Buddy (Will Ferrell) is different from all of Santa’s other elves. For one thing, he’s “a cotton-headed ninny muggins” when it comes to making toys. For another, he’s 6’ 3”. And the real clincher: he’s human! So one special December, Buddy sets off on a holiday adventure to New York City in search of his real dad. The story of how Buddy finds his father (James Caan) and the meaning of Christmas is a joyous, jaunty, 21st Century holiday classic.
