This holiday, discover your inner elf.
When young Buddy falls into Santa's gift sack on Christmas Eve, he's transported back to the North Pole and raised as a toy-making elf by Santa's helpers.

I love this movie, I have had it all through my childhood. My girlfriends favourite movie. Will Ferrell plays the part perfect, and his height just makes it better. Probably my favourite Christmas film. 8/10

One of my all-time favorite Christmas movies!

There is something very special going on in this movie. Normally, I'm not a huge fan of Christmas movies, and I'm not a fan of Will Ferrells comedy, but this movie just hits the sweet spot. After watching it, I'm always smiling like an idiot.

The basic idea is really quite weird, but the story is told with a sweetness that really sells it. Will Ferrells performance is spot on, his over the top kind of comedy just fits with the character perfectly. And it has Zooey Deschanel (even singing), which never hurts.

My absolute favorite Christmas movie, miles ahead of everything else.
