Why watch this film?

The movie is the first adaptation of a Dr. Seuss book to the big screen and was a box office success upon its release in 2001 – despite some slip-ups when it came to the source material. The film tells the story of Grinch (Jim Carrey), a green creature who hates the Christmas spirit and does everything he can to ruin Christmas. The movie directed by Ron Howard ('A Beautiful Mind') received three Oscar nominations, taking home the statuette in the Best Makeup category.
