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.

I wouldn’t even give it one star at all, they really should just leave movies alone instead of always trying to remake things. It was not humorous, very bland, and boring.

I was disappointed. Admittedly, I didn't come in with high expectations, but I, a sucker for a feel-good movie, didn't get the requisite teary-eyed moment, and didn't give two Hoos about the Grinch nor Cindy Lou or the whole gang. To be fair, others definitely laughed more than I did, but I just wasn't entertained.

The narrator was awful... he didn’t have that sound you’d expect. The movie was different and there were things that were done different that I liked.. they just needed to cast the voices a little different. Definitely narrator

Original and Jim Carrey movie is way better! Grinch just looks so depressed through the whole movie, we left early. Waste of $30

This movie was more heartwarming than I expected. It was a little like Jim Carrey’s performance but it remained its own thing. It did have too much of a Despicable Me vibe to it and most of the funny lines was from the trailer. However the jokes that aren’t from the trailer was funny and the heartwarming twist in the story and the ending drove me to tears (no I don’t mean sad tears) this is a holiday joy. Don’t listen to the bad reviews. Watch this and see for yourself

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.
