Holiday reels: Movie magic for the whole family

How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)

Another classic, Jim Carrey style.

No one does Christmas like Whoville. The tiny town smack dab in the middle of a single snowflake is home to the most extravagant Yuletide celebrations: lights, presents, food...the Whos have got it covered.

But that's not enough for little Cindy Lou Who, who wonders if Christmas may mean more than just wrapping paper and streamers. In her quest to find meaning, she comes across the Grinch, a creature that lives in a dark cave at the top of Mount Crumpit.

The Grinch hates Christmas, and vows to do away with the whole thing. After devising an elaborate plan, the Grinch decides that he will simply steal it. Like Santa, he goes from house to house on Christmas eve stealing all the holiday trappings. But when morning comes, the Grinch - and Cindy Lou - find that Christmas may run deeper than all that.

The tale of how the Grinch stole Christmas from the citizens of Whoville only to realize that Yuletide doesn't just mean presents or food, but rather family and friends, has captured the hearts of children (and many an adult!) since Dr. Seuss wrote it in 1957.

Get ready for baubles, glitz and hours of fun trying to achieve the perfect Who-like nose.
