Product Description


Jim Carrey stars in the Ron Howard adaptation of Dr. Seuss's enduring tale of the evil Grinch in Whoville and the Christmas he looks to sabotage. Carrey also lends his quick mouth to "Grinch 2000," a rap duet with Busta Rhymes, and to "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch," which he goes alone in a voice somewhere between Buster Poindexter, Don Rickles, and Pavarotti on acid and amphetamines. The mistletoe has its place above country-pop star Faith Hill, who delivers the album's first single, "Where Are You, Christmas?"

Other high-profile names here include those Canadian jokesters BareNaked Ladies, ska-punks Smash Mouth, and that omnipresent boyband 'N Sync. Lesser names like the Eels, the modest pop experiment of a man called "E", and the orchestral grandeur of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra contribute solid festive tunes. A few dialogue bits are scattered throughout, and James Horner's movie score finishes things off.--Rob O'Connor

4.0 out of 5 stars "Some one has to love this CD, January 6, 2001
Format:Audio CD
SO then," I thought, "let it be me." I bought this album looking for the James Horner score and dreading the unwelcome intrusion of songs not even in the movie. I was also uncomfortable about the format of dialogue interspersed with those foreign songs taking up space on the disc. Busta Rhymes, Faith Hill, 'N Sync also weren't looking good. HOWEVER, by the second listen through, I was extremely pleased with my decision to purchase. This is pretty well tied for the quirkiest Christmas CD I own (actually---they're the only two I own!). The more I listen to this, the more I appreciate the fun spirit. The Busta Rhymes track is a lot of fun, Faith Hill is doing James Horner's beautiful song, so even she is worth hearing out! The Eels and Barenaked Ladies are much more fun than I imagined after hearing them briefly in the movie and credits. Jim Carrey's "You're A Mean One" does grow on you. I don't understand purists who can't handle a remake. No one is abolishing the original TV version or its soundtrack... they're still out there and they're still very good. New interpretations can be good things too once in a while! I must admit though that I still find Sixpence None The Richer's "You're A Mean One" to be vastly superior a reinterpretation than Mr. Carrey's. I wish it had been tracked down and included here so that it could get a wider audience. It is quite marvelous. The only other omission, and it is one more noticable than this private peeve of mine, is of any extended version of "Welcome Christmas." The only version on the disc is from its brief appearance in the movie with the Grinch butchering it playfully. It could have gotten more attention somewhere on this full CD. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall Pretty Good!! November 10, 2000
Format:Audio CD
When I got this CD, I was excited because it had the song, "You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch". All I have to say is that Jim Carrey did a terrible job doing the song. They really should had the orginal version. If they would have done that I would've given it 5 stars. The rest of the CD is good like Green Christmas by Barenaked Ladies, You don't have to be alone by *N Sync, and my favorite song on the entire album, "Where are you Christmas by Faith Hill. Faith did a great job on the song.
Also the CD had some voice clips from the movie, which was cool. This CD will gets you in the Christmas mood.

I enjoyed the movie dialogue on this CD almost more than some of the songs. The movie was awesome. There is certainly a variety of tunes here...from Smash Mouth to Faith Hill to N'Sync. (My favorite being Hill's "Where are you Christmas").
It is certainly original, and fun, but if you want traditional tunes, this is not for you. Obviously if you are interested in buying this CD because of the movie, than you can't miss; making this CD worthy of 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A inadvertant family favorite. January 25, 2001
By Dracaa
Format:Audio CD
I got this album because it has "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch", which is one of my favorite Christmas songs out there. I originally fast-forwarded the tape to that spot and kept it there, listening only to Jim Carrey's hilarious version of the classic song. But eventually I started to listen to the other songs, and after awhile I put it in on a family car trip. My mother and younger brother were initially not too fond of it----but after a few times of listening to it, they started to like it. Two months later, it's Mom who always asks me to put in the tape! It's a family favorite. We love the "Grinch 2000" rap in the beginning and I enjoy "Green Christmas" a lot, if only because I can relate to that feeling of being outside of the celebration. Mom likes "Christmas of Love", which is the only reason I don't fast-forward past it (very annoying song ^_^ ). "Lonely Christmas Eve" is delightful----quite an original song that is based off of the original Grinch poem. The Trans-Siberian Orchestra will sweep you off your feet and into the music. "Christmas is Going to the Dogs" has some hilarious lyrics if you listen for them. My brother does a very good impersonation of Jim Carrey for the "Grinch" song, and the two mellow tunes nicely round out the selection. We enjoy the instrumentals not quite as much because we can't sing along *g*, but James Horner, as always, as produced quite a score. And the snipits of movie dialogue are hilarious. The family favorite, hands-down, is "Better Do It Right" by Smash Mouth. This song is AWESOME!!!!!! Original, well-written, with a melody you won't be able to get out of your head. As always, Smash Mouth weaves in an interesting message, and the song shines accordingly. Great piece. Heck, buy it for that song alone----it's that good. We keep listening to this album even after Christmas is over. Great fun for all! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Album November 12, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This album is a very nice one, filled with famous artists and funny dialogue. There are 10 songs on the cd, 4 movie dialogues, and the score from the movie. The dialogues, especially grinch schedule are funny and add to the anticipation of the movie. There are some very good and entertaining christmas songs. Where are you Christmas by Faith Hill, the first single off the album, is a great, emotional song. Other good tracks were done by the Barenaked Ladies, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and the team of Busta Rhymes and Jim Carrey. Some disappointing ones were done by Nsync and Smashmouth, although they do wear on you and can be enjoyable. The score is excellent and makes me even more excited about going to see this movie. The reason i gave this album only 4 stars is one song, the remake of one of the most catchy songs ever, You're a Mean One, which is done now by Jim Carrey. In trying to make to make this sound a bit more humorous than the orignal, he actually loses the humor and makes the song uninteresting. They didn't even let him sing the entire song. I know it would be hard to beat the original, but they definitely could have done better. Aside from that, if you are looking for some great new christmas songs and can look past this horrible remake, the entire family can enjoy this cd. It will put you in the mood for not only the movie, but for Christmas as well.
