Elf » The Colonial Theatre


“In this wan Christmas concoction, lumbering human Buddy (Will Ferrell) leaves the elfin toy-making community that raised him and heads south to find his Hobbesian father Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a mercenary children’s-book publisher who (as Santa notes) is firmly on the naughty list. In the tradition of Midnight Cowboy and Splash, Buddy’s naivete gets a Manhattan workout: He rhapsodizes over a greasy spoon advertising the “world’s best coffee,” delights in revolving doors, and mimics his former employment by working as an elf in a department store, where he gets canned for pointing out that the bogus Saint Nick sits on a “throne of lies.” (Ed Park, The Village Voice)
