Elf (2003)

1h 37m / PG / Comedy

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.

DONATE TO OUR DIAPER DRIVE!

Tampa Theatre is partnering with the Junior League of Tampa this holiday season to help the one in three families in the United States who struggle to provide their babies with clean, dry diapers. Guests attending Holiday Classics film screenings are invited to bring in disposable diapers of any type, size or brand, wipes and diaper cream, or help by purchasing items off of the Junior League of Tampa’s Amazon Wishlist.

Opened packages of disposable diapers are acceptable; however, please place them in a plastic zip-top bag, and label them with the size. Many of those in need use public laundry facilities, which do not permit washing cloth diapers for hygiene reasons. Accordingly, this is a disposable diaper collection only. We cannot accept cloth diapers, nor can we accept opened formula or other baby necessities, to ensure the health and safety of our participating families.

The Holiday Classics series is presented by Bank of America, with promotional support from Tampa Bay METRO Magazine and WEDU PBS
