2. How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Release Year: 2000

Directed by Ron Howard 

Starring Jim Carrey, Bill Irwin, Molly Shannon, Taylor Momsen, Christine Baranski and Jeffrey Tambor

Based on the Dr. Seuss story of the same name, How the Grinch Stole Christmas tells the story of the Grinch (Jim Carrey), a monster of sorts, who robs the town of Whoville of their Christmas cheer. Cindy Lou Who (Taylor Momsen) tries to save Christmas.

I don’t care what anybody says; this is one of my favorite Christmas movies. The original animated version of this film is an all-time classic, but this film is enjoyable. There’s just something about the mix of comedy and going deeper into the world of Whoville that makes this movie a must-watch at Christmas time.

It’s great to see Netflix acquire the rights to such a popular Christmas movie. You know every network must have been trying to get this movie.
