WHAT IS the perfect Christmas movie? Some say It's A Wonderful Life, others say Miracle On 34th Street, there are those who make the case for Die Hard, while for many it can only be Elf.
Galway fans of Elf can see this festival favourite on the big screen when it is shown at the Pálás Cinema on Monday December 10 at 6.30pm, with funds raised on the night going to Pieta House.
One Christmas Eve, a baby crawled into Santa's bag of toys. Raised as an elf, Buddy (Will Ferrell ) grows into an adult three times larger than the biggest elf, and realises he will never truly fit in at the North Pole. So he goes to New York City. There he finds his workaholic father, who is on Santa's "naughty" list, a new mother, and a 10-year-old brother who does not believe in Santa or elves. Here, Buddy discovers his destiny - to save Christmas for New York and the world.
