We had some rough weather on our latest Thanksgiving camping trip so we spent an entire day watching movies and playing games. With five people and two dogs stuck inside a trailer, a new holiday movie was exactly what we needed to lift everyone’s spirits and most importantly, be good enough to hold the attention of the entire family!
Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas from Warner Brothers is a claymation movie which in my opinion makes it a front runner to become a family holiday classic. It’s based on the popular Elf movie and the musical.
Buddy is a bit of a goof ball and a screw up and I think that’s exactly the kind of star we need! It’s important to teach our kids that no one is perfect and even the seemingly screwy can be successful if they are determined!
Buddy learns the harsh truth about his real roots this Christmas and sets out to find his roots in New York City. Unfortunately, his dream of a perfect reunion with his dad isn’t to be. But he has a spectacular journey and learns lots of lessons along the way. More importantly, he teaches them to those that need a little reminder of the true meaning of Christmas!
I loved Buddy’s quirky character. He had me laughing out loud along with the rest of the family. The rest of the cast was incredible. I especially loved the appearance of Jay Leno! Of course there had to be bad guys, good guys, and friendships made.
This movie is heartwarming and entertaining and I knew Elf was a hit when my kids asked to watch it again back to back!
If you are looking for a new family holiday movie, Elf is great for people of all ages. You will laugh with Buddy, maybe a little at him, and cheer him on in his Christmas endeavors.
Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas tells the story of Buddy the elf, and his quest to reunite with the human father he never knew existed. While Buddy’s sincerity and idealism are commonplace at the North Pole, these attributes are rejected in cynical New York City. But through song, dance, and relentless good cheer, Buddy rekindles the spirit of Christmas for the entire city.
