Elf

Elf

My son Ben, right now, is busily studying for exams (I hope) so I need to step in for him.  I know two things about this selection: (1) he loves it; and (2) it is, shall we say, not a film that was particularly liked by critics but nevertheless gets me to belly laugh every time I see it, especially if I see it with Ben.  For those of you who need a broader description, Elf  is the story of how Will Farrell, who plays an elf that looks and acts nothing like the rest of his fellow elves, ventures out into “the real world” to discover himself.  Anyone who does not laugh out loud at this movie needs to lighten up a bit!
