Title: The Grinch
Illumination – the people who brought you Despicable Me, Secret Life of Pets, and Sing now bring you The Grinch, based on the Dr. Seuss book How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
The movie was funny – it’s just like the Jim Carrey film, except it doesn’t have Jim Carrey, and it has a different story line; and of course it’s an animated film. So basically it’s not like the Jim Carrey film. The character of the Grinch is played by Bandersnatch Cummerbund, or Bertrand Cumbersnatch, or is it Benedict Cumberbatch? I can’t remember. It’s Dr. Strange, or Smaug from Lord of the Rings. It’s that guy. It’s still a good story, and comes across as funny and heartwarming.
The movie is narrated by Pharrel Williams, which is kind of funny because the Grinch destroys his alarm clock when it starts to play “Happy”.
Max also makes a pretty good cup of coffee. I really wish my dog knew how to do that. Who’s kidding, he does! Seriously though, he only makes hot chocolate.
The movie has some of the characters in the book, and some new characters that you get to meet. There is Fred the Reindeer (who eats whipped cream like I do), Mr.Bricklebaum (played by Keenan Thompson), and Cindy-Lou Who’s best friend Groopert .
I would recommend watching during the holidays with family.
