#60: Elf

December 20, 2009

So what’s it about?: A man raised by elves goes to New York to find his real father… who’s on the naughty list *gasp!*.  Some holiday chaos ensues.

The Good: Well frankly this is the greatest Christmas movie of the decade hands down.  It’s funny, it’s got a great story, Will Ferrell is freaking hilarious, Zooey Deschanel is awesome as always (and blonde!), and it’s fun for the whole family.  Plus it’ll put even the Grinchiest Scrooge into the holiday spirit!

The Bad: What is bad about this film?  The fact that if you don’t have TiVo you have to sit through commercials.  Well, and the fact that it’s pretty much pure Christmas fluff.

The Verdict: While it may not be the greatest Christmas movie of all time (that honor goes to It’s a Wonderful Life) it’s definitely in the top 10.  So grab the family, and pop this one onto your TV this holiday season.
