Buddy the Elf is coming to town. New York City, to be precise. Having been raised in the North Pole, Buddy is returning to his place of birth in an attempt to track down his long-lost family and redeem his father, who’s been placed on the naughty list! Often uproariously funny, this festive fish out of water story features a hugely endearing performance from Will Ferrell as Santa’s oversized helper. With an endearing supporting cast, including Second City alumni Amy Sedaris and Ed Azner, this feel-good favourite is guaranteed to fill you with holiday cheer.

The recommended minimum age for this film is 7.
