It was a girls night out to go and see the movie, Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch Review, starring the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch. The Grinch has been done before, but could this movie live up to all of the hype? Of course, it can. This 2018 Grinch takes the spirit of the Dr. Seuss story and through animation and laughs, Illumination nails this movie to one of the best Christmas movies that you will take your family to see this year.
This movie has lots of nods to other books and movies. Sometimes these little easter eggs go over my head, but I did notice the little Dr. Seuss books in the house of the Grinch and in Whoville. I also loved the nod to West Side story in the beginning of the movie.
My kids were laughing the entire time of the movie. They both enjoyed it. At one point of the movie my youngest leaned over and explained to me (in her sweet little voice) that the Grinch wished that he had a family.
If you aren’t in the Christmas spirit yet, hopefully the Grinch will get you and your family there. My heart grew from the beginning to the end of the movie.
The Grinch is now playing in theaters!
