Elf (2003): A Christmas Classic

Elf, written by David Berenbaum and directed by Jon Favreau, is a magical Christmas tale that has become a staple of the holiday season since its release.

This family comedy movie starring Will Ferrell, Bob Newhart, James Caan, Edward Asner, Zooey Deschanel, Mary Steenburgen, Peter Dinklage, and more begins with a heart-rending misunderstanding on a Christmas long ago. As Santa Claus is making his rounds, Buddy (Will Ferrell) crawls into his toy bag and hitches a ride to the North Pole where he is raised as an elf. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, Buddy ultimately decides to go to New York City to seek out his roots.

Perhaps the best thing about this film is that it provides as many laughs as it does touching moments. And to top it all, the movie’s message is full of the Christmas spirit. Buddy’s self-centered father, Walter Hobbs, realizes what’s most important for him and puts his family first. It portrays a message centered on three things: family, love, and hope. And that’s exactly what this holiday season is all about—sending out love to everyone along the way. Elf also reminds you to listen to those around you. And if you listen long enough, you will hear the holiday cheers that spread only once a year.
