Movie Review: Elf


Abbi Moore

Christmas, a time to spend with family and friends. You share good food and exchange presents, and if you’re like me, you watch Christmas movies! If you’re out of ideas on what to watch, I can definitely help. Elf is a very popular and enjoyable Christmas movie, and I just know you’ll love it!

Elf was made in 2003 and stars actors such as Will Ferrell, Zooey Deschanel, James Caan, Jon Favreau, and others. Rotten Tomatoes gave Elf a whopping 4 stars! This movie is mainly about when an elf, Buddy, was accidentally sent to the North Pole and raised among Santa’s elves. Unable to get rid of the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, Buddy goes to New York in search of his real father. 

This film was directed by Jon Favreau, and the screenplay by David Berenbaum. At the box office, this movie made 222.6 million USD. 

I hope that this holiday season everyone can have a safe (and healthy) holiday. Merry Christmas!
