A modern classic - one of the funniest films I've ever seen,

This review is from: Elf [DVD]  (DVD)
Elf is not only heart-warming but hilarious at the same time. It has the ability to reach the inner child in all of us. How do you top that? It's also a Christmas film! Woohoo!
Will Ferrell is brilliant as Buddy the Elf. The film starts off quite unexpectedly in a sort of animated fairy tale land and progresses into "real life" in New York while Buddy searches for his Dad. Kids will love this. It's a modern day (well, 2003) equivalent of Santa Claus - The Movie [DVD] which I loved as a kid.
An absolute classic. Had to get it on DVD as I record it every year. The DVD actually has two discs, the other full of great fun extras for all the family. Settle down with some 'syrup' and relax for a couple of hours watching this.
"Santaaaaaaaaaaaaa! I know him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!". Classic.
