What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Michael Rechtshaffen Grumpy Grinch is dazzling.
Michiel Jacobsz Vermaak vir kleingoed.
Bronwyn McKay The Grinch is a wonderfully sweet story for the young and the old, filled with new tidbits that will surely be a fun festive season flick for everyone to behold.
Tomatometer The Grinch gives the classic Seuss source material a brightly animated update that’s solidly suitable for younger viewers without adding substantially to the story’s legacy.
