How the Grinch Stole Christmas

We recently watched the travesty that is the How the Grinch Stole Christmas. This was a movie that didn't need to be made. I love the original story and have a strong nostalgic connection the cartoon version, but am at a loss as to why this movie was made other than a belief that with a decent director, it couldn't help but make money.

I think I have also figured out why it didn't get horrible reviews. It is too long. The beginning of the movie I thought was particularly bad. The movie does improve as it progresses. I think that it is long enough that many forget how bad the beginning of the movie is by the time it is over.

Watch it if you must, but on my scale of 1-100, I give it only a 68.
