Elf is a movie that is geared towards older children. It’s very funny and appeals to school age children upwards. Elf is about an elf that discovers where he came from and it isn’t the North Pole. He returns to New York City to meet his biological father and try to find a place for himself in the world. Things don’t go as well as he’d hoped and there ends up being all sorts of misadventures for Buddy the Elf.
