Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch
Tis the season for holiday movies, so I was excited to add Illumination Presents The Grinch to my Christmas movie collection.
When I was first learning to read, Dr. Seuss was my favorite author.
I read his books so often that I memorized many of them, and The Grinch was one of my favorites.
Dr. Seuss’ style is entertaining, but it is the message of The Grinch that warms my heart each holiday season.
This new movie version is definitely inspired by the original story, but it doesn’t attempt to recreate the magic of the original TV special.
There are similarities, but this is uniquely modern.
Cindy Lou Who is an adventurous girl with a big heart, so she is a big part of the story.
The original message from the storybook remains, but there are other modern lessons, as well.
You’ll recognize many of the voice actors including:
- Benedict Cumberbatch
- Rashida Jones
- Pharrell Williams
- Kenan Thompson
- Angela Lansbury
There are bonus features with The Minions, so you will definitely want to watch those, too.

I haven’t seen this version of the Grinch. I liked the Jim Carrey version because they made the sets so colorful and so much like the book. The original cartoon is still my favorite.
