You would be hard-pressed to find a bad word to say about Will Ferrell’s lovable performance as the yellow-tights-clad Buddy.
Buddy – who is raised by Elves – energetically descends upon New York like a festive fish out of water in search of his real father, a straight-laced businessman played by the late, great James Caan.
Slapstick hilarity, wit and a charming quirkiness, make this an undeniable slice of imaginative comedy gold. Bumbling love, physical comedy and a endlessly quotable script (“Santa!!! I Know him!”) all combine to make this an gloriously entertaining sleigh-ride of silly!
