“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

Will Ferrell stars as the ultimate fish out of water, Buddy, who as a baby crawls into Santa’s toy bag and is whisked off to the North Pole, where he is raised as an elf.

A misfit who grows to be three times the size of his elf family, Buddy ultimately heads to his birthplace of New York City to seek out his roots. Unfortunately, they turn out to be a “Scrooge”-like father (James Caan) and a cynical eight-year-old stepbrother who doesn’t believe in Santa.

Worst of all, everyone seems to have forgotten the true meaning of Christmas. But using his simple elf ways, Buddy sets out to single-handedly win over his family and save Christmas in New York, hoping to at last find his true place in the world.

In addition to Ferrell and Caan, the film features an all-star ensemble cast led by Ed Asner as Santa Claus, Bob Newhart, Mary Steenburgen and Zooey Deschanel.

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.
