  • Elf [2003]
    Ross Sayers

    Since its release in 2003, 'Elf' has become a Christmas staple in my household. Along with the Home Alone films, it is a must-watch to get in the holiday mood. It's funny, I watch my favourite Christmas films every year, yet can't say I watch my favourite all-time films every year. So does that make 'Elf' one of my all-time favourites? Quite possibly.

    Will Ferrell plays a very different kind of character than we would usually expect and this role will definitely help to win over some of his detractors. He is perfectly charming and his innocence in the fish-out-of-water story gets many laughs throughout without overdoing it. Similarly, the wonderful Zooey Deschanel plays a character far more cynical than more of the so-called 'adorkable' roles she usually receives. Watching these two actors playing off each other is both a joy and a rarity.

    Despite the multitude of familiar elements, the film contains enough seasonal charm to override any minor qualms.'Elf' turns the Christmas to eleven and is all the better for it.

    Having been forced to watch 'Elf' only hours after ignoring its showing on the TV by my girlfriend at a time when I was less than in the festive spirit, I was unimpressed with the prospect. However, ol' Will Ferrell did it again and, although a film aimed at kids, he still manages to pull out a cracker of a performance that entertained even a scrooge. Don't get me wrong though, it is jam-packed with typical holiday cheer and almost sickeningly happy clich├ęs of Christmas but its mix of slapstick and cheeky wit made me "lol" more than a few times.

    To someone that likes this kind of film, it would be excellent but even to me, who generally steers clear of such festive film fun, it was good.

Christmas family comedy directed by independent filmmaker Jon Favreau. Will Ferrell stars as Buddy, a human being who has spent his whole life believing himself to be an elf. Brought up by Santa (Edward Asner) and his elves at the North Pole, Buddy has spent the last 30 years happily working in Santa's toy workshop. But when his ungainly size starts to become a liability in the elf-sized working environment, Santa suggests that Buddy head to New York City to find his biological father (James Caan). Needless to say, the unlikely spectacle of a 6'5' man dressed from head to foot in bright green stands out a mile on the streets of the Big Apple, and the good-natured Buddy finds himself in all sorts of scrapes as he gets used to his new family and surroundings - and they get used to him.
