Simple Homemade Christmas Gifts 6- ELF

Hello and Welcome to another Movie Day on Daily Dose of Art!  Since we are talking about making gifts for Christmas, it seems fitting to include the film “ELF”, starring Will Ferrell. It’s all about gift-making, gift-giving, innocence and childlike cheer. It teaches us that the greatest present we can give is our kind and loving presence.
ELF is indeed what we can call a “classic Christmas film” because it’s one that both young and old can enjoy.

ELF Movie Info from Rotten Tomatoes

For his sophomore stab at directing, actor/writer/director Jon Favreau (Swingers, Made), took on this holiday comedy starring Saturday Night Live-alum Will Ferrell. Ferrell stars as Buddy, a regular-sized man who was raised as an elf by Santa Claus (Edward Asner). When the news is finally broken to Buddy that he’s not a real elf, he decides to head back to his place of birth, New York City, in search of his biological family. Elf also stars James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Zooey Deschanel, and Bob Newhart.

Buddy: I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.

Buddy: First we’ll make snow angels for two hours, then we’ll go ice skating, then we’ll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookie-dough as fast as we can, and then we’ll snuggle.

[on seeing a sign saying “World’s Best Cup of Coffee”]
Buddy: You did it! Congratulations! World’s best cup of coffee! Great job, everybody! It’s great to be here.

Buddy: I’m a cotton-headed ninny-muggins.

[reading the note he left on the etch-a-sketch]
Buddy:”I’m sorry I ruined your lives, and crammed eleven cookies into the VCR.”

Buddy: [to the doctor] Can I listen to your necklace?

Buddy: It’s just nice to meet another human that shares my affinity for elf culture.

Buddy: Francisco! That’s fun to say! Francisco. Frannncisco. Franciscooo.

[on the phone]
Buddy: Buddy the Elf! What’s your favorite color?

Buddy to Jovie:I think you’re really beautiful and I feel really warm when I’m around you and my tongue swells up.

Buddy to the fake Santa: You stink. You smell like beef and cheese! You don’t smell like Santa.

Buddy: Have you seen these toilets? They’re GINORMOUS!

Buddy: Watch out, the yellow ones don’t stop!

Buddy: The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.

[On seeing the mail room]
Buddy: It’s just like Santa’s workshop! Except it smells like mushrooms… and everyone looks like they wanna hurt me…

Buddy: We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.

Buddy: What about Santa’s cookies? I suppose parents eat those too?
