Fun Funny Flick For Christmas
I remember watching this as a kid and i enjoyed it so much. I still enjoy it to this day.
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.
This is one of those rare Christmas comedies that has a heart, a brain and a wicked sense of humor, and it charms the socks right off the mantelpiece. Even the unexpected casting is on the money.
