Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the green gloomy Gus in this all CGI adaptation of Dr. Seuss' original book.

In the town of Whoville, the human-like creatures called Whos are filled with excitement about celebrating Christmas. However, the only one who is not amused is a cantankerous and a green-furry creature named the Grinch, who has a heart that is "two sizes too small" and lives in a cave on the top of Mount Crumpit just north of Whoville.

Meanwhile, 6-year-old Cindy Lou Who notices that her mother Donna is overworked trying to take care of herself and her baby twin brothers, Buster and Bean. Initially deciding to send a letter to Santa Claus to help her mother, Cindy encounters the Grinch. He sarcastically tells her that she'll have to talk to Santa face-to-face about it; she attempts to go to the North Pole to talk to Santa, but when Donna tells her that it would take a month to travel there, she instead decides to try trapping Santa with the help of her friends.

With Christmas approaching, all the Whoville festivities give the Grinch a flashback about his childhood spent alone and unwanted in an orphanage. The Grinch soon decides that he will steal Christmas from Whoville to assuage his distress. Teaming up with his dog Max and (briefly) a large reindeer he names Fred, he puts his plan into action only to fall into Cindy Lou's trap, and she may just be the one to get him to change his ways.
