Elf is one of the new staples of every Christmas being an essential watch through the holiday seasons. Now Christmas has come around for 2019, can you stream the Will Ferrell classic on Netflix? You’re probably going to be disappointed with the answer.
Will Ferrell plays the role of Buddy the Elf who is a little different from all of the other elves in the North Pole. Once he starts questioning why he’s different, Santa sends him on a trip to New York City in search of his real father. The hilarity comes from the fact that Buddy isn’t very well adjusted for the big apple and chaos ensues.
Alongside Ferrell is James Caan, Amy Sedaris, Mary Steenburgen, Peter Dinklage, Artie Lange, and Daniel Tay. Without a doubt, this is probably the most popular Christmas movie currently available with only a handful of classics even close to rivaling it. It’s likely the reason that Will Ferrell pretty much stars in everything nowadays.
