The Grinch and his loyal dog, Max, live a solitary existence inside a cave on Mount Crumpet. His main source of aggravation comes during Christmastime when his neighbors in Whoville celebrate the holidays with a bang. When the Whos decide to make Christmas bigger and brighter, the disgruntled Grinch realizes there is one way to gain peace and quiet. With help from Max, the green grump hatches a scheme to pose as Santa Claus, steal Christmas and silence the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all.
“Benedict Cumberbatch lends his supple voice to this warmly rendered CG-animated take on the holiday classic.” -Michael Rechtshaffen –The Hollywood Reporter
“Since it required only 22 minutes for the 1966 version to tell the whole story, about an hour’s worth of filler had to be added into the new interpretation to pad it out to the still-skinny 80-minute length.” -James Berardinelli -Reelviews
