Review of the Week

15th december 2017

Well done to Laiba (Year 6) for her review of Elf



This is the best Christmas comedy film I've ever seen! This movie is about a human who doesn't know that he is not one of Santa's helpers. An Elf (a real one) adopts him and raises him. Unfortunately, Buddy (the human 'elf ' grew a bit too tall and was taller than everyone. One day Buddy's adopted father tells him where his real father lives and he (Buddy) decides to set off to look for him. On the way, he causes a few (OK.. a load of) problems.


My two favourite parts are when Buddy sits in the girls’ locker room and sings along whilst one of his work friends is taking a shower! My second favourite part is when Buddy mixes lots -and I mean LOTS - of sugar contained sweets in spaghetti. The least favourite part of mine was when ..... well actually I don't have a least favourite part. This movie is just too good - I mean fantastic. Buddy was my favourite character in the movie because he is very brave throughout the movie, and whenever he got told off or was hurt by other people’s words he will still have a smile on his face! :)


I definitely recommend this film for family, friends and all people who love a bit of romance, comedy, and adventure all mixed together around Christmas time! This movie earned it's 5 stars from me!!! :)
