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

It is a lot of fun to watch. No one seems to run it until super late in the holiday season, so we finally bought it.
I'd never heard of "Infinifilm" before, so wasn't sure what to expect.
Basically, after you watch the movie in regular mode first, you can watch it afterwards in "Infinifilm" mode.
There are popup links on the bottom of the screen which can be clicked on, which take you into more detail about certain aspects of the movie itself. We've been trying out a few of them, and they are fun for movie buffs or anyone interested in the behind-the-scenes information.
The only thing that didn't make much sense about it was that we bought a brand new DVD, but the Infinifilm part refers to something being on "Disc 2". There was only ONE disc in the package. So, not sure what the scoop is on that one.
I believe this is a fun addition to everyone's holiday viewing movie collection. Good old fashioned holiday fun.
No worries about those who do not like the religious aspect - there is nothing mentioned in here on that one.
And the nice part about owning the movie is that you get to see the entire thing, instead of whatever scenes the tv stations have decided to show you. We have seen this movie several times on tv over the last few years, but with the DVD, we've seen quite a few smaller scenes that were never included in the tv versions. (And one of my favorite parts that we've used at our house is the big cola belch, followed by "did you hear that?" Haha!
Fun for the family, nothing dirty, no visible nudity, just holiday entertainment.
When it comes down to the nuts and bolts of it, the story is silly but what is not to like about a silly Christmas movie? It's lovable, funny and has great music.
A baby in an orphanage sneaks into Santa's bag, winding up at the North Pole. The diaper tag reads 'Little Buddy Diapers' so it is assumed by the elves that his name is Buddy. Adopted and raised by the hilariously deadpan Bob Newhart, Buddy becomes suspicious when it becomes clear that he isn't quite like all the other elves.
Off to New York he goes, to connect with his biological father. One problem...
Dad's on the NAUGHTY list!
Child-like and without malice of any sort, Will Farrell's Buddy reminds us of the beauty of innocence and kindness.
Well, perhaps not always beautiful, as a naive Buddy tries to hug a city hardened raccoon!
Or find common ground with 'an angry little elf'. That particular scene is so memorably funny that when faced with negative people, my sweetie and I look at each other and say in unison, "He's an ANGRY little elf!"
Christmas classic that is fun all year round. Cheers!
This is a movie for the whole family.
Borderline sacrilegious, Elf imagines a human being raised in Santa's workshop and then re-integrated into human socieity.
