-starring Jim Carrey.

What is Christmas without the Grinch?!

Rated PG- This Version of Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas, is the "real-life" version of the old cartoon classic. It is filled with laughs and a great story. We watch this movie everytime we wrap presents, and end up watching it several times during the season.

IMDB.com Summary :"Inside a snowflake exists the magical land of Whoville. In Whoville, live the Whos, an almost mutated sort of munchkinlike people. All the Whos love Christmas, yet just outside of their beloved Whoville lives the Grinch. The Grinch is a nasty creature that hates Christmas, and plots to steal it away from the Whos which he equally abhors. Yet a small child, Cindy Lou Who, decides to try befriend the Grinch."


2. Elf

-starring Will Ferrel.

Rated PG- What happens when an orphan human baby ends up at the North Pole? They raise him as one of their own, of course. This silly movie shows the two world colliding when Buddy the Elf brings the North Pole spirit to New York.
