How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) 
Terrible
0.5/4 stars

A completely awful and horrible film version of the children's classic that must have had Dr. Suess rolling in his grave. Everything that Dr. Suess wrote about is completely thrown out the window here, as the choice was obviously made to ignore the themes of the original material and just go crazy.

Sure, there's the basic premise of a mean, old grinch who hates Christmas and wants to ruin it for the Whos of Whoville. Problem is, Jim Carrey's Grinch isn't mean at all, he's a giant goofball that yuks it up as much as possible for laughs. Then there's the Whos. In the book and original cartoon, the Whos aren't materialistic at all, but here they are a bunch of whining, spoiled heathens who want as much as possible. It's not a big deal that their Christmas gets stolen, because they are all so annoying and self-centered.

Someone needed to tell Ron Howard what the story was really about. I've never seen a movie stray so much from it's original source material. Don't see this. Just continue to watch the cartoon classic.
