Synopsis

Double bill of live-action feature films based on the classic illustrated poems of Dr Seuss. Jim Carrey stars in 'The Grinch' (2000) as the eponymous grouchy green monster who lives high up on a mountain overlooking the town of Whoville. The Grinch hates happiness, hates merriment, and most of all, hates Christmas. So one year, as the festive season approaches, he decides that enough is enough - and draws up plans to steal all the decorations and all the presents from the poor, unsuspecting citizens below. Does this mean the Whos won't be celebrating this year? Not if little Cindy Lou has anything to do with it... In 'The Cat in the Hat' (2003), Mike Myers stars as the fun-loving Cat, who arrives at the home of Conrad and Sally Walden (Spencer Breslin and Dakota Fanning) when their mother (Kelly Preston) has gone out, having left strict instructions that the house must be spotless on her return. The cat proceeds to show the children how to have fun, first balancing an incredible array of household objects before sending them all crashing to the floor, then unleashing the uncontrollable duo Thing 1 and Thing 2, watched with horror by the children's pet fish. How will they clear up 'the mother of all messes' before their mother gets back?
