The Grinchiest Grinch

Jim Carrey’s Stellar Portrayal of the Grinch


  Jim Carrey is a 59-year-old Canadian-American actor. He is most known for his witty slapstick, roles such as Ace Ventura, and movies such as Mask. Carrey was born on January 17, 1962 in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada. 

   He is an actor, producer, comedian, writer, and actor. He has been an active celebrity since 1977 with many movies and experience. In one of his famous movies, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, made in 2000, Jim Carrey demonstrates facial expressions and comedy, which makes this a stupendous movie. 

   Carrey does a brilliant job in any and every movie he is in just because of the way he conveys every emotion and really gets the point across. There is also an animated movie for the Grinch, but beyond comparison, the live action film is undeniably higher in ranking.

   The Grinch is all about hating Christmas which gives Carrey the opportunity to mess with expressions and attitude to nail the part. The two movies are different because one is animated and the other can be manipulated with makeup and other alterations. It gives viewers a feel of realism, rather than just an illustration.

   The main reason why the live action film with Jim Carrey is much better than the animated film is because the way that the directors included his past and allowed viewers to understand why he hates Christmas is so essential. The illustrated film does not include the past and just has the Grinch show up hating anything and everything in his path.

Unlike a movie where you can simply change scenes by changing the colors, Carrey had to spend 92 days in a costume that took over 2 hours to just get into.

   It is evident that the 2000 live action film is more popular than the animated one because every single December it is in all of the top 10 lists around the world.
