Herald Sun - Hit - - COVER STORY -

Will Fer­rell gives im­pro­vi­sa­tion a good name. He riffs wildly in Zoolan­der, The Other Guys and, of course, Elf. This Christ­mas crack-up sees the man-child come up with all kinds of com­edy gold: “We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup” and

“I am a cot­ton-headed ninny-mug­gins!” The premise is sim­ple and ef­fec­tive (like his im­prov). Buddy (Fer­rell) is trans­ported to the North Pole as a wee bairn and raised to adult­hood among Santa’s elves. He just can’t shake the feel­ing that he doesn’t fit in, so the adult Buddy trav­els to New York, in full elf uni­form, in search of his real fa­ther. No spoil­ers. VISIT Barkly Square, McDougall St, Brunswick.
