ELF


2003

CANDLES 4

DIRECTOR: Jon Favreau

NOT A PART OF OUR COLLECTION

May Contain Spoilers!

Will we be adding this to our collection? NO

It was last Christmas Eve and not a creature was stirring, we sat down to wrap the last of the presents, whilst the kids were in bed and we watched this. Christmas might as well have been cancelled! I can’t tell you how much of a disappointment this film was to me. I’m so-so with Will Farrell, but I am coming around to him, but this was a poor film from start to finish.

Ferrell is a human boy who was brought up by elves and as an Elf, though he never really fitted it. He returns to earth to find his real father, who happen’s to be James Caan. The comedy was barely possible and just outright stupid at times. Is this aimed at a child audience or not? It doesn’t seem to be quite sure.

Simply put, if you’re looking for a good Christmas movie, look at It’s A Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol, or even Santa Claus: The Movie! But if you’re looking for a film with any elf-respect, then look else where…
