Jim Carrey does a fantastic job with portraying the Grinch. Facial expressions are key.

Very nice movie to see on Christmas.
This movie has an undeserved bad reputation. It's not perfect, but it's still a fun ride.
A movie that only works by the virtue of Jim Carrey starring in it.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas, also known as Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (known as The Grinch for promotional purposes), is a 2000 comedy film from Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment, based on the 1966 TV special which itself is based on 1957 book of the same name by Dr. Seuss. Because the film is based on a children's picture book, many additions had to be made to the storyline to bring it up to feature-length, including some information about the backstory of the title character. Most of the rhymes used in the book were used in the film, though some were slightly changed, and new rhymes were put in as well.
Directed by Ron Howard, produced by Howard and Brian Grazer, and starring Jim Carrey, it is the first Dr. Seuss story made into a feature film. The film received mixed reviews from critics, but spent four weeks as the #1 film in the United States.
DreamWorks Pictures was originally planning to co-produce the film, but dropped out at the last minute.
