“I’m a cotton headed ninny muggins”
Buddy played by funny man Will Ferrell is a human that was accidentally raised by elves after he climbed into Santa’s sack when he was a baby, Buddy stays with the elves until he is an adult which is when he starts to realize that he is a human.
After pondering the idea of leaving the North Pole, Buddy eventually decides to go on a search for his real Dad (James Caan) in a magical land called New York City, of course his father thinks that Buddy is an absolute nut case and refuses to accept that he really is his son but after a positive DNA match Walter Hobbs doesn’t have much choice and tries to accept the reality of his long lost son who has come to visit him.
ELF is brilliant and that’s not just because its funny and has a perfect cast but its more to do with that fact that it should have sucked, we have seen the cliche of someone/something not from our world trying to fit in with our world far too often and far too often it has failed miserably
ELF is hilarious it has brilliant writing, the jokes are extremely funny and very well paced, Will Ferrell makes this film and honestly if he wasn’t in it, it wouldn’t be the same.
Fun Fact did you know that this was the film that helped Will Ferrell start is acting career? it’s hard to believe that a Christmas movie could be so good that it could help make someone extremely famous.
ELF is a fantastic,funny and wonderful Christmas movie for all the family, all of the actors and actresses are absolutely perfect for the film, of course none of them can top Will Ferrell but James Caan comes pretty close with his role as the asshole dad.
Watch ELF its even better than spaghetti with syrup.

Yes I went there 😉
I love Christmas movies and I love December because it’s the one month of the year that is appropriate for me sit down and watch some of my favourite Christmas Classics such as Elf, Its a wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol, a Christmas Story and National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, but as much as I love all of these movies I always have to ask my self, are they worth owning if they are going to collect dust for 11 months of the year for a few days use during December?
Of course for some people this wont be the case, I personally remember watching Christmas movies all year round when I was a child and I even know some adults who will also watch Christmas movies through out the year, but the number of people I know who do this is very small as most of my friends and family save their favourite Christmas classics for just December alone.
You may be thinking if only a few people watch Christmas movies all year then why do a lot of people watch Horror movies all year round instead of saving them for October?
Well maybe because even though Horror movies are scary, the majority of them are not Halloween themed and don’t even take place in October so technically this does not make them Halloween movies minus a select few, so society wont judge them for watching Saw in July but they may judge them for watching John Carpenters Halloween in April.
So is it worth owning Christmas Movies?
To be completely honest I don’t know and I cant provide an answer, but when I look at my movie collection I always find Christmas movies and the fact that I own them makes me think that maybe they are worth owning even if I will only watch them once a year.
I believe that one of the biggest reasons why people love Christmas movies is because we don’t get to see them that often, but maybe that’s what helps make them that little bit more special.
I hope you enjoyed this blog
