Movie Info

"Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas" combines the humor and spirit of both the beloved 2003 holiday film, which drew glowing reviews and earned $173 million at the domestic box office, and the hit Broadway production. The special is an all-new retelling of Buddy's delightfully absurd yet heartwarming story and blends the look and feel of the stop-motion animated Christmas specials of the past with the sharp sensibility of the modern-day classic holiday film. -- (C) NBC

Critic Reviews for Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (7)

It's new, and even modern, but it has the warm heart and stop-motion style of holiday specials past.

Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas suits the genre well, and suggests there is an alternative to simply running the sprockets off old holiday perennials.

The story is sweet, and the special is still a good choice for family viewing.

As holiday newcomers go, this is much better than socks and underwear from Grandma. Just don't expect a shiny new train set.

Every little once in a while, a television special reminds us that the Christmas spirit can make the impossible come true. In Elf, for example, the goofiest guy on the planet gets kissed by a beautiful blond. Now that's what I'm talking about.

Clever enough for adults, sweet enough for young kids and musically inventive enough to please the worst Scrooge.
