The Grinch

The Signal - - Usa today -

Plot: The Grinch (Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch) is back in a new an­i­mated movie that stays (rel­a­tively) faith­ful to the clas­sic 1966 TV spe­cial “How the Grinch Stole Christ­mas!”

Di­rec­tors: Yar­row Cheney, Scott Mosier

1 hour, 45 min­utes

Rat­ing: PG Up­side: Cum­ber­batch is the per­fect choice to voice the char­ac­ter, even if he does re­sort to an Amer­i­can ac­cent.

Down­side: Less is more with the Grinch. Ex­pla­na­tions (he’s an or­phan) and his apol­ogy for his over-the-top be­hav­ior are un­nec­es­sary.
