The Best Holiday Movies
'Tis the season to get in the holiday spirit with a movie marathon! Whether you're looking for a tried-and-true classic or a twisted Christmas tale, we've got the film for you.
Will Ferrell's enthusiasm is contagious—no matter the role—so his ability to spread holiday cheer to even the most skeptical scrooge is no surprise. In Elf, Ferrell plays Buddy, a human living as one of Santa's helpers. He landed on the North Pole as a boy after getting whisked away in Santa's sack, but as he continues to grow in a land of perpetual children, he starts to literally stand out. So Buddy leaves Santa's mystical home for a much scarier place: New York City. His exploits in the Big Apple—falling in love with a department store elf, turning his half-brother into a believer, seeking the approval of his Grinch of a father—are saturated with silliness and are the perfect vehicle for Ferrell to do what he does best: make his audience, young and old, feel like kids on Christmas.
