SLUNK!

In 2000, How the Grinch Stole Christmas released in theaters. This film based on the classic children’s book by Dr. Seuss tells the story of how the Grinch, a green creature who hates Christmas (played by Jim Carrey), tries to ruin the holiday for the cheerful Whos of Whoville, but learns the true meaning of Christmas from a little girl named Cindy Lou Who.

Nerdy Fact: The prosthetic make-up Jim Carrey wore took about two hours to apply and one hour to remove. Carrey felt so confined and uncomfortable in the latex skin that he sought counselling from a CIA agent who taught him torture-resistance techniques.

KLAUS

In 2019, Klaus released on Netflix. The movie tells the story of how a selfish postman and a reclusive toymaker become the unlikely founders of a new tradition of generosity and joy in a gloomy town.

Nerdy Fact: The film has a hidden reference to The Simpsons, as one of the children’s drawings in Klaus’s cabin resembles Bart Simpson.
