I'll admit I was a little skeptical about the newest Grinch movie. I was not a fan of the live action version. But I do adore Benedict Cumberbatch so I thought I'll give it a shot. We walked out of the theater loving it. The Grinch is funny, heartfelt, and all the nods to the original make me one happy girl. While it might be a fresh take on a classic tale, this Grinch movie retains the overall feel of the first film and that is what makes it one of our new holiday favorites.
