The first 2/3s had some very funny moments. The last 1/3 was lame. Good film for kids, but don\'t shell out big bucks for adults.

\"Elf\" is a film that is better than expected. A few months back, I saw a trailor for the film and I came away with the notion that it was a big dumb movie. My first rule of though is never judge a movie by its trailor. I saw the whoile movie and it was one of the funniest movies this year. Will Ferrill, who was in the terrible \"Old School,\" redeemed himself as a man who went to the north pole as an infant. Later, when he learned that he\'s not an elf, a journeyed to New York City to find his real dad. James Caan in a rare comic performance plays a book editor who doesn\'t have time for his famiuly until Elf shows up. The film was written funny even if the title character is dumb-down. Elf and reindeer jokes are funny. Matter of fact, not only is this film\'s funny but is touching as well. \"Elf\" made my day.

The kids (11 & 7) really liked this movie. Fact is the seven year old thought it was the best movie she ever saw (non-animated of course)! I thought it was ....cute would be the best way to discribe it. It's a nice, feel good Christmas type movie.

Elf was a great movie with lots of laughs and would be enjoyed by the whole family. The trailor to the movie makes you think that it would be just another one of those ridiculosly stupid movies that are so dumb they make you laugh.

Elf though is different it is funny without being overly dorkish. A great Christmastime movie that your whole family will love to see.

I understand that some people may love this movie and have grown up watching it. I liked the storyline, but a lot of the humor made me cringe. I would suggest this to people with younger children, but it's not a movie for me.
