Dec. 14: Elf (2003)

What makes it Christmassy

Duh, there’s a Santa and a bunch of elves.

Chore Watching Index: 4/10

Zooey Deshanel is so dry, you’ll want to wash it down with some fresh eggnog (with Southern Comfort).

Standout Performances

Will Ferrel, obviously, but also Peter Dinklage stands up for himself. Bob Newhart is perfectly at home in this piece, as is Ed Asner as Santa.


Playful idiocy


Jon Favreau directed this??
