- When we first see Cindy-Lou's house, there is a long winding sidewalk that goes from her front door down into town (she sleds down it to mail her letter). In all other shots of her house, this sidewalk is missing and the road runs right by her front door.

Totally took me back to my childhood!! Don't watch if you don't like Dr. Suess . She saId was well made and the voice actors did a good job. I loved 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.
