Remember Jim Carrey’s live action portrayal in Dr. Suess’s The Grinch That Stole Christmas (in case you don’t I’ve included the trailer. You’re welcome)?
How The Grinch That Stole Christmas (2000)
If there were ever characters designed to be animated, it’s Dr. Seuss’ s because his drawings, when placed in a real life context, come off not only weird but off-putting–and to be honest vaguely sinister.
Which I’m reasonably certain wasn’t the original intent.
The Cat In The Hat (2003)
In GCI though, it just works.
And while I have not seen the movie, that dog looks like it’s trying to steal the movie out from under Benedict Cumberbatch’s Grinch.
