Elf is undoubtedly my favorite holiday movie. It is so fun that I can watch it over and over again. Will Ferrill plays a human who grew up living as an elf and, even though he is much larger than the other elves, never realizes that he is out of place. When he learns that he is not an elf, he sets off to New York City to find his father (played by James Caan) and try to reconnect. Since Buddy (Ferrill) is not used to the real world, he has some issues adjusting and being accepted by his father's new family. Zooey Deschanel also stars as Buddy's love interest.
I think this movie is delightful and fun for all ages. One of my favorite parts is the duet of Baby It's Cold Outside between Will Ferrill and Zooey Deschanel. She has a wonderful, jazzy singing voice that I didn't realize until I saw this movie. Also, another of my favorite things to come out of the film is the word "ginormous". I think this movie is a classic and can be enjoyed by all.
