Elf is an enduring cultural phenomenon that continues to elicit belly laughs, smiles and tears from generations of fans. Will Ferrell’s antics as the naive, endearing Buddy the Elf, are both charming and ridiculous.

A classic Christmas movie is a classic because it transcends time. The original Miracle on 34th Street retains its charm and relevancy by getting to the heart of what Christmas is all about. Balancing commercial cynicism with the power of joy and faith, it captures the right of passage we all go through when we decide whether or not to believe in Santa. This film makes its case for both, leaving you to decide whether or not YOU believe. There is no question that we do!
