‘Elf’ Starring Will Ferrell Is Apparently The Best Family Christmas Movie

‘Elf’ Starring Will Ferrell Is Apparently The Best Family Christmas Movie

With nearly less than a month until that 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, as some reckon the oldies are the best, whereas others are steadfast in their belief 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 Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Santa Claus starring Tim Allen, A Christmas Carol and Deck The Halls coming in fifth.

Obviously being a list focusing on 'family' or PG-13 movies, it means the likes of Die Hard and Bad Santa miss the cut. But it's surprising that Home Alone and Love Actually don't even feature in the contest.

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

The movie also stars James Caan (Las Vegas) and Zooey Deschanel (500 Days of Summer) and focuses on Will 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 percent 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 last Christmas when it was revealed that not a single channel was showing Elf in the lead up to, or on the festive day.

Naturally, people lost their shit, with one person saying on Twitter: "But it's not Christmas without Elf!"

Another wrote: "Could 2016 really get any worse?"

That tweet was made on December 19 and the person was yet to find out that, yes, 2016 could get much, much worse when Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds and George Michael died in the days leading up to the New Year.

Hopefully TV stations around the UK learned from last year's serious mistake and will have at least one channel show Elf; especially considering it's now been crowned the people's favourite.
