How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a 2000 American fantasy comedy film directed by Ron Howard and written by Jeffrey Price and Peter S. Seaman. It is based on the book of the same name by Dr. F. It is the first book written by Dr. Seuss in 1957. Sousse adapted for a feature film. The film was voiced by Anthony Hopkins with Jim Carrey in the supporting role Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, Bill Irwin and Molly Shannon, and Taylor Momsen as Cindy Lou Coy.
Since the film was based on a children’s picture book, many parts were added to the plot, which made it even more complete, including information about the back story of the main character and a remake of the main character Cindy Lou Coy. Most of the verses used in this book are also used in films, but some lines have been changed to some extent and some new verses have been introduced. The film also borrows some of the musical elements and traits that appeared on the major TV channels in 1966.
Everyone in Whoville loves to celebrate Christmas. The Grinch came to Weville as an infant and was adopted by two sisters. He is a shy boy who falls in love with Martha Mae Uuvier, one of the most sympathetic girls in the school. However, Augustus is the tyrant who teased Martha because he liked the Grinch better and had a beard. This is why the Grinch cuts his face when he tries to shave, and his classmates, except Martha, laugh and say that he pissed off the Grinch and hates Christmas.
He fled to the summit of Krampitt north of Weville and then took up residence. Years later, especially at Christmas, no one likes the Grinch as evil. But 6-year-old Cindy Lou thinks everyone is missing out on the Christmas theme because he focuses too much on gifts and holidays and too little on personal relationships. He met Grinch at the post office and later learned about his tragic past.
