The timeless classic “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” makes our hearts grow three times its size.

When it comes to the unnecessary revamp titled “The Grinch” released this past fall, though, I would not touch the film with a thirty-nine-and-a-half-foot pole.

The revamp begins as one would normally expect, with a Grumpy Grinch, festive Whos, and the cutest dog I’ve ever seen in a movie by Illumination all play a part in why I would not watch this again.

The Grinch in the new film is portrayed as more of an angry neighbor than a fearful mountain-dwelling monster. Compared to Jim Carrey’s 2000 film “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” it is nothing more than a flop.

The only good factor is Max, the Grinch’s sidekick and pet. The adorable pup stole my heart to say the least. Overall, I did not like the movie. I was very disappointed in the presentation and the representation of the Grinch. I would give this movie a 6.3 out of 10.

It has some good qualities such as the animation, though the story is lacking the evil character we know and love. For me, this was definitely a bust.
