Blogmas day 4 | Elf review

Hello lovelies,
Today I'm going to be doing a film review, now I know in the past my film reviews have been...well they've been a bit crap to put it politely. I'm not promising a top notch review but I'm going to try and put a little bit more effort into this one. 


Today I'm reviewing the brilliant Christmas movie, Elf. This film stars Will Ferrell who I thing is a brilliant comedy actor and I love most of his films. I will admit that until about three years ago, I hadn't watched it. The minute I did I was hooked and its become a firm favourite for my Christmas movie list. 

Here's what its says online about Elf "Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa's elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.".

I really enjoyed the plot line to this film for two reasons, the first being that Buddy only has a feeling that he's not actually an elf when he's surrounded by elves, even though he's a good six foot tall. Also because its about finding out who he really is and where he belongs.  I love how basically Buddy is all of us. We all act like excited children around Christmas but we have to control ourselves a bit, Buddy is basically who we would be if we weren't restricted. I know that I would be that excitable about Christmas and I liked seeing how the relationship between Buddy and his real dad developed. 


My favourite part of the film has to be when Buddy is working at the toy store. He's told Santa is coming into the store to see the children and when he See's him, I love the reaction. It goes a little something like "You sit on a throne of lies". I found that so funny because Buddy doesn't realise that to the children, that's the real Santa and he's basically upset all those kids. I find it funny because Buddy goes round trying to make everyone happy and he just keeps on annoying everyone.

To be honest I can't really think of anything else to say about the film, i know that's bad but I'm terrible at film reviews so I don't feel to bad. Oh well, I dope you liked that failed attempt at a review. Ill be back next week reviewing my all time favourite film, the Grinch. 

Lots of love,
