It’s day 12 of our very own special Christmas Movie Advent Calendar, the Screen One Christmas Movie Countdown. Join with us as we continue to countdown to Christmas with a new movie to watch each day as the days get ever closer to the big day. All films are availble via various streaming and terrestrial TV services.
Day 12 – Elf (NOWTV)
When young Buddy falls into Santa’s gift sack on Christmas Eve, he’s transported back to the North Pole and raised as a toy-making elf by Santa’s helpers. But as he grows into adulthood, he can’t shake the nagging feeling that he doesn’t belong. Buddy vows to visit Manhattan and find his real dad, a workaholic publisher.
So it’s Saturday night on the Screen One Christmas Movie Countdown which means it’s time for one of the big Christmas movies for tonights viewing. Elf not only became a much loved Christmas movie very quickly, but it’s the film that shot Will Ferrell to superstardom. Without this it’s unlikely that Anchorman would have ever seen the light of day and Ferrells anarchic humour would have been wasted. With James Caan, it adds some real weight to proceedings but this also featured an early appearance from Game Of Thrones Tyrion Lannister himself the brilliant Peter Dinklage. This is a film that is watched by pretty much every family when you mention Christmas movies these days so it would be remiss of us not to include it. So here it is for you tonight. Don’t forget to join us tomorrow for another Christams cracker of a movie!
If you’re behind on the countdown you can catch up via the links below the poster. Enjoy.
