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

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 that Buddy was even born. Buddy, meanwhile, experiences the delights of New York City (and human culture) as only an elf can. When Walter's relationship with Buddy interferes with his job, he is forced to reevaluate his priorities.

A Complete Review of Jon Favreau's work (9 movies items)

" Cast : Will Ferrell, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Zooey Deschanel, Peter Dinklage, Amy Sedaris What was it about? After discovering he is a human, a man raised as an elf at the North Pole decides to travel to New York City to locate his real father. My two cents: 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 comedians of the last 2 decades. Personally, I have some mixed feelings about him. "

Overrated Movies (10 movies items)

"We pretty much watch this every Christmas, but it's honestly more out of tradition than anything at this point. Yeah it was funny as a kid, but now that I'm older, I see that most of the stuff in it is pretty dumb, plus I find Will Ferrell in general to be pretty overrated. "
