Elf

ENCORE | 12:00 am

Surprisingly sweeter than you might expect from the premise and the casting, this 2003 comedy stars Will Ferrell as Buddy, a human who was adopted by elves as an infant and grows up thinking he's just a large version of his adoptive father (Bob Newhart). When Buddy finds out the truth about his parentage, he is crushed and goes out into the real world to find his birth father (James Caan), who has his own family and isn't interested in rehashing the past.
