Elf ★★★½

What would my Buddy the Elf Challenge be without watching this? And my boyfriend had never seen it, so we took the time to watch it together this free afternoon. The whole family actually, but it ended up being just me towards the end....

Anyhow. It's a good thing it's funny, because there's way to much Christmas going on for me to feel comfortable. But at the same time this film makes fun of the senselessness surrounding the Christmas stories, just as it's trying to soften up people like me; Christmas haters. And it does a pretty good job at that. At least I can tolerate everything right up until the the singing in the end, and it's just hilarious from time to time. Much better than I remember it being actually. Maybe it's a mood thing?
