Discover the magic of the Mean One this holiday season! Oscar-winning director Ron Howard and Oscar-winning producer Brian Grazer bring Christmas' best-loved grump to life with the help of the irrepressible Jim Carrey as The Grinch. The Grinch is a celebration of the holiday spirit no home should be without! Why is The Grinch (Carrey) such a grouch? No one seems to know, until little Cindy Lou Who (Taylor Momsen) takes matters into her own hands and turns both Whoville and The Grinch's world upside down, inside out… and funny side up in her search for the true meaning of Christmas.
The best of the half-dozen short segments on The Grinch DVD mirrors the best part of the movie itself, namely Rick Baker's Oscar®-winning make-up. Baker and star Jim Carrey are such interesting personalities that their stories about the time-consuming process are entertaining. For the kids, Max's Playhouse has some simple games and three sing-alongs. How interesting you find the rest of the extras will depend on how much you liked the film. An unhosted segment on deleted scenes is nothing special, and the segment on how the movie extras, including members of the Cirque de Soleil, worked on their bits could have been far longer. Trying to match the movie's scale, the DVD even boasts recipes. --Doug Thomas

This new 2015 "grinchmas" edition is a huge improvement. It has been re-mastered. the picture is much clearer and well worth re-buying.
The only down sides to this re-issue is that there's no DVD Disc (But there is a digital copy) and there's no new features. So those extra scenes that have been seen on ABC Family, still have not made their way onto disc format.
If you're a fan of this movie, I'd suggest buying this "Grinchmas" Edition, even if you have The original 2009 release. The picture quality imporvement is well worth the re-buy
My wife puts together a Christmas paper chain every December. There is one link of the chain for every day between 1 Dec and Christmas eve. We open the link for a day in the morning and sometime during that day we do a family activity. One of these that has become a family tradition is our annual "Grinch Party." Everyone dresses in green, we eat green treats, drink green soda, and watch this movie.
Jim Carrey overacts the part of the Grinch to perfection. He is completely manic and fun. While initially coming across as terrifying he is the proverbial monster with a heart of gold, well, maybe tin, but some kind of metal. He is completely hilarious, and the quotable quotes never stop!
Though we watch the movie only once a year, it's quoted year-round.
The story line, the costumes, sets, caste, are all absolutely top-notch!
In my opinion this is not just a movie to be watched, it's an event. Make watching this movie an event at your place!
And though I would not say that if you are going to watch only one movie during the Christmas season that this should be it, what I WILL say is that you should make this a fun part of your Christmas season.
5 stars through and through! Christmas is coming....
