Elf (2003)

Will Ferrell stars as Buddy the elf. He was raised by elves at the north pole, but upon discovering that he’s a human, he embarks on a journey to New York to find his real father.

James Caan plays his unsuspecting father and Zooey Deschanel is a retail worker/love interest.

Will Ferrell is lovable and goofy as Buddy. His deer-in-the-headlights, dopey innocence adds extra punch to the jokes.

In addition to the laughs, the movie also has a big heart and by the end you have a warm, fuzzy feeling. This is definitely required viewing for the Christmas season.
