SRC 139: How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
It's JINGLE TURDS month! When your family friendly holiday film plays more like a Ken Russell fever dream than it does an engaging live action adaption of a cartoon classic, you know you've grinched your way into the Restroom...
HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS deals with the classic cartoon in live action form as Jim Carrey desperately tries anything to be funny as the title character of the Grinch, who hates on the Who's Christmas celebration for reasons we're subjected to in an unnecessary backstory. What follows are 104 minutes of ugly makeup, embarrassing performances, overblown production design, and off color jokes. Merry Christmas!
This eggnog guzzling mess is only available for purchase on Amazon, YouTube, and VUDU, but as always, you're better off leaving this cinematic Christmas tree fire to us and go watch NATIONAL LAMPOON'S CHRISTMAS VACATION again instead.
Joining us as part of our extended co-flushing team this time out are Brandan Haize & Anthony Dynar, the Low Score boys from YouTube's TortureVision channel. Low Score essentially does for videogames what we do for films here in the Restroom. Check them out!
Sit back now and give a listen as Griffin, Crest, & Knight flush you down the Cinematic Bowl with, HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS...
