Elf (2003)

Elf is a 2003 American Christmas comedy film. David Berenbaum’s Jon Favreau was the director of the film. The film stars Will Ferrell, James Caan, Zooey Deschanel, Mary Steenburgen, Daniel Tay, Bob Newhart, and Ed Asner. The film focuses on Buddy, a person adopted and raised by the elves of Santa. He hears about this and travels to New York City. Also, this is for him to meet his biological father while spreading Christmas cheer among a world of cynics.

New Line Cinema released the film on November 7, 2003. Audiences and critics appreciated Ferrell’s role as Buddy the Elf, with many calling it one of his best performances.


A Christmas Story (1983)

A Christmas Story is an American Christmas comedy film. It is based on the semi-fictional stories of Jean Shepherd in his 1966 book In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash. The film had the elements from his 1971 book Wanda Hickey’s Night of Golden Memories And Other Disasters. This stars Melinda Dillon, Peter Billingsley, and Darren McGavin.

White Christmas (1954)

White Christmas is an American musical film directed by Michael Curtiz in 1954, which features Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen. Filmed in VistaVision and Technicolor, it includes Irving Berlin’s songs, including a new version of the title song, “White Christmas”, which Crosby released in the 1942 movie Holiday Inn.

The Holiday (2006)

The Holiday was written, produced, and directed by Nancy Meyers in 2006 as a romantic comedy film. Co-produced by Bruce A., the film starred Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz as Iris and Amanda – two beautiful women from across the Atlantic Ocean.

They plan a home exchange to avoid heartbreak during the Christmas and holiday seasons. The film’s leading men, Graham and Miles, were cast as Jude Law and Jack Black, with Eli Wallach, Shannyn Sossamon, Edward Burns, and Rufus Sewell playing crucial supporting roles.

Miracle on 34th Street (1994)

Miracle on 34th Street is an American Christmas Comedy-drama fantasy film. Les Mayfield (the two would come together for Flubber in 1997) was the director of the film. It stars Richard Attenborough, Mara Wilson, Elizabeth Perkins, and Dylan McDermott. It is the fourth remake of the original 1947 film (and the second theatrical version). Like the original, 20th Century Fox released the film.

Macy’s department store located in New York City refused any association with this revival, so it became its substitute for the fictional “Cole’s”.
