Have you seen the new Dr Suess’ the Grinch movie? Having grown up with the 1966 “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” I figured it was a remake, and boy was I wrong! It’s a completely NEW movie!
I look forward to the original cartoon every Christmas as it has always been one of my favorites. I’m so happy I said yes to reviewing the Illuminations Dr Suess’ the Grinch Combo set. I now have a new Grinch to watch every year.
When Christmas comes around, I can’t wait to see my favorite cartoon “Dr Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas”. His hate for Christmas is legendary and in Illumination’s Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch he is back to his holiday destroying antics! This movie is hilarious from the beginning to end. It had my whole family laughing continuously.
I have always loved the Grinch’s dog Max. I’m glad that in this version the Grinch has a good relationship with his dog! Towards the end of the movie, everyone learns about the true meaning of Christmas. We are certain to watch this movie every single Christmas as The Grinch is firmly a part of our must watch list!
