Comedian Will Ferrell is at his best in fish-out-of-water comedies, and Elf might be his best. At least it’s his most widely appealing. A good-natured and charming comedy about Buddy the Elf’s search for his biological family and the rejuvenating power of the Christmas spirit, Elf is poignant and family-friendly besides showcasing a hilarious and completely unrestrained performance from Ferrell. A great cast around him — Zooey Deschanel as his sweet love interest, Bob Newhart as his adoptive father, and dozens more — turns it into a classic for all ages. And if you haven’t seen it in a while, you’ll be surprised how many jokes you still remember.
Bring a donation of new, unworn socks to join in the audience-wide “sockball fight” during the film! Tampa Laundry Company is donating their services to wash and fold the socks, which will benefit community members in need this holiday season.
This screening of Elf is sponsored by Smith & Associates – The Etheredge Group.
