Elf Audience Reviews

Hellen I like the storyline of this show,it attract me so much
Platicsco Good story, Not enough for a whole film
XoWizIama Excellent adaptation.
Curapedi I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.
mcancea Will Farrell as buddy the elf Its a great movie and this is the move that broke through will Farrell ita not a typical Farrell movie. It's a good movie the dad was good ay being a naughty lost person. The girl friends was good too. The friend wascgpod too. This is a fun time to just have a great movies a said iys a serous movie too not just a comedy this is a 10/10 for me if you dont like it you hate Christmas or hate movies.
TownRootGuy This needs to be in your Christmas watch list. It has wonderful nods to classics, some FX, a feral raccoon, a squirrelly Ferrell, outstanding eye candy, delightful tunes AND Bob Newhart - that means great comedy, btw. If this show doesn't make you laugh, you need a stickectomy. And if you don't know where to find said stick, just ask someone. Everybody around you surely knows where it's lodged. This is watchable every year. You will laugh every time you see it or Carol Kane will jingle your bells with her foot.
talia_rocky This movie has changed my life in the most awesomest of ways. It has shown me that tall people are not a threat to the environment and cannot unintentionally harm anyone. Speaking from a hooman bean who is 5"2, tall peeps can sometimes appear spooky but this movie has expressed to me in the most delightful of ways that when it is Christmas, everyone is welcome. And pancakes with everything on them are amazing. That is all. Goodnight, farewell. :)
Pepijn Aarssen I can relate it when someone doesn't rely on a macho attitude.. It's how I want to be too.. I can't be serious.. I must be crazy.. Or else I panic.. Instead of healthy socializing.. I choose crazy.. Crazy is always the right way.. I never get too close to people.. Because when you get too close.. They start influencing you right or wrong.. I hate the idea I have no control over myself.. I must always be in control of my own actions and thoughts.. Therefor, I choose crazy over social.. If that means doing my own thing whether it's walking around in an elf suit, but with a healthy clean conscious, so it be.. If a woman doesn't want me because I'm not macho enough, then I guess I've outgrown them.. And macho is not what I'm in for.. Too bad.. If that even means staying alone, I will.. Because there's no greater joy than that of a peaceful mind..
