One of my favourite movies. A real feel good and so funny. Will Ferrell hilarious and Zooey Deschanel gorgeous in it, especially when she sings. Every time I watch this I can't help believe in the big man all over again, for a moment. Ah if only the childhood magic were true.
Very funny, my 5 and 7 year old loved it.
Very corny but with some laugh out loud moments. The kids loved it.
Got this for the silly season - have watched it before and it's good fun. Gets a bit sappy but enjoy Will Ferrell in the first half.
Very funny! I thought at first it was a little over the top, and had trouble even liking the carachters. But it was a little funny at first and than keeps on getting funnier and your into before realising. In the end I recommened it to be watched.
very funny and quirky - laughed out loud a lot!
A nice family film - suitable for children.......but a bit weak I thought
More of a childs movie, average acting.
Very funny need a laugh watch
Great family flick.. the kids enjoyed it heaps!
Funny Christmas movie about a man who grows up in the north pole with Santa and the Elves and when he doesn't fit in anymore returns to human civilisation to some funny moments.
Awesome, funny. Great for both adults and children alike. Ferrell is hilarious!
Cute idea with some good lines, but little character development - nice for the littlies.
This is a great family movie, with a few laughs.
a throughly enjoyable movie for all the family
Very funny, good acting all through - recommended for all ages, even those with only a little bit of a sense of humour.
I've been on a bit of a Judd Apatow bent after enjoying the series of "Freaks and Geeks" on DVD as well as his giggle-inducing flick "The 40 Year Old Virgin" in cinemas. So I had every intention of getting around to "Elf" (Apatow produced I think?) the feelgood family Xmas flick starring the zany man of the moment Will Ferrell. The film is entertaining. Yes, Christmas is only about 60 shopping days away and despite the story being seasonal it was still a comedic riot. I loved the mix of animation during some of the North Pole sequences reminiscent of Christmas movies about Rudolph and Santa from the late sixties/seventies. The ending had cringe elements but Ferrell (in yellow tights) saves the day for the most part. Now if only the girl (Zooey whats-her-face) who plays the department store 'elf' released an album with her smokey jazz voice I'd be buying that too.
My kids aged 7 and 12 both enjoyed it...and so did I.
I thought this was quite good. I laughed more than I thought I would. Definitely worth watching.
It's no Anchorman... But funny enough none the less.
Kids will love it. A bit slow for the adults but hang there for some classic Will Ferrel moments.
Good laugh, great family movie
Very funny family movie that adults can enjoy
Funny movie and it brought out the kids in the adults.
Very funny, even makes christmas enjoyable.
A funny movie the whole family can enjoy
Waited with anticipation for this movie only to be disappointed , although my 4 yr old daughter loved it.If you've seen the trailer you've seen the best bits of this movie.
Really good feel-good Xmas movie. Good actors - can't lose.
The kids loved it and so did the adults, great funny movie
Nice,and funny movie to watch for all family.
Watch before Christmas for maximum enjoyment.
Entertaining family movie. Even my kids loved it.
Good family fun. Especially if you can watch it prior to Christmas.
Hilarious! Great viewing for the adults and kids
Very funny and my husband even had a little cry!
Very funny - lots of adult undertones!
Okay, but not as funny as I expected. The schmaltzy ending was too a bit too much.
Funny in parts and rather silly in others. A bit too adult for the kids and too silly for the adults.
Good light hearted comedy.
quite funny film with a sense of adventure.Will ferrell would have to be the funniest man in hollywood.
Funny movie for all age groups from kids to adults. Will Farrell's facial expressions are funny on their own. James Caan played a great comedic role. A fun movie.
Awkward feeling at the beginning;too lacrimating at the end. Not a masterpiece for sure.
Funny movie! A lot better than I expected. The cast selection was good and Will Ferrell was excellent. Usually I think these sort of movies are pretty trashy, but this one was cute without being too cheesy. Caan (Walter) also played the bad father with a heart of gold to perfection, he made this movie great. Kids will love this gem!
This is a MUST watch movie. Absolutely hilarious. You'll find yourself in fits of laughter!
