Elf (2003)


Buddy (Will Ferrell) has the right attitude towards Christmas. He feels that the best way to spread Christmas cheer is to sing carols aloud for all to hear. I’d have to agree. Most times when I break into a carol, those around look at me with wide eyes of joy and hold their hands in front of their mouths to test whether they know the words. Few join in because it seems to me that they don’t want to interrupt the sheer joy my vocals bring to those within earshot. But they do stand around and marvel at my willingness to share the joy of serenading others. Jovie (Zooey Deschanel) is skeptical about Buddy’s enthusiasm. If she heard me singing, she’d know.
