Revealing mistake: When the mayor has his head shaved by the Grinch, Clint Howard grabs the clippers and shaves his own head down the middle. His hair is yanked off his head before he even moves his hand. Even better in slow motion.
In 2000's How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the dreadful green creature robs the Whos gleefully until young Cindy Lou Who has a crisis of faith and rescues the Grinch from himself. More of the backstory and his odd complications come to light in this live-action retelling, and the Whos themselves are painted as a bit less special. Watch for the holidays as Jim Carrey and his antics chew the scenery. Considering Ron Howard directed this for release on Christmas, it should have been much more funny.
The Grinch: The nerve of those Whos. Inviting me down there - and on such short notice. Even if I wanted to go my schedule simply wouldn't allow it. 4:00, wallow in self pity; 4:30, stare into the abyss; 5:00, solve world hunger, tell no-one. 5:30, jazzercize. 6:30, dinner with me. I can't cancel that again. 7:00, wrestle with my self-loathing; I'm booked. Of course, if I bump the loathing to 9 I could still be done in time to lay in bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness. But what would I wear?
Question: Where exactly is Whoville located? And what year is the movie meant to take place?
