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

Claudia Puig
USA Today
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. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
A charming, silly family Christmas movie more likely to spread real joy than migraine, indigestion and sugar shock. The movie succeeds because it at once restrains its sticky, gooey good cheer and wildly overdoes it. Full Review
David Rooney
Will Ferrell graduates to his first solo leading role with flying colors in Elf, a disarming holiday comedy about a clueless innocent who saves Christmas and fosters a renewed sense of family in his reluctant father. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Ferrell provides just enough humor to get us through the familiar fare and enjoy the ride. Full Review
James Berardinelli
More likely to end up on the snow pile of forgettable Christmas-themed movies than in the vault of memorable ones. Full Review
