I thought the movie was good myself.

How The Grinch Stole Christmas has been named the Worst Christmas Movie of all time in a new online poll.

Editors at Moviefone.com have compiled their top festive flops, and crowned the Ron Howard-directed 2000 release top of the pile.

Never saw the remake with Jim Cary (sp?) as the Grinch, or cared to. There are some classics that shouldn't be remade.

The cartoon version of the 60's was cute, the Jim Carrey movie was not appealing.

The book was of course better than any movie could be, but I enjoyed the old cartoon version. I never saw the Ron Howard version because I can' stand Jim Carrey.

Love the cartoon, didn't too much care for the movie...don't think I even saw the whole thing. I never saw the cat in The Hat either...Mike Myers can't compete with my imagination

I'm not a Jim Carrey fan but I quite enjoyed his movie version. I'm sure some purists would hate it, but I thought it sweet and funny. Certainly not the worst Christmas movie of all time! I think that honour should go to Santa Claus Conquers The Martians or possibly Scrooged.

Now I loved Scrooged especially the Ghost of Christmas Present...she cracked me up.
