Rate this:
A re-telling of the classic tale about a grumpy old creature living in a cave on Mt. Crumpet who can't stand to see his neighbors in Whoville enjoying themselves. Things are especially bad at Christmas, when the Whos kick their merriment into high gear with fantastic celebrations. This year, the Grinch decides to dress up like Santa Claus on Christmas Eve and steal all the Christmas gifts and decorations so the Whos can't enjoy the season. What he finds, however, is that Christmas in Whoville is much more than gifts and decorations, it's a time to celebrate love and friendship.

I have to agree with the most of other commentators, this re-make is a farce and completely unnecessary. Just because it's the director of Despicable Me, I guess he's given free rein. After this mess, I hope they're smart enough to reel him in. I wouldn't want him thinking he could do 12 Angry Men with the Minions next. Ouch!

Wasted Cumberbatch's talent. Remakes are more successful when they change the story to fit the acting talent. Worth watching once just to confirm for yourself that this is disappointing but it won't do well as an annual Christmas TV special - I won't watch it again. The tunes wouldn't be fun to sing.

Wow, I didn't think anyone could ruin this film but they did.
The original was a classic because of the music and the story line.
Here they kept most of the story line, but completely changed the music to rap.

It was alright, but I prefer both other versions of this story.

Grew up on this story. This version has an updated look on Whoville and the residents but didn't care too much for the music. Good version for family watching.

Too musical, and nothing like the How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Stopped watching after 20ish minutes,

The catalog description for this version of the Grinch is perfect, first of all. Secondly, I liked this version because it made the Grinch more humanly personable... but I also didn't like this version for the very same reason. The more they remake this movie, the more unsure I am if the Grinch really is supposed to be super mean, like in previous versions, or just done with society, like in this version. Also, I think I want the goat as a pet or an alarm system.
