|Universal Pictures | Release Date: November 17, 2000||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
With Carrey hitting a career peak, this Grinch doesn't steal Christmas; it restores the season by helping energize us enough to make it through the whole thing.
Opulence almost interferes with the movie, weighing it down when it should seem lighter than air, surrounding the inarguably brilliant Carrey with too much frosting and frou-frou.
By far the best and cutest thing about How the Grinch Stole Christmas is the dog Max.
Leave it to Ron Howard to turn a plaintive Dr. Seuss ditty into a C-grade Tim Burton psychodrama.
