"Like the Will Ferrell vehicle on which it is based, Elf is a stupid show built on a stupid premise: A North Pole misfit, the tall and gangly Buddy discovers he's not really an elf, so he heads to New York City to find his human father, whereupon he saves Christmas by restoring the cynical city folks' faith in Santa. Whatever. In Ferrell's comically deft man-child hands, the 2003 film managed to rise above its one-joke material. Without Ferrell, not so much." (Goldy)
