  • The line “6:30 p.m. Dinner with me. I can’t cancel that again.” was improvised by Jim Carrey.
  • Jim Carrey’s Grinch suit is covered in yak hair, which was dyed green and sewn onto a spandex suit.
  • No movie, other than this, has featured so many characters in heavy make-up and costumes since The Wizard of Oz (1939).
  • op-selling movie ticket of 2000, fifty million sold.
  • As of filming, this movie had the largest set at Universal.
  • The Grinch (Jim Carrey) is the only character who breaks the fourth wall in this movie. He actively tries to avoid speaking in rhyme and even interacts with the narrator (Sir Anthony Hopkins).
