Movie Review: Elf (2003)

Merry Christmas! As you can see from my header there will be two movies reviewed this week and this is the first one, Elf. We pretty much watch this every year, and it really is hilarious!

Elf (2003):

A baby crawls into Santa's bag at an orphanage, when he sets it down. Back at the North Pole, they call him Buddy, and they rear him there. About thirty years later, Buddy is having some trouble keeping up the other elves so "Papa Elf" tells him that his father lives in a magical place called New York City. Buddy sets off to New York City to be with his dad. He gets in all kind of places and even falls in love.

Genre: Christmas, Comedy, Romance.
Costumes: 8, Well of course there is the one on the cover, but I also like this one of Jovie's.
Sorry, terrible picture.
"I like your costume."
"Oh, it's not a costume I work at the North Pole."
Script: 8, does have a few bad words. "No, it's the worlds best cup of coffee!"
Directed by: Jon Favereau
Produced by: 
Jon Berg
Todd Komarnicki
Shauna Robertson
Written by: David Berenbaum
Will Ferrell as Buddy the Elf, Buddy is absolutely gullible, so it makes him really funny.
Sorry, just had to put this.
James Caan as Walter Hobbs, has a few problems, but is okay, it's part of the story.
Zooey Deschanel as Jovie

Mary Steenburgen as Emily Hobbs
Daniel Tay as Michael Hobbs

Edward Asner as Santa
Bob Newhart as Papa Elf/The Narrator

Music: 8, "The best way to spread Christmas cheer, is singing loud for all to hear."
Music by: John Debney
Quotes: 10,
"Buddy, do you like sugar?"
"Does maple syrup have sugar?"
"Then YES!"
Storyline: 6, okay, there are a few parts that are, eh. Like where Buddy came from. And there are two instances that people aren't wearing anything, but you don't see them.
"Lose the tights as soon as possible."
"As soon as possible?"
"As soon as possible."
Overall: 8!

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you had a Merry Christmas!!!
