It is a great movie for people who enjoy watching movies. There is some potty humour, not good for really little kids. I love watching it every year.

A great Christmas movie that can be enjoyed any time of the year. All the actors have great chemistry together. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone wanting to see some good hearted humor. I don't know why but I absolutely love this movie. Guaranteed not to disappoint, you will laugh through this entire movie!

A Christmas classic that is funny for kids *and* adults. Buddy the Elf travels to New York City after growing up with Santa, and is surprised and disturbed by the culture. The whole cast has fun with their parts and no one phones it in. Music fans may also appreciate a charming duet by Leon Redbone and lead actress Zooey Deschanel on "Baby It's Cold Outside." This movie has forever ingrained in me an urgent (and thankfully suppressed) desire to ask patrons their favourite colour when I answer the phone around Christmas.

Elf: It's okay, Buddy. Just how many Etch-A-Sketches did you make?
Buddy: I made... 85.
Elf: 85. Well, that puts you... 915 off the pace.
Buddy: Why don't you just say it? I'm the worst toy-maker in the world. I'm a Cotton-Headed Ninnymuggins!

Leon the Snowman: Why the long face, Buddy?
Buddy: It seems I'm not an elf.
Leon the Snowman: Of course you're not an elf. You're six-foot-three and had a beard since you were fifteen.

Other: My daughters are appalled by the belching scene and one even leaves the room -- my son, on the other hand, thinks the belching is hilarious, maybe even a goal for which to strive...
