Fresh: As an original family film for the holidays, it's fresh, timely and quite funny.
- Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, Friday, November 7, 2003
Fresh: Elf might be the last modern Christmas classic we see for a long time.
- Christian Toto, What Would Toto Watch?, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: Sure, Elf feels a little too feel-good at the end, but what do you expect? It's a Christmas movie! Anything else would be the cinematic equivalent of finding coal in your stocking.
- Christy Lemire, Associated Press, Wednesday, December 4, 2013
ELF definitely appeared to be a Christmas classic for the new millenium. That disappeared when it chose to dramatically change from an enjoyable, fresh comedy, to sappy, preachy cheese. Despite this awful turn of events, Will Ferrell's funny performance, as well as a great soundtrack, make ELF (or at least the first half, anyway) a decent enough Christmas flick.
