Disarming, genuinely hilarious and touching

"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear."

Hollywood, it would appear, is determined to inundate movie-goers with at least one holiday-style motion picture at Christmastime every year. These festive movies are intended to be warm and heartfelt, and are designed to lift our spirits, but only very few will end up making the hall of fame. Films such as Na... read more

Enjoyable Christmas film...

For the past 4 Christmas's in a row, this has been on TV and every time I have missed it. I would have watched it even if it wasn't Christmas but it didn't really feel right. When it was on TV, I decided to watch it. I didn't really have high expectations for it since I am not really a big fan of Will Ferrell and have hated 2 films he has been in previously. I was surprised at it to be honest beca... read more

A good movie

You might find him terribly annoying and not funny at all but you can’t argue that Will Ferrell is one of the most successful and recognizable comedian of the last decade. Personally, I have some mixed feelings about him. Indeed, he can be sometimes downright hilarious but he keeps playing over and over the same characters and it is getting less and less entertaining and more and more obnoxious.... read more

Description: Buddy (Will Ferrell) was a baby in an orphanage who stowed away in Santa's sack and ended up at the North Pole. Later, as an adult human who happened to be raised by elves, Santa allows him to go to New York City to find his birth father, Walter Hobbs (James Caan). Hobbs, on Santa's naughty list for being a heartless jerk, had no idea ... (more)

"I think a lot of people would disagree with this one but I have to say as a Will Ferrell fan, this was really bad. I didn't find it funny at all. I think I only laughed once or twice the entire movie."

"I thought to myself 'Why did I give 'Elf' a 5 when it deserves a 2?', well the North Pole is well designed and there were a few funny moments but I thought Will Ferrell was over the top and almost everything he does here would be dangerous if copied! The target audience is presumably younger kids but then all the adults like it too?! Give me a break!"

Movies my daughter watched - 2013 (82 movies items)

"Re-watch - Jan. 5th, 9th (with my parents), Dec. 7th Christmas strikes again. Funny enough, the 5th was the day the Christmas tree & decorations came down, and the 1st time she watched Elf was the day the tree & decorations went up. At this point I'm hoping the absence of Christmas decorations around the house will lead to her moving on, as I'm already over it."

Movie Diary December 2013 (23 movies items)

"This is one of my favorite Christmas movies, tied for first with How the Grinch Stole Christmas with Jim Carrey. It has me laughing every single year, no matter what. :) Buddy: First we'll make snow angels for a two hours, then we'll go ice skating, then we'll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookiedough as fast as we can, and then we'll snuggle. Buddy: We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup. Buddy: This place reminds me of Santa's Worksho"

"22.12.2013 "So, good news - I saw a dog today. Have you seen a dog? You probably have." Christmas is close now so i decided to watch a couple of my favorite Christmas movies today. I love this movie. It's by far the best of the recent Christmas movies. I can't believe it's already 10 years old. Will Ferrell is absolutely hysterical in his role here. It's probably his best character next to Ron Burgundy. This is not just one of the funniest Christmas movies ever, it's one of the funniest movies"

"Re-watch: Dec. 7th Xmas decorations go up in our house, Elf plays on the TV. That's our tradition. And no, my opinions of this film have not changed at all. Ferrell was born to play Buddy."

Not really funny and pretty silly

“Will Ferrell plays the main character Buddy and he gives a pretty annoying performance

'Elf' is not really funny and pretty silly, the story is pretty boring; a human who was raised by elves goes to the real world to find Santa and does a whole load of silly things

Sure, I liked the whole design of the North Pole (the Christmas Town) but apart from a few hilarious jokes, 'Elf' isn't very funny and is actually quite silly” read more

Tis The Season For My Fave X-Mas Films & Specials (30 movies items)

" Will Ferrell fits very comfortably into the role of an elf who finds out that his elfin roots are alot shorter than even the height of his colleagues. An engaging heartwarmer of a holiday tale as Santa's largest little helper journeys out to the big city to discover that as an elf in the North Pole, he might be unusually big, but out in the real world, he's still got alot of growing up to do. A hell of alot. "
