy Grinch (Jim Carrey) glaring down at the tiny town of Whoville complaining about the Christmas holidays. A few days later, little Cindy Lou-Who nominates the Grinch for an award that enables him to sample all of the Holiday food in Whoville. That’s one award I would like to win. Little Cindy Lou thinks this will make the Grinch happy, but after eating, he burns down the town Christmas tree, runs back to his house on the hill, and contemplates how to steal Christmas from the people of Whoville. Then, on Christmas Eve, the Grinch dressed as Santa Clause and his dog Max sneak into town. He slides down the chimneys one at a time and wreaks havoc. He uses a big vacuum cleaner to suck all the presents from under the Christmas trees, cuts holes in the floors so the trees fall out of the house, and puts moths in the stockings (hung by the chimney with care) so that they and everything in them will be eaten. Now the Grinch is happy. Not a Christmas decoration, light or morsel of food is left in all of Whoville. But wait, the Grinch hears something! The people from Whoville are singing Christmas carols. The Grinch soon realized that Christmas comes from inside and his heart grew 3 times bigger that day! (You know the rest of the story.) Jim Carrey brings considerable depth to his character and the director Ron Howard adds new life to the story. I thought it was great and I couldn’t even see the excellent costumes and makeup! This film is destined to be a Christmas classic and I give it an A rating.

This movie has been given a PG rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
