Will Ferrell (Wedding Crashers, Semi-Pro, Old School) stars as the ultimate fish out of water, Buddy, who as a baby crawls into Santa’s toy bag and is whisked off to the North Pole, where he is raised as an elf. A cheerful misfit who grows to be three times the size of his elf family, Buddy ultimately heads to his birthplace – New York City – to seek out his roots.
Unfortunately, they turn out to be a “Scrooge”-like father (James Caan) and a cynical eight-year-old half-brother who doesn’t believe in Santa. Worst of all, everyone seems to have forgotten the true meaning of Christmas. But, using his simple elf ways, Buddy sets out to single-handedly win over his family and save Christmas in New York, hoping to at last find his true place in the world.
Directed by John Favreau from an original script written by David Berenbaum, the film features a stellar supporting cast that includes Zooey Deschanel, Mary Steenburgen, Daniel Tay, with Edward Asner (as Santa Claus) and Bob Newhart (as Papa Elf).
