Nearly two decades have passed, yet “Elf” featuring the ever-so-lovable elf named “Buddy” hasn’t aged a bit. This heart-warming Christmas movie has fixed its place among holiday season must-sees such as “A Christmas Story” or “It’s a Wonderful Life.” “Elf” is a movie about a grown man who was raised by North Pole elves, believing he too was an elf the whole time. Once he learns the truth, he embarks on a journey to New York City to meet his human family. Watch “Elf” just once, and you’ll fall in love with the adorably innocent and all-so-comical Buddy and his larger-than-life misadventures navigating the Big Apple.
