This holiday, discover your inner elf.

Buddy (Will Ferrell) is accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler, raised by Papa Elf (Bob Newhart), and mentored by Santa (Ed Asner). Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father, Walter Hobbs (James Caan). Cynical businessman Walter reluctantly attempts a relationship with childlike Buddy that brings both chaos and compassion. “Families have discovered how funny and how well this little film tells its king-sized holiday message: the only size that counts is how big your heart is.” --Joel Siegel
