Elf (Feminist Film Reviews)

Few Christmas films have contributed as much to the cultural zeitgeist as Jon Favreau’s adorable film Elf (2003).

It shouldn’t have worked. A wacky yet occasionally dark comedy that included both live-action and stop-motion characters? Will Ferrell playing a human orphan raised as an elf? James Caan as a temperamental children’s book editor? (Okay, maybe that works.)
