For his sophomore stab at directing, actor/writer/director Jon Favreau (Swingers, Made), took on this holiday comedy starring Saturday Night Live-alum Will Ferrell. Ferrell stars as Buddy, a regular-sized man who was raised as an elf by Santa Claus (Edward Asner). When the news is finally broken to Buddy that he's not a real elf, he decides to head back to his place of birth, New York City, in search of his biological family. Elf also stars James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Zooey Deschanel, and Bob Newhart.

Love this movie. Finally decided to buy it. Was somewhat disappointed that it did not include a booklet inside the DVD case. There's a place for one! I guess I'm too old school!
This review is from Elf: 10th Anniversary [Blu-ray/DVD] [SteelBook] 
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
Great Christmas movie
This movie provides me with more and more Christmas cheer every time I watch it. It's a heart-warming comedy that I am glad has existed so I can give it as high of a rating as I can. Will Ferrell is a great actor and he is really funny. I crack up every time he makes a joke in this movie. And the story is very unique. A man who thinks he is an elf since he was little, goes to New York to meet his adoptive family and spread Christmas spirit all around the city and the world when Santa doesn't have enough spirit to fly his sleigh himself. I can't believe this movie has been around for over 17 years now. For the past 15 years, I've watched this movie at least once each year. Gets better every time! Anyways, if you're looking for a good Christmas/Winter movie, don't watch Arctic Dogs and instead watch this movie. God bless us all!
A Must Christmas movie to own. It's fun and has laughs through out it. fun for the whole family. It's Will Ferrell as an Elf which makes for a fun filled movie. has all the extra you could want behind the scenes, deleted scenes and more. you could really watch this anytime of year it's that good of a movie. Physical is the way to go when watching movies.
This will make the perfect gift for any fan of the Christmas classic that is this movie. It's not only funny, but heartfelt and goes to show that director Jon Favreau was onto greater things in the future (directing Iron Man 1 and 2, acting throughout the MCU, and writing The Mandalorian for the Star Wars universe). This steelbook is very colorful and includes just the blu-ray of the movie, no DVD or digital copy included. Highly recommended.
This is a great movie with tons of laughs and humor. It is a great movie for the Christmas season. A story about a human raised by elves and searching for his real dad in NY city. The steel book edition is pretty good. It is sturdy and a great edition to those who love collecting them. Fun and entertaining for the whole family. A must have for the Christmas movie collection.
