Elf

Mon­day, win, 8pm, G (2003)

“I just like to smile! Smil­ing’s my favourite,” chimes the wideeyed, sub­limely hi­lar­i­ous, in­stantly en­dear­ing Will Fer­rell (pic­tured) in this joy­ous Christ­mas treat. He plays a sup­posed “elf” (in re­al­ity he is a hu­man or­phan raised as one of Santa’s helpers) who jets off to New York to seek out his bi­o­log­i­cal dad (James Caan). There, the awk­ward, un­gainly pro­por­tioned elf finds em­ploy­ment at a depart­ment store, where he be­friends a sweet co-worker (Zooey Deschanel). Won­der­fully di­rected by Jon Favreau

(Iron Man), this lit­tle charmer proves good things come in small pack­ages.
