Elf is genuinely good. Not just Saturday Night Live-movie good, when the movie has some funny bits but is basically an insult to humanity; Elf is a smartly written, skillfully directed, and deftly acted story of a human being adopted by Christmas elves who returns to the human world to find his father. And because the writing, directing, and acting are all genuinely good, Elf is also genuinely funny. Will Ferrell, as Buddy the adopted elf, is hysterically sincere. James Caan, as his rediscovered father, executes his surly dumbfoundedness with perfect aplomb. Zooey Deschanel, as a department store worker with whom Buddy falls in love, is adorably sardonic. Director Jon Favreau (Swingers) shepherds the movie through all the obligatory Christmas cliches and focuses on material that's sometimes subtle and consistently surprising. Frankly, Elf feels miraculous. Also featuring Mary Steenburgen, Bob Newhart, Peter Dinklage, and Ed Asner as Santa Claus. --Bret Fetzer

|What do you feel is the worst Christmas song/recording ever?||
"Grandma Got Run Over ..." It's merely annoying and stupid the first time. By the millionth time -- and we're all *way* past that, aren't we? -- you want to puncture your eardrums with an ice pick.
And for all of the families who lose grandmothers around Christmas time -- what a...

I can't fingure out how to get closed captioning either, in English. Just spend one hour, three family techies, and cannot find the option on the dvd menu. Looked for it on both disks. Nothing.
Amazon, can you please look into this, as it was quite the disapointing gift for a hearing... Read More
