Best Review - Top 12 Will Ferrell Elf Quotes


ne of my favorite Christmas movies is Elf with Will Ferrell, James Caan, Ed Asner and Bob Newhart (Papa Elf). The movie came out in 2003 and is one that we watch just about every year when Christmas rolls around. Will Ferrell plays Buddy a man who grew up living at the North Pole after being taken in by one of Santa's elves and as a grown man discovers that he is not really an elf, but a man, so he sets out to find his real family in New York City.
The main cast is Will Ferrell (Buddy), James Caan (Walter, Buddy's real father), Bob Newhart (Papa Elf), Ed Asner (Santa). The movie was also directed by Jon Favreau.
