The Grinch


Closer (UK) - - Reviews -

THE CAST Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch, Rashida Jones, Phar­rell Wil­liams, An­gela Lans­bury THE STORY The green grumpy one is on a mis­sion to ruin Christ­mas for all of Whoville. THE VER­DICT It’s been a good 18 years since the Dr. Seuss clas­sic was last on the big screen and we can’t wait to see how Bene­dict’s ver­sion of the lime-hued fuzzball fares against Jim Car­rey’s orig­i­nal meany. No pre­views were avail­able ahead of our dead­lines, sadly, but we’re sure this will make any­one’s heart grow at least three sizes…

1. These terms and con­di­tions to­gether with any spe­cific rules dis­played or re­ferred to on the rel­e­vant page of Closer mag­a­zine in re­spect of a prize draw or com­pe­ti­tion (a “Prize Draw No­tice”) and Bauer’s Gen­eral Terms and Con­di­tions (avail­able on­line at http://www.bauer­le­ com­pe­ti­tion-terms.html) are the prize draw rules (the “Rules”) that ap­ply to each and ev­ery prize draw and/or com­pe­ti­tion of any na­ture in­cluded in Closer mag­a­zine (a “Prize Draw”) un­less oth­er­wise ex­pressly stated in the Prize Draw No­tice. By en­ter­ing a Prize Draw, en­trants agree to be bound by these Rules. 2. Each Prize Draw is or­gan­ised by Closer mag­a­zine, part of Bauer Con­sumer Me­dia Lim­ited of reg­is­tered ad­dress Me­dia House, Lynch­wood, Peter­bor­ough Busi­ness Park Peter­bor­ough, PE2 6EA (“Bauer”). In the event of a dis­crep­ancy be­tween these terms and con­di­tions and the Prize Draw No­tice, the Prize Draw No­tice shall pre­vail. 3. Bauer re­serves the right to can­cel or amend a Prize Draw at any time with­out prior no­tice. 4. All Prize Draw en­trants must be over 18 years of age at the date of en­try and res­i­dent in the UK. Proof of age may be re­quired be­fore a prize-win­ner can claim a prize. The el­i­gi­bil­ity of any en­trant is at the sole dis­cre­tion of Bauer. Em­ploy­ees and agents of Bauer and its as­so­ci­ated com­pa­nies (in­clud­ing the fam­i­lies of such em­ploy­ees and agents) are not el­i­gi­ble to en­ter a Prize Draw. Only one en­try per per­son and per house­hold is per­mit­ted. Ad­di­tional el­i­gi­bil­ity re­quire­ments may ap­ply to a spe­cific Prize Draw, e.g. a valid pass­port, visas and/or driver’s li­cence will be re­quired if the Prize Draw’s prize in­cludes travel out­side the United King­dom and/or car hire. 5. Prize Draw en­tries must be made in ac­cor­dance with the Rules and must be re­ceived by Bauer be­fore the clos­ing date spec­i­fied in the Prize Draw No­tice (the “Clos­ing Date”). En­tries made oth­er­wise will be in­valid. 6. No pay­ment is nec­es­sary to en­ter a Prize Draw. Un­less oth­er­wise stated in the Prize Draw No­tice, all Prize Draws are en­tered by send­ing an ap­pro­pri­ately worded e-mail to the email ad­dress spec­i­fied in the Prize Draw No­tice. Any such e-mail must in­clude a postal ad­dress to con­tact you at in con­nec­tion with the Prize Draw and oth­er­wise must com­ply with any in­struc­tions for sub­mit­ting such email en­try set out in the Prize Draw No­tice (for ex­am­ple, to iden­tify which Prize Draw is be­ing en­tered). Each Prize Draw must be en­tered by a sep­a­rate email. Al­ter­na­tive means of en­ter­ing a Prize Draw – if any – may be set out in the Prize Draw No­tice and where there are al­ter­na­tive means of en­ter­ing a Prize Draw no dis­tinc­tion shall be made be­tween en­tries re­ceived by any means pre­scribed un­der the Rules. 7. Prize-win­ners will (un­less spec­i­fied oth­er­wise in the Prize Draw No­tice) be cho­sen at ran­dom by an in­de­pen­dent judge from all qual­i­fy­ing en­tries. In all mat­ters, the de­ci­sion of the judge(s) shall be fi­nal and no cor­re­spon­dence or dis­cus­sion shall be en­tered into. 8. Prize-win­ners will be no­ti­fied in writ­ing within 6 weeks of the Clos­ing Date. 9. If a prize-win­ner fails to re­spond to cor­re­spon­dence from Bauer and/or fails (for what­ever rea­son) to claim his/her prize within 14 days of re­ceipt of Bauer’s no­ti­fi­ca­tion, Bauer shall be en­ti­tled to se­lect an al­ter­na­tive prize-win­ner. In such cir­cum­stances Bauer shall use rea­son­able en­deav­ours to no­tify the al­ter­na­tive prize-win­ner within nine weeks of the Clos­ing Date. 10. Prize-win­ners will re­ceive their prize within 6 weeks of no­ti­fi­ca­tion un­less oth­er­wise spec­i­fied in the Prize Draw Rules. 11. De­tails of the names of prize-win­ners can be re­quested by writ­ing to Closer at Aca­demic House, 24-28 Oval Road, Cam­den, Lon­don NW1 7DJ, spec­i­fy­ing the rel­e­vant Prize Draw, pro­vided that such re­quest is re­ceived by Bauer within ten weeks of the Clos­ing Date. 12. Ev­ery prize is sub­ject to avail­abil­ity and Bauer may sub­sti­tute any prize for a prize of a sim­i­lar na­ture and/or com­pa­ra­ble value. There is no cash al­ter­na­tive to any prize and no prize is re­fund­able and/or trans­fer­able. 13. Bauer ac­cepts no re­spon­si­bil­ity or li­a­bil­ity for any lost, dam­aged or in­com­plete en­tries and all such en­tries will be deemed in­valid. Proof of despatch shall not be proof of en­try. Only en­tries re­ceived in ac­cor­dance with the Rules will be ac­cept­able. 14. Bauer will not be li­able if a prize does not reach a prize-win­ner for any rea­son out­side the con­trol of Bauer or if a prize is dam­aged dur­ing de­liv­ery. 15. En­tries shall not be re­turned to en­trants. 16. Prize-win­ners agree to take part in any pro­mo­tional ac­tiv­ity re­quested by Bauer and con­sent to his/her name, county and pho­to­graph be­ing pub­lished for the pur­poses of the Prize Draw and pro­mot­ing Closer and/or Bauer and its busi­ness. 19. Where rel­e­vant, all taxes, in­sur­ances, trans­fers, spend­ing money and other ex­penses (in­clud­ing meals or per­sonal ex­penses up­grades etc.) are, un­less oth­er­wise specif­i­cally stated, the sole re­spon­si­bil­ity of each prize-win­ner. 20. The terms and con­di­tions of any third party sup­plier may ap­ply and must be ac­cepted and com­plied with by a prizewin­ner to ac­cept the prize. 21. Bauer may vary the terms of, or vary the Prize Draw at any time at its ab­so­lute dis­cre­tion with­out li­a­bil­ity to any en­trant or other per­son. 22. Other than for death or per­sonal in­jury aris­ing from neg­li­gence of Bauer, Bauer hereby ex­cludes (so far as is per­mit­ted by law) all li­a­bil­ity for any loss, dam­age, cost and ex­pense, whether di­rect or in­di­rect, how­so­ever caused in con­nec­tion with the Prize Draw or any as­pect of the prize. 23. These terms and con­di­tions shall be gov­erned by and con­strued and per­formed in ac­cor­dance with the laws of Eng­land and Wales, whose courts shall have ex­clu­sive ju­ris­dic­tion to de­cide any dis­pute aris­ing un­der them.
