TUTS Film Series: Elf
In Elf, being screened as part of the TUTS Film Series, Buddy (played by Will Ferrell) has never fit in with the other elves at Santa’s Workshop. That might have something to do with the fact that Buddy’s not an elf; he’s actually a rather tall human who was raised by elves (the supremely funny Bob Newhart plays Buddy’s adoptive elf father). When he discovers the truth, Buddy sets off for New York to find his human dad (James Caan), a busy publishing exec. Dad’s in for a surprise — not only does he have an adult son he never knew about, his son grew up thinking he was an elf.
