'Elf' Voted Best Family Christmas Movie Of All Time

'Elf' Voted Best Family Christmas Movie Of All Time

With less than two weeks until the festive day rolls around, many families will be gearing up to watch a wholesome Christmas film to keep everyone entertained.

It's an incredibly heated debate around what movie tops the list as being the best for Christmas time. Some reckon the oldies are the finest, whereas others are adamant that the new ones put a more modern spin on the holiday season.

Well that debate appears to be over with Elf, starring Will Ferrell, voted the best family Christmas film.


Ranker has put the 2003 comedy at the top of the list, followed by Home Alone, The Polar Express, The Nightmare Before Christmas with The Santa Clause coming in fifth.

Obviously being a list focusing on 'family' or PG-13 movies, it means the likes of Die Hard and Bad Santa missed the cut.

Regardless, Elf has been crowned the victor and we must respect the result.


As well as Will Ferrell, the movie also stars James Caan (Las Vegas) and Zooey Deschanel (500 Days of Summer). It focuses on Ferrell's character Buddy, one of Santa's elves, who travels from the North Pole to meet his biological father.

With a budget of $33 million (£25 million), it made more than six times that at the Box Office. Even the tough-to-crack Rotten Tomatoes gave the film an 84 per cent rating, with the Critical Consensus saying: "A movie full of Yuletide cheer, Elf is a spirited, good-natured family comedy, and it benefits greatly from Will Ferrell's funny and charming performance as one of Santa's biggest helpers."

British television stations caused a bloody outrage around Christmas 2016 when it was revealed that not a single channel was showing Elf in the lead up to, or on the festive day.

Today, however, couldn't be any further away from two years ago. Taking to Twitter, one fan said: "How can anyone not enjoy Elf?"

Another added: "Snuggled in with the whole family watching Elf. Does life get any better?!"

A third said: "If you don't like Elf you have no soul".


So, if you happened to miss it get it on the telly quick and don't be a cotton-headed ninny muggins...
