25 Days of Christmas Movies Day 22: The Best Way to Spread Christmas Cheer
LAST MOVIE WATCHED: Elf
TO WATCH OR NOT TO WATCH: This movie is absolutely hilarious. It's one of the few modern day (modern meaning almost ten years old now....whoa) Christmas classics out there. In fact, it may be the only one! It's top notch all the way around, but Will Ferrell must be given a lot of credit for the film's success by giving the performance that he gave. For an actor who definitely can err on the side of too much, his Buddy walked the perfect line of being funny without being obnoxious....and that made him endearing. The set design and direction of the film also stand out to me in giving the film the lighthearted touch that made it unforgettable. This is definitely one of my favorite Christmas movies, and I have been saving it for the last days of the season. It always puts a smile on my face and chances are it will put one on yours as well.
EMILY RATING: 9.5/10
