Fun Funny Flick For Christmas
Pays homage to a sack of Christmas movies, from the department store Claus of Miracle on 34th Street to a standing-on-the-bridge-contemplating-suicide moment, a la It's a Wonderful Life.
While the words instant holiday classic might be pushing it, Elf is at the very least a breezily entertaining, perfectly cast family treat.
It's a terrific movie, smart and funny enough to hold up at any time of year.
