The Fool On The Hill

by Robert Andres on 12/12/2001

This is not a live version of your parents favorite book. In fact, it's a whole new take on the animated Christmas classic. Gone is the creepy, creeping narration and the overall evil nature of the Grinch himself. In an attempt to explain his character, the writers of this movie have actually given justification to the Grinch's actions and made him worthy of our sympathy. Outside of his taste for glass, the Grinch seemed like a perfectly normal green kid. He dressed like everyone else, he enjoyed the arts, and he nutured a crush on a girl in his class. Unfortunately he became a victim of hate at a very early age. No foreigner should have to experience that in grade school. High school maybe, but not first grade. At first I found it a bit disturbing that the writers would choose to build a childrens movie around such blatant prejudice of a another species. But I guess they had to start somewhere. Besides, my neices and nephews really enjoy the movie, the songs, and the cute costumes and scenery. I'll always let them watch my copy, at least until they start picking up on how to single out people who are different.

Reviews
ReviewSource BBC Online
Review ...Director Ron Howard has certainly nailed the playfully eccentric other world of Whoville, and created a fair number of wild set-pieces that rely on the weird comic energy of Carrey, whose manic, darting movements are perfect for the Grinch, a restless, driven maverick.

Review ...a delicate balancing act between four powerful forces that could have clashed but ended up in harmony: Ron Howard's balanced direction, a cheerful and inviting look guided by production designer Michael Corenblith and visual effects supervisor Kevin Mack, Jeffrey Price & Peter S. Seaman's clever script ideas and, the sine qua non, Jim Carrey as the Grinch.
