Christmarathon Day 4: Elf

This movie wasn't funny.

I understand that it was about a human who was raised by Elves in the North Pole, but why did that make him retarded? All of the other people we see at the North Pole seemed fairly intelligent. What makes Buddy different? This movie should be called Retarded Elf. That wouldn't make it any funnier, but at least it would explain things a bit better.

Anyway, I saw this in the theater and was underwhelmed, and my opinion hasn't changed after rewatching it. If you love Will Ferrell (I merely like Will Ferrell), you'll love this since it's exactly like every movie he's in. But if you hate him (or just merely like him), it probably isn't going to impress. Rent Blades of Glory or Anchorman instead.

I still have yet to see this movie. I've only ever watched a few minutes at a time.

I like Will Ferrel okay. I don't love him so much that I'll watch anything he's in, though.
