In this beloved comedy from director Jon Favreau (Iron Man), a small orphan baby crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is carried off to the North Pole. Named Buddy (Will Ferrell) and raised by Papa Elf (Bob Newhart), it soon becomes clear that he doesn’t fit in as he is much bigger than the other elves. Determined to find a place where he belongs, Buddy sets out to find his real dad—in New York City! Buddy discovers that the big city is no place for an elf and his dad (James Caan) is on the Naughty list. But most importantly, he finds that the world is seriously lacking in Christmas spirit. So with the help of a beautiful department store elf (Zooey Deschanel), Buddy tries to teach his dad and the world the true meaning of Christmas spirit and to prove to everyone that Santa (Ed Asner) really exists.
