Buddy was a baby in an orphanage who stowed away in Santa's sack and ended up at the North Pole. Later, as an adult human who happened to be raised by elves, Santa allows him to go to New York City to find his birth father, Walter Hobbs. Hobbs, on Santa's naughty list for being a heartless jerk, had no idea that Buddy was even born. Buddy, meanwhile, experiences the delights of New York City (and human culture) as only an elf can. When Walter's relationship with Buddy interferes with his job, he is forced to reevaluate his priorities.

    I can relate it when someone doesn't rely on a macho attitude.. It's how I want to be too.. I can't be serious.. I must be crazy.. Or else I panic.. Instead of healthy socializing.. I choose crazy.. Crazy is always the right way.. I never get too close to people.. Because when you get too close.. They start influencing you right or wrong.. I hate the idea I have no control over myself.. I must always be in control of my own actions and thoughts.. Therefor, I choose crazy over social.. If that means doing my own thing whether it's walking around in an elf suit, but with a healthy clean conscious, so it be.. If a woman doesn't want me because I'm not macho enough, then I guess I've outgrown them.. And macho is not what I'm in for.. Too bad.. If that even means staying alone, I will.. Because there's no greater joy than that of a peaceful mind..

    This movie has changed my life in the most awesomest of ways. It has shown me that tall people are not a threat to the environment and cannot unintentionally harm anyone. Speaking from a hooman bean who is 5"2, tall peeps can sometimes appear spooky but this movie has expressed to me in the most delightful of ways that when it is Christmas, everyone is welcome. And pancakes with everything on them are amazing. That is all. Goodnight, farewell. :)

    This is about a grown man who think he is an elf. Come on. Why do people like this movie. This is a 6.9. This is a 4. Come on. The story line awful. I was going skip this movie. But then people to say it was good movie. And it is about a grown man who think he is an elf. How stupid does a comedy movie have to be before people wake up realize they have been ripped off. Do not waste your time. And do not waste your money. What is your first clue that this is an awful movie. It is about a grown man who thinks he is an elf. Please. What is it with people do they have to think ever comedy movie ever made is funny? Do they have to like ever comedy ever made.

    Like most people around the holidays, I'm usually up for a watching (or re-watching) of the great holiday classics ("Wonderful Life", "Home Alone", etc.). For whatever reason, however, it took me until 2016 to actually sit down and watch "Elf" all the way through. While maybe not jumping up to the top of my "all-time Christmas list", I did find Elf to be an enjoyable romp.

    For a basic plot summary, this movie tells the story of Buddy (Ferrell), a human boy raised in the North Pole due to a mix-up with Santa Claus (Ed Asner). For most of his life, Buddy believes he is an actual elf, until realizing his shortcomings in that community. As such, he decides to strike out for the "human world" in order to find his real father (James Caan). Along the way, Buddy (as a result of his endearing cheerfulness) brings a bit of Christmas spirit to all those around him that are in dire need of it, including a young retail worker named Jovie (Zooey Deschanel).

    To me, "Elf" is primarily a success because of the iconic character that Ferrell creates. The script/plot itself is about as irrelevant and corny as they come, but Ferrell's quirky energy steals every single scene. Quotes like "You sit on a throne of lies", "Bye buddy, hope you find your Dad!", and "Buddy the Elf, what's your favorite color?" will forever be burned into my memory! I don't think there is an actor out there who could have played Buddy as perfectly as Ferrell.

    Simply put, I'm glad I finally sat down and watched "Elf" from beginning to end. I don't know if it will get watched religiously every Christmas in my home (time will tell on that one...but maybe it will grow on me even more!), but I can tell you that I will be quoting it going forward!
