    Description

    Raised as an oversized elf, Buddy travels from the North Pole to New York City to meet his biological father, Walter Hobbs, who doesn’t know he exists and is in desperate need of some Christmas spirit.

    Сast and Crew

    Production

    David Berenbaum initially wrote the script in 1993, with Chris Farley and Jim Carrey being early candidates to play Buddy. Berenbaum's screenplay underwent uncredited rewrites by Scot Armstrong, Chris Henchy, and the writing team of Adam McKay and Will Ferrell. Garry Shandling was offered the role of Walter Hobbs but declined. Wanda Sykes was originally cast as the Gimbels manager Wanda but later dropped out. According to Favreau, the script was initially "much darker" and did not interest him, although he was interested in working with Ferrell's first post-SNL movie. Asked to rewrite it, a turning point came when he realized he could make Buddy's world an homage to the Rankin/Bass Christmas specials. This allowed him to conceive of a movie that could be PG rated as opposed to the original script, which he guessed would have been rated PG-13.

    There’s a reason why it’s considered a classic of Christmas comedies. Even my dislike for Ferrell didn’t stop me from enjoying this naive, but working, sweet story about family and faith in the holidays. The jokes fit well with the characters. The plot was also harmonious, with a twist. Translated to English

    The inspired film with the Christmas spirit is wonderful for families to believe in miracles. Translated to English

    A typical "manboy" image for Will Farrell, which he uses in almost every film he makes. The humor is mainly based on Spanish shame. Sometimes it’s really funny, sometimes it’s naive and sweet. But overall the film didn’t do very well. But Peter Dinklage’s cameo is very cool. Translated to English

    I can’t believe it’s a 2003 movie. Looks really fresh! Stupid, I won’t argue. But I didn’t expect anything else. The credit for everything goes to Ferrell. He is amused here, and I am sure that without him the miracle would not have happened. Translated to English
