I could cheat and call the two different version's of Dr. Seuss's How The Grinch Stole Christmas two different entries. After all, they are two unique movies...

But the thing is, they are both based on the same darling book and have the same basic story line. So what if one is animated and one is live action? Seriously.

Whose heart doesn't warm up when the magnifier over the Grinch's heart broke because his heart grew so big? And am I the only person who really wanted to try the reindeer trick on my dog?

You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch.

You really are a heel.

You're as cuddly as a cactus,

You're as charming as an eel, Mr. Grinch.

You're a bad banana

With a greasy black peel.

You're a monster, Mr. Grinch.

Your heart's an empty hole.

Your brain is full of spiders,

You've got garlic in your soul, Mr. Grinch.

I wouldn't touch you, with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole.

You're a vile one, Mr. Grinch.

You have termites in your smile.

You have all the tender sweetness

Of a seasick crocodile, Mr. Grinch.

Given the choice between the two of you

I'd take the seasick crocodile.

You're a foul one, Mr. Grinch.

You're a nasty, wasty skunk.

Your heart is full of unwashed socks,

Your soul is full of gunk, Mr. Grinch.

The three words that best describe you,

are, and I quote: "Stink. Stank. Stunk."
