Elf (2003). I'll admit it. I just never got Will Ferrell until I saw elf. He's childish, but in the best way possible. When holiday stress starts to edge out the good stuff, I pop this dvd into the player and get the joy of the season back again.

Throughout this film, you want the family so badly to get back together and so when they do, you feel immense elation. A testament to the film making of this story, from the acting (brilliant on Naomi Watts, Ewen McGregor and Tom Holland part), dialogue, and those amazing shots of the tsunami, it delivers the heart of the true story behind this and ends up being incredibly moving.
