The 2000 release of How the Grinch Stole Christmas will always be my favorite version. Sure, when I was little, I just thought it was funny and I didn’t love the 1966 Dr. Suess version as much. I would laugh and little Cindy Lou Who, played by Taylor Momsen, really connected with me a lot more. I would say it’s opposite today.
I’M THE GRINCH
Now, that’s not to say that I hate Christmas, bah humbug. No, not at all. I love Christmas. I love watching Christmas movies and decorating. I love snow. I just love it all within the month of December. Like, why do stores start putting out Christmas things before Halloween? Can’t we take it one holiday at a time?
Anyway, Jim Carrey was marvelous as the Grinch. Whenever I watch the movie now, I laugh at him and nod along because he speaks a lot of sense. I’ve changed into adulthood.
THE SPEAKER OF THE TRUTH
If you have never done any of the things the Grinch does, I would be pleasantly surprised. Take this first one for example, I complete this process every time I’m supposed to go out.
Another moment, because I’m an introvert at heart and it just makes me laugh. I do sometimes have conversations with myself, I will confess.
This is me. Every time I hear a Christmas song before the start of December. Actually, whenever a song just get’s stuck in my head.
Now, we all have people that drive us nuts. Whether they are in our past or present.I don’t hate anyone, but this just makes me laugh.
There are a ton more moments and one liners in this movie that are hilarious and great. These are just some of the more relatable ones to me and happen to be my favorite. This is the best version of the story and it is a hill I will die on. What is your favorite version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas?
