The plot is very simple, and this is it. There are people that live in a snowflake, the Who's, are celebrating Christmas soon. It is their favorite holiday of the year. at the edge of Whoville, is a mountain an trash dump called Mt. Crumpit. On the top of that mountain is where the Grinch lives. A guy that hates Christmas, because he was bullied around the season when he was younger, by the eventual Mayor of Whoville, Augustus May-Who. One of the townspeople, a little girl, named Cindy Lou-Who, tries to make the Grinch love Christmas again. She invites him to go to the Christmas festival, he reluctantly goes and has a nice time until the end, where he is made fun of, by the Mayor, for the same thing he did all those years ago. He then burns down the tree and flees back to the top of Crumpit.
He then devises his plan to 'steal Christmas'. He then, while singing, creates a Santa outfit, his sleigh, and takes his dog Max, to be Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. He then steals all the childrens gifts, and is about to destroy them, by pushing them off of the top of Mt. Crumpit, when he hears Whoville waking up and not being upset that there are no gifts, but rather, he hears them singing. He realizes that Christmas doesn't have anything to do with gifts, but with love. He then saves the presents, returns them, and then sings with the Who's, as he invites them back to Mt. Crumpit, to share in the Christmas feast.
I love this film, because it puts an emphasis on how a lot of people think Christmas is in the gifts, when it should be about the love. The Grinch thinks this when he is stealing the gifts, but then he realizes that he was wrong. I love it because of all the singing that is in this movie. I no lie, used to rock out to Faith Hill's "Where Are You Christmas?", in my living room when I was like four. I bought the soundtrack when I had my first iPod back in like 2007, and I still listen to it to this day. There are a few songs on this soundtrack that I love, including the Faith Hill one, there are also "Green Christmas", "Christmas of Love", "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch", and "Lonely Christmas Eve".

Quotes of the Day: "How could it be, it came without ribbons, it came without tags! It came without packages, boxes, or bags! Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store? Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more?" - Grinch
"And the Grinch's heart grew three sizes that day." - Narrator (Sir Anthony Hopkins, in this instance)
