Variety - 10/27/2003
"...A disarming holiday comedy....The sweet-natured outsider fantasy neither skimps on nor overplays its sentimentality..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/07/2003
"...ELF returns to the hip but warm-hearted spirit of SWINGERS....[With] sophisticated glee and a sense of innocent fun..."
New York Times - 11/07/2003
"...Mr. Favreau's direction has a relaxed, swinging rhythm..."
Entertainment Weekly - 11/14/2003
"...The disarming comedic tone -- silly and novel in its lack of cynicism -- is driven by the fearless, cheerful unself-consciousness of Will Ferrell..."
Rolling Stone - 11/27/2003
"...There's a devil of comedy in Ferrell, and he lets it out to play..."
Total Film - 12/01/2003
"...Ferrell and Favreau have engendered enough goodwill to allow for a finale that glows like winter coals. A gleeful, cracked fairytale..."
Sight and Sound - 12/31/2003
"Will Ferrell's man-child in tights is a surprisingly affecting figure."
Chicago Sun-Times - 11/07/2003
"This is one of those rare Christmas comedies that has a heart, a brain and a wicked sense of humor, and it charms the socks right off the mantelpiece."
