Elf is one of those rare Christmas comedies that has a heart, a brain and a wicked sense of humor.”- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

The ever-optimistic Buddy the Elf is searching for the true meaning of Christmas, but it’s not going to be easy, in this hilariously off-the-wall, Ferrell-tastic holiday comedy! One Christmas Eve long ago, a small orphan baby crawled into Santa’s bag of gifts and was carried off to the North Pole. Named Buddy (Will Ferrell) and raised by Papa Elf (Bob Newhart), it soon became clear that he didn’t fit in as he was much bigger than the other elves. Determined to find a place where he belongs, Buddy sets out to find his real dad—in New York City! Buddy soon discovers that the big city is no place for an elf and his mean dad (James Caan) is on the Naughty list. But most importantly, he finds that the world is seriously lacking in Christmas spirit. So with the help of a friendly department store elf (Zooey Deschanel), Buddy tries to teach his dad and the world the true meaning of Christmas spirit and to prove to everyone that Santa (Ed Asner) really exists. (Dir. by Jon Favreau, 2003, USA 97 min., Rated PG)
