WILL FERRELL STARS IN "ELF," TO BE REBROADCAST SATURDAY, DEC. 20
Will Ferrell ("Anchorman," "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby") stars in the ELF, a comedy about a man raised as an elf at the North Pole who is sent to New York in search of his true identity, to be rebroadcast Saturday, Dec. 20 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. (Originally broadcast 12/16/06)
As a baby, Buddy (Ferrell) crawls into Santa's toy bag and is whisked off to the North Pole, where is raised as an elf. A misfit who grows up to be three times the size of his elf family, Buddy ultimately heads to his birthplace of New York City to seek out his roots.
Unfortunately, they turn out to be a "Scrooge"-like father (James Caan) and a cynical 10-year-old stepbrother who doesn't believe in Santa. Worst of all, everyone seems to have forgotten the true meaning of Christmas. But by using his simple elf ways, Buddy sets out to single-handedly win over his family and save Christmas in New York, hoping to at last find his true place in the world.
