A major ouch. The kiddie-lit holiday homily — "Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store./ Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more" — illustrated in theme-park sets and costumes (rodenty snouts on all the citizens of Whoville save the little heroine, Taylor Momsen, and Christine Baranski). Jim Carrey, as the hairy green Scrooge-cum-Sasquatch, is under so much makeup he might as well be voicing a cartoon. Directed by Ron Howard. (2000) — Duncan Shepherd
