ABOUT THE MOVIE
Elf is a Christmas comedy perfect for all ages! The story follows Buddy (Will Ferrell), a man raised as an elf in the North Pole. Buddy, after inadvertently wreaking havoc on the elf community, sets out on a quest to meet his father (James Caan), spreading Christmas cheer in a world of cynics all along his way. The movie also stars Bob Newhart (Papa Elf), Ed Asner (Santa), Zooey Deschanel (Jovie), Peter Dinklage (Miles Finch), and Mary Steenburg (Emily).
“This is one of those rare Christmas comedies that has a heart, a brain and a wicked sense of humor, and it charms the socks right off the mantelpiece.” Robert Ebert
Did You Know?
- Will Ferrell caused several minor traffic accidents when walking through the Lincoln Tunnel in his costume because people were so surprised to see him wearing an elf outfit.
- The scene where the fake Santa is chasing Buddy around Gimbel’s had to be done in one take because it was too hard to rebuild everything.
- The cotton balls Buddy eats while in the Doctor’s Office were actually pieces of Cotton Candy that had not been dyed.
- The elf Ming Ming, who appears briefly in the beginning of the film, is played by Peter Billingsley, who starred as Ralphie Parker in A Christmas Story.
