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.

Yes, the Grinch isn’t as “grinchy” as he should be. But it doesn’t really take away from the movie. It was well done and we all liked it a lot. We will probably make this a yearly tradition.

Wish I wasn't so exhausted, ended up falling asleep midway through and my friend woke me up 5 minutes after the credits. from what i did see though I enjoyed it so much it was like a lullabye. my friend enjoyed it as well and we'll see it again when I'm not so fatigued.

Was not as funny or interesting or musically entertaining as previous versions of the film. Even the kids seemed to get bored after a while. But some beautiful visuals made it tolerable.

I enjoyed this retelling as it kept closer to the Grinch of the books and not the overacting you see in the live action version.

I never saw the one with Jim Carrey but I liked this one better because it's closely related to the book. Not crude at all!

Good short movie that does its job. Graphics is good, and since the story is already known to us, what mattered is whether you could sit through the movie. and due to some hilarious scenes, it was defi Italy worth it.

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.
