Christmas Canceled (2021)

Family comedy with bizarre moments and off-color jokes, although very typical of the beginning of the millennium.

The Grinch (2000)

Jim Carrey got to play this misfit and frustrated cartoon character. (Caricature as to the exaggeration of certain anti-values). Carrey knew that it was not a simple Christmas movie, but a standard of how certain issues of social importance would be treated in the millennium that was beginning.
