#LoveElf

“Elf” tells the story of Buddy, a human raised as an elf who reunites with his biological father. Will Ferrell’s natural exuberance gives the role a charm and innocence that would have been cloying with a less talented comedian.

"You’ll shoot your eye out!”

"A Christmas Story," (or "Ralphie," as it's commonly known) adapted from Jean Shepherd’s humorous stories, tells the story of Ralph Parker—an imaginative kid obsessed with getting an Official Red Ryder Carbide-Action 200-shot range model air rifle while surviving “the jungles of kiddom.” It’s easily the funniest holiday film of all time, and here's a fun fact for you: Shepherd is also the narrator!
