The Grinch – A Review Haiku

Written by Michael LeSieur & Tommy Swerdlow
Directed by Yarrow Cheney & Scott Mosier


A grumpy Grinch plots to ruin Christmas for the village of Whoville.


Grinch For a New Age;
Cute, Silly and Pretty, but;
Lacking Ambition.



I have nothing but good things to say about The Grinch. Illumination’s style fits perfectly with what a Grinch movie should look and feel like. Cumberbatch’s voice isn’t going to be what I think of when I think of the Grinch, but that is okay. He is grumpy, goofy, lovable… everything that you would expect. While not classic animated cinema, The Grinch is a fun holiday film to watch with the family.
