His Father is a cold hearted businessman named Walter who has been on Santa's naughty list for quite some time. But Buddy refuses to see him as a bad person, Walter is Buddy's Father and he is determined to get through to him. But Walter thinks Buddy is crazy, not because he thinks he's his son, he believes that, finally. But that Buddy think's he's a Christmas elf.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

A beautiful blending of Fantasy, Comedy and Dramatic elements. The cast is just great, I admit I never watched Will Ferrell on SNL, but I do like him as a movie actor. Elf is one of the best Christmas movies of the 21st Century and I would highly recommend it and I give it...9 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd on this, I went to see it in the theater in a sneak peek and I was plesently surprised on how good it is. I think some of the comedy did get a little over the top and a tad predictable. But I still enjoyed allot. I also give it 9 STARS
