Surprisingly, The Grinch is the first live action feature to be adapted from the work of the world's best-selling children's author, Dr Seuss. And beneath sfx magician Rick Baker's green costume Carrey, – the world's highest paid comedian – wreaks glorious havoc on his cloying sweet neighbours, the Whovians of Who-ville. Howard lays the book's moral – Christmas is about family not presents and the sickly sweet sentiment on pretty thick. Toy Story 2 got the cross generational appeal right – golly gosh Howard's Grinch hasn't. Carrey's great though.
