The latest animated iteration of Christmas' most famous nemesis might not be strictly necessary, but it's still pretty fun - and revamped just enough to feel fresh.

This Grinch's brevity and bright, bold colors may be just the kind of thing to relax and get lost in this holiday season.

For all that makes The Grinch redundant, there's enough that still warms the heart.

Was The Grinch necessary? Absolutely not. But Illumination executed it better than I thought.

The smoothly animated result isn't as dreadful as the Jim Carrey live-action version, but it's almost as wrong-headed.

The film feels very much aimed at a very young audience and it will delight that demographic, but older viewers may be less solidly drawn in.

Older viewers may not appreciate the film as much as younger viewers, but The Grinch is not too cutesy and it has just the right amount of Christmas charm to go along with and enjoy its festive fun.

It works, as a digital pop-up book that asks us to examine the Grinches inside us all, and find the willingness to let some light in.

The Grinch is just a sweet, well-intentioned update of the classic tale, blunting some of the original's harsh edges and replacing its pointed criticisms for a story of positivity and generosity.
November 12, 2018
There's no great originality or charm in the movie as a whole, but that comedy - coupled with general perkiness - is enough to make it an adequate show

Illumination's strong suit is creating sincerely adorable characters.

A giddy sugar-rush that slows to reveal its big charms.

November 12, 2018
Fitfully amusing, harmless, and negligible. It neither detracts from Dr. Seuss' legacy nor enhances it.

It's the softness that's most interesting, and what makes the movie enjoyable to watch.
November 11, 2018
It's a modernized version of the classic that gives a little more depth to its cranky titular subject.

Sounds like pure sugar, but really it's just sweet.

The Grinch is a remake that doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it does make enough changes from the original material to stand on its own.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
November 10, 2018
Of course, there are holiday tunes galore -- a few new ones and many old -- with all gloriously capped off by "The Christmas Song" from the still one-of-a-kind Nat King Cole. And, just who can possibly get grinchy hearing that?
