Will Ferrell stars as the ultimate fish out of water, Buddy, who as a baby crawls into Santa’s toy bag and is whisked off to the North Pole, where he is raised as an elf. A cheerful misfit who grows to be three times the size of his elf family, Buddy ultimately heads to his birthplace – New York City – to seek out his roots.
Unfortunately, they turn out to be a “Scrooge”-like father and a cynical eight-year-old half-brother who doesn’t believe in Santa. Worst of all, everyone seems to have forgotten the true meaning of Christmas. But using his simple elf ways, Buddy sets out to singlehandedly win over his family and save Christmas in New York, hoping at last to find his true place in the world.
