Elf, an instant classic.

This is the best Christmas movie you will ever see I absolutely adored it! A instant funny classic for the whole family to enjoy. The only thing is minor ( And i mean minor.) swearing just something little kiddies should know isn't polite. But awesome movie overall

Why Elf Is Great

'Elf' is a great movie for almost everybody. It does have some language, but not too much. And they aren't THAT bad. It has some vioelnce in it, but some children may find that funny or amusing. I think Buddy the Elf is a good role model because he's peppy and has a positive attitude. Usually after kids see a movie, they like to act like themain characterl if good things happened to them. So.. Buddy would be a good role model except for some of the language he used.

Hilarious!

Elf is one of my favorite movies. I would recomend it for kids 7 and up. It is very hilarious! Some parts some kids won't understand. But for the most part it is a good movie

GREAT. They do say "p-ssed" "d-mn" and "h-ll" but that's all. For sex the girl is shown in the shower, drinking, Buddy gets drunk. FAMILY MOVIE THOUGH.

Family Type, Funny, Awesome!!!

Elf was funny, cute, sweet, and just good. I loved Elf, my younger siblings did, too. It has a few mild cuss words, and one scene where they smoke and Buddy and another man get drunk. I think it is a great children film, and adults will enjoy it too!
