I watch this every year, and the mailroom scene is priceless. Heart warming Christmas movie, safe viewing.

This movie is really great, like one comment already said it puts you in the Christmas spirit, and it really does. It's a great movie even to watch outside of Christmas, outside of November-December. It's a great movie even for the middle of July!

Everyone seems to love the movie Elf so very much but I'm getting sick of it year-by-year. The first time I watched this movie I thought it was very hilarious but every single Christmas that me and my family watch it I get more bored and I seem to fall asleep every time! Unlike most people, I do not enjoy Christmas movies and this movie was ruined for me because people made it become very overrated. Don't get me wrong, it's still a great movie and it is very clever, but I cannot get myself to enjoy it after I've seen it over 10 times! If you like Will Ferrell I suggest you watch this movie because he's the main character and plays the role of an elf that is clearly new to the world around him. His name is Buddy and he gets to experience New York for the first time and it is very overwhelming for him. While he's in New York he finds his last father and moves in with his new stepbrother and stepmother! That was my favourite part because nobody was expecting him just to show up in New York. It happened unexpectedly. Since I am very tired of watching this movie I would rate it at 3/5.

What do you see when you think of an elf? Probably a short, sweet-looking, creature in green clothes with sharp, pointy ears. But what happens when you are an adult human who has basically become an elf? You are tall and do not have the distinguishing features of an elf. But most of all, you do not really belong with the elves. This is the case with Buddy, a human raised in the North Pole by elves. He is sent to New York to find out who he really his and perhaps where he really belongs. What will Buddy do if he actually finds his family? Will he remain with the family who raised him, or will he join his biological family?

Elf: It's okay, Buddy. Just how many Etch-A-Sketches did you make?
Buddy: I made... 85.
Elf: 85. Well, that puts you... 915 off the pace.
Buddy: Why don't you just say it? I'm the worst toy-maker in the world. I'm a Cotton-Headed Ninnymuggins!

Leon the Snowman: Why the long face, Buddy?
Buddy: It seems I'm not an elf.
Leon the Snowman: Of course you're not an elf. You're six-foot-three and had a beard since you were fifteen.
