The Grinch is in theaters on November 9th, 2018.

Benedict Cumberbatch stars as The Grinch in this modern telling of a classic Dr. Suess story.

The Grinch is not as Grinchy as you would think. He’s lonely and more affectionate towards his only friend - Max. He hates Christmas still and wants to steal it from Whoville.

I love animated films and this one missed the mark. It was not funny when it tries to be and I found myself bored and disinterested. The music is modern with a hip-hop twist - it left me wishing for the original soundtrack.

I did appreciate the animation which was beautiful and Max was adorable.

If you have kids they will probably like it and you can take a nap.
