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 So THAT'S how he stole it... May 5 2004
By MZ
Format:VHS Tape
That was Jim Carrey in that costume? I don't think anyone could have pulled it off better, but for me, Taylor Momsen, who played Cindy Loo Who, was the most enjoyable to watch. What a gifted little actress. Christine Baranski and Molly Shannon, both musically-inclined favorites of mine, also danced across the screen.
So this isn't exactly the same storyline as the one penned by the good doctor himself. But it is very close, with some details added in to give adults a few more chuckles.
And if you like it for nothing else, you will love the fantasy world created by some outstanding set and costume design; terrific old and new music; and vivid special effects.
Worth a viewing or two for all of you Who's.

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 SUV vs. STATION WAGON Feb. 25 2004
By JohnK
Format:DVD
Welcome to the year 2000. Alot of things have changed since 1966.
Just as you wouldn't compare an encyclopedia to the internet, there's no sense comparing the Grinch cartoon to Grinch the movie.
Fortunately the original feature is still with us and still enjoyed by children every holiday season. Now, however, they have a version for their generation as well.
Kids today live in the world of high tech flash and kid TV stations that blare dumb jokes and comercials 24 hours a day.
They play extreme sports, have their own fashions and vacation in Disneyworld. Movies need to be in touch with their audience and this one is.
Some people complain that it's "too loud" and garish - they cringe at the nasty jokes ( which are funny enough to be forgiven and - compared to the really vapid trash in so many movies today - are nothing ) and bemoan the dark edge of some of the scenes. Alas, not everything can be all things to all people - - -unless they are kids.
Ask an eight year old to give you his oppinion and he'll probably tell you that it was funny and cool and sometimes scary.
It doesn't get much better than that.
The Grinch also gives us something else - a benchmark performance. I always suspected Jim Carey had uncommon talent but his scripts up till this one were dreadful. His portrayal of the Grinch belongs in the company of Karloff's Frankenstein, Lugosi's Dracula, Betty Davis in All About Eve as a quintessential pairing of actor and role.
Ron Howard's direction must have been good because I didn't notice it. I got the feeling you were watching people having fun while working. It flows well and the characters instead of the camera propell the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Holiday Happiness Jan. 3 2004
By Everett
Format:DVD
When Ron Howard was directing this film, I bet he had no idea that it would become a masterpiece worthy of Dr. Seuss' timeless classic. Everything in this movie is impeccable, the acting, the plot, the sets. Definetely not something you would want to pass up.
Whoville is probably the best place to be around for Christmas. Christmas Avarice that is. All anyone thinks about around the cheerful holiday time is getting presents. The Grinch is angry about this, and a couple other things. He is always left out of Whoville, and is in a little bit of denial. To ease his pain, he play's mindless tricks on the unsuspecting residence of Whoville. Little Cindy Lou is having some doubts about Christmas too. As Christmas inches closer, maybe she can save Christmas, and have the Grinch be a part of it also.
Jim Carry is a genius. No one else could've been a better Grinch at all. The girl who played Cindy Lou was just wonderful. She made you sympathize and understand what Whoville (and the world) is coming too. If only this could've happened in our world instead of Whoville. An instant family classic for the whole familia to watch and just plain laugh.
