Awww.   Does someone need a hug?
Awww. Does someone need a hug?
I like to whisper too.

Okay I Love You.  I'll Call You in 5 Minutes!

Through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest and the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then through the Lincoln Tunnel.

GIMBEL'S:) This is the North Pole. No it's not. Yes it is. No it isn't. I Love Smiling. Smiling's My Favorite! SANTA! Oh My God! I know him.

Elf ~~~ 2003

Buddy the elf travels to New York City to find his real dad and his real identity as a non-elf. Problem is, dad's on the naughty list and you can't take the elf out of Buddy no matter where he is. Through snowball fights, riding escalators in a full split and free gum samples on the subways, this guy's an elf in his heart and we can't stop loving him for a second. He even fixes Santa's sleigh and helps to save Christmas from the Central Park Rangers. How does he do it? Scroll to the bottom of the page to find out...

Classic elflore....

  • Can't wait to see my dad. We're gonna go ice skating and eat sugarplums.
  • Francisco. That's fun to say.
  • ooh it's very sucky!
  • He's an angry elf.
  • Buddy the elf. What's your favorite color?
  • This is kinda like Santa's workshop escept it smells like mushrooms and everyone looks like they wanna hurt me.
  • *BBBuuuurrrrpppp* Did you hear that?
  • You disgust me. You're sitting on a throne of lies!
  • You did it! Congratulations! World's best cup of coffee. Great job everybody.

and all those classic NY moments.

I am making a voodoo doll of you, dressed like spalding from caddyshack, holding a baby ruth...there is no way caddyshack is so far down on your list....I think you have beaver phobia.

No, but that's funny as hell.

If you read the hub that reveals Caddyshack i explain that it's Golf that turns me off. The fake-looking beaver doesn't help though.

Too funny. 

If only I'd known that wearing gay pants carrying a small stick was manly.  

As the REAL MAN George Carlin once said playing golf is like participating in a racist and elitist pasttime.  Have you ever tried to watch golf on TV?  It's like watching flies f**k!

Nice try funneBONE but I'm teflon to your taunts.  :P

I'm glad I didn't do a top 100 list. People want to hurt you...LOL.

For real though, Elf is a very funny movie - I like the scene where the short black dude is in the meeting and Buddy keeps calling him an elf.

"Say elf one more time!"

"He's an angry elf."

BTW. Most of my visitors are non hubbers.

I can't get non-hubbers to come here and comment at all. Not even my friends and fans who read my stuff.

I just never had any internet friends before. Or enemies HaHa!

I would put the Holy Grail and Hot Fuzz at the top 2, if it were me writing this hub....buuut it's not. Good choices though!

      Before I reveal the next 10 films, I'd just like to explain my intent here. I am not ranking these films in order of their greatness, nor am I saying that these are the best films ever, this is purely entertainment.

    • 100 Incredible Films (Vol. 6 ~ 50-41)
      19

      Ten more classics from the Funktual Library of Films! If you are as frustrated as me at Blockbuster/Netflix, why not go retro and see the good stuff you've missed?

    • Best '80s New Wave Songs
      336

      This epic list was inspired by my childhood radio station WLIR-WDRE 92.7 fm on Long Island. Their mantra was 'Dare To be Different' and they were introducing new bands every single week. Let's begin.
