ELF (Theatrical Release USA 2003)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìì

Elf—sweet, gentle—turns into a very nice holiday child/adult share film.  Will Ferrell casts well with the supporting team of Bob Newhart, James Caan, and Edward Asner. The storyline has been well interpreted and directed well by Director Jon Favreau. No complications here. It’s a light, fun watch.


One of Santa’s elves finds he is really a human.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Jon Favreau for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Kent Alterman, Cale Boyter, Julie Darmody, Toby Emmerich, and Jimmy Miller for making the film possible.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s an easy-on-the-mind, fun movie. It’s worth a watch.
