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 noisy banging. When the Whos decide to make Christmas bigger and brighter, the disgruntled Grinch sets out a careful plan to gain peace and quiet. With help from his dog Max, the green grump poses as Santa Claus to steal Christmas and silence the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all.
“Much closer in spirit to the beloved book and the evergreen 1966 TV special” -Michael Rechtshaffen –The Hollywood Reporter
“Hollow cash grab” is one way to describe “The Grinch.” Equally appropriate would be “soulless abomination.” -James Berardinelli –ReelViews
