Product Details


Product Description

Special Features

The best of the half-dozen short segments on The Grinch DVD mirrors the best part of the movie itself, namely Rick Baker's Oscar®-winning make-up. Baker and star Jim Carrey are such interesting personalities that their stories about the time-consuming process are entertaining. For the kids, Max's Playhouse has some simple games and three sing-alongs. How interesting you find the rest of the extras will depend on how much you liked the film. An unhosted segment on deleted scenes is nothing special, and the segment on how the movie extras, including members of the Cirque de Soleil, worked on their bits could have been far longer. Trying to match the movie's scale, the DVD even boasts recipes. --Doug Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated! An excellent Christmas movie Feb. 27 2012
By Stu
Format:DVD
The Grinch's answering machine message: "If you utter so much as one syllable I'LL HUNT YOU DOWN AND GUT YOU LIKE A FISH!... If you'd like to fax me, hit the star key."

Just one of the many hilarious lines from this movie. The direction, artistry, costumes, make-up, acting, and comedy are all top-notch. I'd have to say this is the best cinematic interpretation of a Seuss story available. There are burping jokes for the kids (and us immature adults) and risqué jokes for the adults (they'll fly over any kid's head).

Definitely recommended for all ages! Don't miss out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Puttin' on the Seuss Dec 10 2006
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Many kids

Enjoy Christmas

They like it a lot

And this film

Is about the Grinch

Who did not

The film gives the background, and fills in some blanks

The Grinch as a child was subjected to pranks

He fancied a Who, with the name Martha May

He tried to impress her and to his dismay

They laughed at his efforts, his gift and his face

So he destroyed the classroom and fled from that place

Then,

He moved to Mount Crumpet

And made him a home

While the green hairy creature seethed under the dome

Until one cold day at the town Christmas party

When young Cindy Lou showed him how to be hearty

Then Mayor May-Who went and spoiled all the fun

By taunting the Grinch 'til he came all undone

He went up his mountain, and he started scheming

And when he was through he was smiling and beaming

He'd ruin their Christmas; he knew what to do

Revenge is the sweetest when it's overdue

If you've read the story you know how it ends

How the Grinch stole that Christmas from his former friends

So what happened next?

I won't give it away

This Christmas this movie will show every day

So if you're a Grinch you can run, but not hide

As you try to stifle the feeling inside

Just gather the kids for a clean yuletide treat

Merry Christmas to all!

(Now this poem's complete)

4.0 out of 5 stars Suprised. May 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I can't believe I liked this movie. I hate Jim Carrey. He was nothing like he is in his other movies. This movie is great. I love how they added more to the story than the original cartoon version. A must own.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too much of a good thing? May 10 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Y'gotta understand: I love Jim Carrey. I think he is the greatest comedian since Dick Van Dyke--skip Mike Meyers and Robin Williams--Jim Carrey is nothing short of a genius, but this is a movie that simply did not need to be made. Certain stories don't need to be two-hour spectacles. "Dumbo," for instance, at only one hour running time, is Disney's shortest full-length animated motion picture, and it doesn't need any more length. It does everything in one hour that it needs to do. Adding to it would detract from its power. More is less. The same is true of the story of the Grinch; it doesn't need any more detail added; both the book and the 1/2-hour cartoon carry the story as far as it needs, and the addition of more details simply weakens the plot. No, I can't abide this picture in spite of my admiration for Jim Carrey. If you don't have Dr. Seuss' story in your DVD collection, I strongly suggest that your money is better spent on the cartoon with Boris Karloff as your narrator.
