From the iconic 1966 television special to the 2018 computer-animated remake, The Grinch has become a Christmas story that’s almost unrivaled in popular culture. As such, our holiday guru Sam Johnson insisted we watch all three versions, including the 2000 live-action Jim Carrey adaptation, and talk about how exactly the Grinch came to steal our hearts.
Two hundred and fifteen minutes later, the deed has been done. What are our thoughts? Which Grinch retelling stands out? And how much worse are our lives now that all three of us have seen the Ron Howard/Carrey movie in its horrid entirety? If this Grinch-centric holiday spectacular doesn’t get you in the Christmas mood, nothing will.
