Will Ferrell stars as Buddy, an elf who is, well, different from the other elves. When Papa Elf (Bob Newhart) informs Buddy that he was adopted, he sets out to find his real father (James Caan). This surprise hit comedy has become a modern Christmas classic, thanks to Ferrell's endearing performance as Buddy, whose childlike Christmas spirit softens the most cynical of hearts. ("Santa, HERE? I know him, I know him!")
Directed by Jon Favreau; Starring Will Ferrell, James Caan, Bob Newhart, Edward Asner, Mary Steenburgen, Zooey Deschanel, Daniel Tay, Faizon Love.
