It’s day 16 of our very own special Christmas Movie Advent Calendar, the Screen One Christmas Movie Countdown. Join with us as we continue to countdown to Christmas with a new movie to watch each day as the days get ever closer to the big day. All films are availble via various streaming and terrestrial TV services.
Day 16 – The Grinch Who Stole Christmas (NOWTV)
Inside a snowflake exists the magical land of Whoville, wherein live the Whos, an almost-mutated sort of Munchkin-like people who all love Christmas. Just outside of their beloved town lives the Grinch (Jim Carrey), a nasty creature that hates Christmas and plans to steal it from the Whos, which he equally abhors. Little Cindy Lou Who (Taylor Momsen) decides to befriend the Grinch.
There were several choices for The Grinch. The original animated version, the recent CGI Animated version voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch or this and as we see it here at Screen One, the defining version with Jim Carrey and directed by Ron Howard. Carrey brings his larger than life persona to the role and his outrageous over the top performance simply makes this the most fun version to watch and the Christmas feeling really hits home with this one. Carrey is the life and soul of the party and and absolutely hilarious to watch. So buckle up and click play and enjoy the festival of craziness!
