    The story is classic and Jim Carrey does a good job. It's not my favorite Christmas movie but does have good message overall.

    Except for some inappropriate humor involving the mayor and the dog, this is a pretty funny take on the classic Dr. Suess story book. Jim Carey is at his whacky best. Though at times I feel like the whackiness is a little heavy handed. It seems to boll over the primary message of the tale. That of coming together in love and friendship to celebrate Christmas.
