The best Elf quotes are those hilarious one-liners as Buddy, a human raised by elves, journeys from the North Pole to New York City to meet his dad. The comedy film was directed by Jon Favreau using a screenplay by David Berenbaum. Spreading Christmas cheer for all to hear, Elf opened in theaters on November 7, 2003.

In Elf, Buddy (Will Ferrell), a 30-some-year-old human who was raised as an elf at the North Pole, learns one day at Santa's Workshop that he is not an elf, rather a human who was abandoned as a baby. Santa (Ed Asner) explains that his father, who is on the naughty list, is Walter Hobbs (James Caan) who lives in New York City. Distraught, Buddy leaves Santa, Papa Elf (Bob Newhart) and his other North Pole friends to journey to the magical land of New York City.

But things are not as cheery as Buddy had hoped in the big city. While he does meet his father, his father's wife (Mary Steenburgen) and a half-brother (Daniel Tay), Buddy soon finds himself ill prepared for the real world. Thankfully, he does make one friend, a young woman who shares his affinity for elf culture, Jovie (Zooey Deschanel). But when Santa arrives in New York City and needs Buddy's help, Buddy finds out that his unique set of skills are something to be proud of.

Elf is just one of several great Christmas films from throughout the years and a favorite of fans everywhere. What's your favorite Elf movie quote? Don't be a cotton-headed ninny-muggins, vote for your favorites all right here!
