A Cartoon brought to life. Funny & Entertaining !,
This review is from: Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Collector's Full Screen Edition) (DVD)
The reason I am writing this review is that I can't believe all the bad reviews it got, and had to put in my 2 cents!
I have never saw a cartoon/Book brought so wonderfully to life, as this one that Ron Howard directed.
I guess the Grinch IS obnoxious, but wasn't he in the book, too? And for the make up on the Who's go, They came pretty darn close to how the Who's looked in the cartoon.(Little noses, way off the wall hair do's, funny clothing, big feet.Also, Max the Grinch's dog is just TOO TOO cute :)
They also did a good job on the Grinch's appearance.
The thing I love most though, is the way they did the town, with all the shops, post office, etc. MILLIONS of dollars went into this, and such DETAIL on EVERYTHING!!!
It is just wonderful to watch! The DVD has TONS of extras on it too.Games, songs, etc, for the TV AND PC.
The movie is a couple hours long, but what movie isn't ? Actually, it is one hour and forty five minutes long.
Like I said , the movie is wonderful, the sets and the actors (especially Jim Carrey) are flawless, and I give it an overall thumbs UP !!!!!
It is great for kids and adults alike.
