Much better than I ever expected and the musical score by Danny Elfman was top notch. I though the film makers did a great job of retelling a semi-stale story and they included just enough fresh material to keep it entertaining. Highly recommended for a family with just enough new material for mom & dad to enjoy.

The original is way better and at times it felt like the plot was slow to take off and develop. It was cute and had its funny moments.

Definitely a family friendly movie. If you’ve seen the original this isn’t any different however, the animation of this movie does make it a bit more adventurous & exciting. Not really a must see but if you’re looking for something to get you started for the holidays this would be a start.

Uggghhhhhh I was so disappointed. The story was all over the place it was like a bunch of kinda good scenes just randomly pasted together. The music was awesome though! It's hard to make new Christmas music but there's like a whole album of good new songs.

We loved that it has a few differences while still remaining true to the original story from the 1996 version! This was a wonderful little “update” and we will absolutely buy it to add to our holiday favorites collection!

Very well done, but I still love the original animated one. And I missed the song, “You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch!” All in all, very cute and Max was wonderfully fun!

The movie was really cute if you've never seen The Grinch before, but who hasn't? I agree with another comment I saw, nothing will compare to the Jim Carrey version. Sorry Benedict.

The filmmakers believe they have better emotional beats at the end than what that hack Dr. Seuss came up with—and in the process make the Grinch pathetic and practically groveling.

What the production may have lost in a “nasty-wasty skunk” of an antagonist, it gains in an inspired voice cast (led by Benedict Cumberbatch) and a dazzlingly merry and bright visual palette.

The filmmakers preserve Seuss’s narrative beats but strain to replicate his whimsical spirit.
