Our Favorite Christmas Movies: Elf Edition

December 23, 2016

Hi Everyone!

We're doing a mini-series this month on our favorite Christmas movies. Join us!

This week, we're talking Elf, starring Will Ferrell. It's a heartwarming, awkward story about family. According to imdb.com, "After inadvertently wreaking havoc on the elf community due to his ungainly size, a man raised as an elf at the North Pole is sent to the U.S. in search of his true identity."

After taking an unofficial poll around ACS, we discovered that fully 25% of us say Elf is their favorite Christmas movie, with only Alexis and Caleb truly disliking it. Of those who say it's their favorite:

Angie: There are so many great quotable lines, "Don't be a cotton headed ninny muggins." "Does somebody need a hug?"

"I love you, I love you, I LLLOOOVVVEEE you!"

"I'm sorry I ruined your lives and crammed 11 cookies in the VCR."

But the thing that always gets my kids and I laughing is the scene where Buddy finds and chews all the gum left under the railing by the subway entrance.  A 1st grader on my kids little league team did the same thing in the dug out.  Funny memory.  (Glad it wasn't my kid!)

Jessee: "I'm a cotton-headed ninny muggins."
