Movie Info & Cast
One Christmas Eve a long time ago, a baby crawled into Santa’s bag of toys... Raised as an elf, Buddy (Will Ferrell) grows into an adult three times larger than the biggest elf--and realizes that he will never truly fit in at the North Pole. This holiday season, Buddy goes looking for his true place in the world--in New York City. Buddy finds his workaholic father (James Caan)--who’s on Santa’s “naughty” list, a new mother (Mary Steenburgen) and a 10-year-old brother who doesn’t believe in Santa Claus or elves. Here, now, Buddy discovers his destiny--to save Christmas for New York and the world!?

Great as always. Remaster looks amazing.
Ferrell is a hoot. So is much of this witty holiday family entertainment, which, up until the end, when the #147;true spirit of Christmas#148; must be reaffirmed, happily favors slapstick over treacle.
More likely to end up on the snow pile of forgettable Christmas-themed movies than in the vault of memorable ones.
Ferrell makes the damn thing work. Even though he can't get naked or use naughty words, there's a devil of comedy in Ferrell, and he lets it out to play. Director Jon Favreau has the good sense to just stand out of his way.
