Everything you need to know about where to watch Elf in 2022

Unwrapping the Plot

Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally taken to the North Pole as a baby after sneaking onto Santa’s sleigh. Raised to adulthood amongst Santa’s elves, Buddy is unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in.

As an adult, he travels to New York in search of his real father (In full elf uniform of course) and soon discovers that his biological father is cynical businessman, Walter Hobbs (James Caan).

After a DNA test proves their blood relation, Walter reluctantly begins a relationship with the childlike Buddy as chaos increasingly ensues.

Santa’s Helper Delivers Laughs And Love

I believe I speak for many when I say that Elf is just an all-time great Christmas movie as it delivers on so many themes while never losing its comedic touch.

There are parts of Elf that perfectly capture the childlike joy and innocence of Christmas with the holiday feelings only enhanced by the movie setting so much of its runtime in New York City (I mean, who doesn’t love Christmas in the Big Apple? Because Hollywood sure loves it…)

But the movie isn’t just all about the spirit and traditions of Christmas and the holidays as it also features some unexpected romance. With the budding relationship between Buddy and Jovie (Zooey Deschanel) throughout the movie being equal parts wholesome and adorably affectionate.

However, the film still remains a comedy, and is filled with laughs from start to finish, with the comedic timing of comedy great, Ferrell, shining through in his performance as Buddy, especially in his scenes opposite legendary screen actor, Caan, which are genuinely great throughout most of the film.

Oh, and it also stars Peter Dinklage. Information I include here to serve no other purpose than to feed the Game of Thrones fan inside of me who still yearns for a better final season…No, we fans still aren’t over it.
