Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch

Dove Approved for All Ages

The Grinch is a truly magical, even poetic, rendition that remains faithful in some important ways, not only to the original 1966 animated short How the Grinch Stole Christmas, but to the children’s book itself.

Dove Approved for All Ages

Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel have outdone themselves with the wonderfully funny script that they created for this film. There is no objectionable language in this picture and the only thing even remotely in bad taste is a "fake farting" scene. Aside from that, you will be amazed by the [...]
