It's pretty much a given that this Grinch will please crowds: It purportedly moved Seuss' widow to tears and garnered a loud ovation at the press screening. No doubt those who dare criticize it will be called Grinches. But if you truly love Theodor Seuss Geisel and wish to honor his memory, stick with the book and the cartoon. If ever an example existed of why we shouldn't do something just because we can, this is it. A live-action Cat in the Hat starring Tim Allen is apparently now under consideration. What's next? A live-action Bugs Bunny starring Freddie Prinze Jr., with Patrick Stewart as Elmer Fudd?
