How The Grinch Stole Christmas Review
Now this is a movie I have loved since childhood, if you forget all the taunts I got for having an upturned nose like Cindy Lou Who!
The movie is set in Whoville where the Grinch lives atop a mountain. He hates Christmas while the rest of the town love it! Cindy Lou Who meets the Grinch and tries to make him love Christmas again after it was ruined for him when he was younger. Her plan nearly works but the Grinch is once again upset by what is happening around him and decides to steal Christmas away. He takes the decorations and the presents leaving the town upset until they realise that those things aren’t what Christmas is about. It’s about being together. The Grinch is touched by this and returns all he has stolen and is welcomed into the community once more.
The Grinch is a lovely story about what Christmas is really all about. It’s a lovely moral for children and a heartwarming tale for adults. There is a lot of humour within this movie as well, well, there would be with Jim Carrey playing the Grinch wouldn’t there! He creates the most perfect Grinch on screen and still makes me laugh years after seeing the movie originally.
If you haven’t seen this movie you must have been living under a rock because it is a staple of any Christmas night in. It’s great for your kids to watch too and realise that the presents they’re getting and the ones they may not receive don’t matter over having their family and friends around them.
I definitely recommend watching this movie. People of all ages can and will enjoy it and it’s something the whole family can watch together.
I mean…isn’t that what Christmas is all about?
Until next time.
