With dreams of being an inventor, opportunist and eccentric elf Bernard D. Elf (Martin Freeman) is made to feel like a a fool yet again when his innovative creation to bring back people's favorite Christmas memories back to life fails miserably. However, he is then presented with the perfect opportunity to prove his worth, when Santa (Tim Conway) is kidnapped by the evil Neville Baddington (Tim Curry), and his demanding mother Vera (Dame Joan Collins), who have their heart set on discovering Santa's big secret: how he delivers presents across the world in just one night. However, Bernard knows how he does it, using a time travelling device to ensure all children wake up on Christmas morning with their presents under the tree. The elf decides to use this to his advantage, as he plans on going back in time and preventing the abduction from ever happening, and save Santa, and Christmas, for the entire world.Written by
Throughout this movie, you will find all of the twelve days of Christmas, these include images of the drummers drumming on the side of the wagon, murals on the wall in the pancake palace, and the music in the elevator. See more »
The kids love it and that is the target. I don't like Christmas movies much but this one has a story line out of the normal Christmas sap! Plus the kids love it! SO as long as they don't learn some gory lesson and learn a sweat lesson I am all for it. They are the ones who count anyway. My grandchildren are 9 and 6 and they can not get enough of this movie! The grandson gets the biggest kick out of watching the elf. He loves him! The granddaughter just enjoys the whole movie. So if they like it I am all for it. The animation looks pretty good to me and even though it might not be as sharp as the other kids movie producers out there I think they have a hit here.
