Irvin2020 - One of the Best Christmas Movie Ever Made!4 star

I love many Christmas movies, since Christmas is my favorite time of the year... but when it comes to figuring out which ones are the best, โ€œElfโ€ would definitely qualify. There are many amazing Christmas movies out there, but sometimes, nothing can beat comedy! Even though thereโ€™s a little bit of questionable content, itโ€™s perfectly okay for kids to see! Everyone should see this movie at least once in their lives. At the same time, they should listen to both the soundtrack and the score. The score music fits the plot of the story and makes it more alive, and the makers of the movie chose sensational music that, when combined, make the best mix of Christmas music out there that is very summarized. Iโ€™d suggest even buying this movie on DVD. You wonโ€™t be disappointed!

mm197000000 - Childish (not in a good way)1 star

If burping and farting humor is your thing or if you can stand an adult behaving like a (prety stupid) child for the duration 97 minutes, this is your flick. I like Will Ferrell but we switched off after about very long and relatively boring 35 minutes, not even our almost 5 year old son thought it was funny he demanded a better movie after only about 10 minutes. No clue how this got a 83% / 78% on Rotten Tomatoes. It appeared, as if the movie and its humor did not age very well.

Oregon Pacifist - What?2 star

After hearing so many good things about this movie, I finally decided to give it a shot. Was this supposed to be a comedy? It wasn't funny. I didn't laugh or smile once.

Cap-A1995 - This is what's wrong with the world1 star

There are different tastes in comedy. Some stuff I find funny, you may not. And vise-versa. BUT, the "humor" in this movie is simply dives below "child-ish" gags, and enters a new realm of stupidity. It's not funny. It's not cute. Nothing is even executed well. This movie is absolutely the worst and most miserable film I have ever sat through. I'd rather watch all of Adam Sandler's terrible hack-fraud films than rewatch this pathetic piece of garbage. It's a waste of time, money, and brain-cells. If you enjoy this; you are what's wrong with this planet. Period. P.S. I never even cracked a smile. Nothing in this film is remotely related to humor.

HenryDavid13 - Christmas Can Come Anytime for You5 star

12/3/16 Son of a nutcracker, there are so many Christmas movies out there! One thatโ€™s great for Christmas (or any time of the year) if Elf. We open with a story book, learning about elves. They have very limited job options and love to tell stories, especially Papa Elf (Bob Newhart), who tells us the story of a human he adopted and raised as an elf: Buddy (Will Ferrell). After seeing Buddy accidentally end up in the North Pole, we get a quick montage of him being raised, then he joins the elf workforce and learns his true parentage. After a talk with Santa (Ed Asner), Buddy sets out to meet his father Walter Hobbs (James Caan). Along the way, he discovers a whole new world: the real world. Whether he runs into coffee shops to congratulate them or just runs around in a revolving door, Buddy expresses all our inner childs, and is an example of what happens when we let our inner child run unchecked. The movie wastes no time getting started, and once it gets started, itโ€™s non-stop laughter and heart, and coherently tells the story of Buddy coming home to his. The contrast between the North Pole and New York City is hilarious and obvious, whether itโ€™s the motion-capture buddies of Buddy reminiscent of Rankin-Bass Christmas specials compared to New Yorkers and their realistic attitudes, or Buddyโ€™s sense of discovery. We get more than laughs, but a genuinely warm story of a father and son reunited, and with the focus on Buddy and Walter, we truly get to care about Buddyโ€™s dilemma and Walterโ€™s reluctance and confusion. John Debneyโ€™s score, combined with other Christmas music are the best way to spread Christmas cheer, so letโ€™s sing it loud for all to hear! The dialogue is loud and clean for all to hear, and the laughs keep coming. Elf is the perfect Christmas movie for the family, like a live-action Pixar movie, balancing hilarious humor with a legitimate character story. This movie goes on my nice list for perfect Christmas movies and movies in general! You did it! Congratulations! Great job everybody who worked on this movie! Itโ€™s great to know you did this! Thanks! 12/21/13 Merry Christmas movie fans. As an early present, you get, Elf, starring Will Ferrell. While it may seem juvenile to some, there is an authentic and real plot to it. We get the likes of Buddy the elf as a main character. He's a human raised by elves, and now he seeks his human father, who is a money grubbing bleep on the naughty list. Throughout, we see Buddy meet the real world. It reminds me of Don Quixote in that Buddy is thought of as "insane." While sounding childish, (there is childish humor in this one) the way they tell the story is so grand, and you really get to care for these characters. The difference between the North Pole and New York are black and white, with elves so much smaller than Buddy, and stop-motion animals, then when you get to New York, it feels like real life. That is how it should be with a family comedy like this. John Debney provides a charming score, even if most of it is Christmas tunes, there's still a feeling of authenticity to it. Elf is Will Ferrell's best movie ever, and has stood the test of time by a decade, and will stand for decades to come.

One of the greatest Christmas movies of all time. Will Ferrell is outstanding and hilarious as Buddy the Elf. He is filled with so much joy and happiness that it makes you wonder why there arenโ€™t any people around like him, or at least make you there was. Anyway, always recommend this movie to anyone who wants to have a little Christmas Spirit and/or just wants a good laugh. Enjoy!

"Elf", a movie centering around a human who is raised by elves in the North Pole, was hilarious!! There were so many funny scenes that I can't pick a favorite! And even though it was made in 2008, I still love it today! I'm a little late in getting a review in, but for the holidays, "Elf" is a must watch this Christmas!!
