Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa's elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. After a DNA test proves that cynical businessman Walter Hobbs (James Caan) is Buddy's biological dad, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results. Rated PG.
This free screening is made possible through the generous support of the Mershad Family Foundation with additional support from Shirck Orthodontics.
