Christmas can be a time of seasons greetings but also for the insanity to break out. The good thing is Will Farrell brings us this brilliant Christmas classic with his own style of humour. Buddy the Elf has definitely made it onto the Christmas Movie list!

One day at an orphanage Santa leaves his sack unattended when Buddy the baby crawls in and gets transported to the North Pole in which he eventually becomes one of the elves, though a bit too big for the whole ordeal, he eventually discovers that his Dad, Papa Elf, isn’t actually his real biological father and that his Dad lives in New York and is unfortunately on the naughty list. So Buddy travels through various wilderness and enchanted places to New York City.

There he finally meets his Dad and his new family. I’m not a huge fan of Will Farrell, some of his comedy goes over my head, others I chuckle away at, though with this Buddy the Elf and his comical timing is precisely what you need at Christmas. A film about spreading Christmas cheer and Will making Buddy an iconic character along with the greats.

As is more common in most current Christmas films, there is a love interest in the form of Zooey Deschanel, who is dashing through anyone’s snow. Her singing comes to the forefront and it’s nice to break her character out of the shell and give you that nice warm glow inside.

Christmas maybe once a year, but Buddy is definitely an every day is Christmas, with taking everything in his stride and one movie that even at Christmas Eve will get you going. Merry Christmas to everyone!
