How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a 2000 film that, although it got terrible ratings, I think is not that bad.

Good Qualities

  1. Interesting, albeit steampunk-like, gadgets created by the Grinch, specifically the Mean-1 and his Cave in Mt. Crumpet.
  2. Cindy Lou Who gets a much bigger storyline then in the book and original cartoon.
  3. It has a great version of "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch".
  4. Some pretty funny jokes.

Bad Qualities

  1. The Grinch is ugly and even scary at times.
  2. The way Grinch treats Max, even after his reformation, makes it hard to see him as a sympathetic character.
  3. The Grinch-Martha romantic subplot isn't explored, so it's basically a waste of time.
