Elf (PG) (2003) 93mins

Son of a NUT-cracker!

Is it really Christmas without Elf?

Will Ferrell stars as the ultimate fish out of water, Buddy, who as a baby crawls into Santa’s toy bag and is whisked off to the North Pole, where he is raised as an elf.

A misfit who grows to be three times the size of his elf family, Buddy ultimately heads to his birthplace of New York City to seek out his roots.

Unfortunately, they turn out to be a “Scrooge”-like father (James Caan) and a cynical eight-year-old stepbrother who doesn’t believe in Santa.

Worst of all, everyone seems to have forgotten the true meaning of Christmas. But using his simple elf ways, Buddy sets out to single-handedly win over his family and save Christmas in New York, hoping to at last find his true place in the world.

A real Christmas classic that’s fun for the whole family!

 

REVIEWS
Empire ★★★
Ferrell’s man-child invites sympathy and sniggers, making this amusing….. sight gags and a Santa-centred story should keep the kids happy, too.

Roger Ebert  ★★★

Kate Abbot – The Guardian
My favourite film. A story of Santa’s not-so-little helper that puts the jingle bells on her family Christmas
