    Synopsis


    Fred Claus
    Santa's black-sheep brother gets a much-needed shot at redemption in this holiday comedy reuniting actor Vince Vaughn and director David Dobkin (Clay Pigeons, Wedding Crashers). It's not easy being the brother of a benevolent and beloved saint, and no one knows that better than Fred Claus (Vaughn). After struggling for years to live up to the example set by his younger sibling Nicholas (Paul Giamatti), Fred has finally given up. These days Fred is working as a repo man taken to stealing the items he repossesses, and his shady tactics have just landed him in jail. While Mrs. Claus vehemently insists that Fred fend for himself, Nicholas refuses to sit idly by as his brother rots in jail and agrees to set bail if Fred will repay the debt by coming to the North Pole and help make toys for the upcoming Christmas season. But Fred isn't nearly as productive as your average elf, and he's got quite an attitude to boot. With Christmas fast approaching and Fred threatening to sideline Nicholas' entire finely tuned operation, the brother that always struggled to get out from under his sibling's substantial shadow finds out just how far the patience of a saint can be pushed before jolly old Santa reaches his breaking point. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Elf
    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. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

      I purchased this movie combo for a stocking stuffer for my son and the whole family ranging from toddlers to grandparents have enjoyed watching the movies together. The reason only 4 stars is because the disc package arrived broken so the disc was loose in the case but the DVDs still played with no problems so far. They just don't store in the case as well.

      My grandaughter wanted Elf as a Christmas gift. I found the DVD at Best Buy packaged with another movie along the same lines. She was thrilled about having her own copy to keep in her room and watch when she wanted. They were reasonably priced, too. Thank you... I can always count on Best Buy having what I need.

      I couldn't believe I didn't have Elf in my DVD collection. When I saw it with Fred Claus it was a must buy. Elf is a Christmas classic. Fred Claus is not quite on a classic level but worth watching.

      Elf/Fred Clause, Will Ferrel or Vince Vaughn two hilarious movies. Innocent, funny and some crude humor, may be what the holiday or a long trip a family could be asking for.

      Elf is the best. Fred Claus is good but no holiday film beats Elf. Unless it's Nightmare Before Christmas, but it's not fair comparing anything to that classic!

      My kids watched these movies when they were young. Now in college and we call them "classics". Must have movies for the family movie "library".

      Great price for two movies. Bought only because my kids love this movie and wore our previous copy out.
