Critic Reviews of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"SlateFebruary 05, 2008
Five-year-olds might go for it, but people who grew up with Jones' version will be looking at their watches and grinding their teeth.Chicago ReaderFebruary 05, 2008
Cloying fancy gives way to gross-out comedy, twisted social commentary, affecting pathos, and weirdly sexualized romance in this lurid live-action version of the classic children's book.VarietyFebruary 05, 2008
Shrill, strenuous and entirely without charm.Time OutJune 24, 2006
This cinematic candy floss honours the Seussian universe by satirising our own. And Carrey's comic tornado of a performance is a triumph.Globe and MailMarch 19, 2002
How the Grinch stole Christmas is one kind of larceny. How Jim Carrey steals the picture is another matter entirely.Village VoiceAugust 17, 2001
Perhaps 20 minutes too long and subject to torpor.Cinema CrazedDecember 06, 2013
Such a departure from the book, it's not even Dr. Seuss.Common Sense MediaDecember 24, 2010
Live-action version of classic has some crude, scary moments.Suite101.comSeptember 25, 2010
An unforgivable transgression from the usually reliable Ron Howard, "Grinch" boasts the visual polish of a Menards tree aisle and resembles not a cheerful Christmas, but rather what the bloodcurdling onset of a mescaline bender might feel like.TheMovieReport.comJanuary 17, 2010
Howard and the rest of the crew do something the late Dr. Seuss never would: take chronological age over the youthful, innocent spirit that lingers untouched in everyone--and never goes out of style.TV GuideFebruary 05, 2008
Parents can relax: Ron Howard's version of Dr. Seuss' tale of the Christmas-napping Grinch is a smartly stylized hoot.Contra Costa TimesNovember 29, 2007
The costumes astound, the sight gags abound, but the heart, oh the heart, now that must be found.
