  • Ferrell makes the damn thing work. Even though he can't get naked or use naughty words, there's a devil of comedy in Ferrell, and he lets it out to play. Director Jon Favreau has the good sense to just stand out of his way. show more

  • Funny and intelligently made, a film for kids and adults that's both sweet and sardonic...Elf stays perfectly in balance, a pleasure throughout. show more

  • Its message is unobjectionable, and there are a few laughs to be had, but too much of Elf is like Buddy's favorite meals: syrupy sweet. show more

    laughs here and there, but not the best. There are many better movies that Will Ferrell has done. I think this is an ok movie, If there wasn\'t so many flaws I will like it a little bit more but since there are, I am giving it 3 stars, and thats the nicest i am being
