A movie that has become a "new" holiday classic. Will Ferrell has some great one-liners and some good sight gags. My favorite part, the throwback to claymation when Buddy has to leave the North Pole. Quite funny and a good movie to put on when the families around for the holidays.

Buddy the Elf: "OH MY GOD SANTA!!" Buddy is an orphan who was stowed away in Santa's sack and raised by elves. Seeking his birth parents, he ends up in New York City, where he tries to bond with his distant father and experiences city life on his own. Buddy is one of the best character in any other movie that I watch. The movie is heart warming, touching, funny and a good watch.

This is one of the modern Christmas classics. Will Ferrell's childlike enthusiasm perfectly mirrors a nostalgic spirit of the holidays. The film features a talented cast (and the first real star turn by Zooey Deschanel) and explodes into a climax of such joyful holiday cheer that it's impossible not to be moved. I watch it very year.

I like Ferrell's humor, but I just didn't laugh much at this one. I didn't like the 'Elf' character.

Good Holiday Movie

Elf was great to watch the first time, but after watching more than once, the movie gets old.

The story is unique, following a human that was born and raised in the Santa elf world. After finding out who is father is, he goes to New York and he's forced to adapt in with the humans after being an elf for so long. There were scenes of hilarity that I enjoyed, but there was also enough drama to keep the movie balanced.

Along with the great story was characters, some a little more bland than others. There was some moments in the film that made the characters seem different, out of place, which made certain seems very good, but others seem out of place in the film. Other scenes in the film were memorable and funny, including the singing in the shower scene.

Overall, Elf is a good holi...

It's a bad one, Mr. Grinch!

O.k., i think i am the only disappointed in this movie. But first, let me say, yes some parts were funny, some hysterical; however, it was just really depressing seeing two actors that i extremely admire fall so far. For Will Ferrell, this was a good movie, I'll give it that. Unfortunately, i believe Caan and Steenburgen are too good for this, well what should i call this--it most certainly isn't film, so i guess i'll call it a two-hour or some time waste! Zooey Deschanel was the only character i felt was doing her job. It was the shower scene that i really enjoyed, that is of course while they were singing!! I couldn't recommend renting this two-hour time waste to a true friend, only to a person who lived one minute away from the nearest blockbuster video and who had 119 minutes to...
