Stars: Will Ferrell, James Caan
Will Ferrell tones down the crudity for this family-friendly tale that’s quickly become a Christmas favourite. He’s Buddy, an elf who has grown up to become, well, rather buddy big. Actually, he isn’t an elf, of course, but he was raised by them, so the elven life is all that Buddy knows. Still, gripped by ancestral urges, Buddy heads to NYC to find his dad – a guy whose name is a Santa’s naughty list staple… Don’t forget the spaghetti with maple syrup to make the experience complete – it can actually be surprisingly non-yucky.
