Wilbur the pig is scared of the end of the season, because he knows that come that time, he will end up on the dinner table. He hatches a plan with Charlotte, a spider that lives in his pen, to ensure that this will never happen.
Molly Mahoney is the awkward and insecure manager of Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, the strangest, most fantastic, most wonderful toy store in the world. But when Mr. Magorium, the 243 year-old eccentric who owns the store, bequeaths the store to her, a dark and ominous change begins to take over the once remarkable Emporium.
Buddy was a baby in an orphanage who stowed away in Santa's sack and ended up at the North Pole. Later, as an adult human who happened to be raised by elves, Santa allows him to go to New York City to find his birth father, Walter Hobbs. Hobbs, on Santa's naughty list for being a heartless jerk, had no idea that Buddy was even born. Buddy, meanwhile, experiences the delights of New York City (and human culture) as only an elf can. When Walter's relationship with Buddy interferes with his job, he is forced to reevaluate his priorities. Written by

Buddy's date with Jovie takes place during the night. In the next scene in Walter's office, it is obviously day; however, Buddy is still wearing the same clothes from the date. See more »

Elf was not as good as I hoped. Rather than loving Buddy, I was a bit annoyed by him. Zooey Dechanel was radiant as usual and showed that she can sing. James Caan is the same character he always is. Bob Newhart was great and adorable. Will Ferell may have pushed it a bit far and not in that good way he usually does...Elf has the same holiday movie morals and all that crap about believinng in Santa, except The Santa Clause was better, it also had some laughs and it's worth it, if you sneak in to the theater...
