For their eighth fully animated feature, Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved holiday classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl's generous holiday spirit. Funny, heartwarming, and visually stunning, it's a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism. Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Whoville when he runs out of food. Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter, and louder celebrations.

The UK theatrical release was censored in order to obtain a U classification; the distributor chose to remove several uses of mild bad language (ass) from a song number in order to avoid the film receiving a PG rating uncut. See more »
This is the prim example of a kid's movie that takes 0 risks. It doesn't do anything note worthy. I can say the movie looks good. I can say the voice acting is okay. As far as flaws go , the story is ungodly predictable and bland. This film just has no personality. By Illumination standards this is probably one of there better films , which says a lot about there movies. I thought all the designs were okay , with the exception of the Grinch himself.
He doesn't look very evil or nasty. He just kind of looks annoyed.
If you have small child , there probably going to enjoy this so if you want to see a movie with them this is a fine choice. However I can't talk about this movie without mentioning how bad Tyler the Creator's remix is. It is ungodly bad and so stupid.
I can see people liking this film and that's fine. Me on the other hand , I would rather watch the Jim Carry version. At least that film took risks.
