One of the very best Christmas movies of our time!

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.
