** Jovie is given a much-needed {{backstory}} that explains why she's such a humbug when we first meet her, [[spoiler: she grew up in LosAngeles, where she describes Christmas as being, "surreal", because it never snowed; she had been living in New York for two years, and even then, she still never saw snow, so Christmas never felt special to her. That, and apparently she went out with a bunch of jerkasses over the years]].

** In another scene he mistakes a short book writer for an elf, & gets the crap beaten out of him. Despite the massive amount of force in his beating, he still isn't handicapped.
** The first time it happens for Buddy is when he encounters a raccoon. Said raccoon apparently mauls him after he ignores its pretty obvious warning symbol & yet he walks along without a single scratch on his face.

It manages to be a funny, charming and [[ParentalBonus(mostly)]] family-safe Christmas movie. A musical ScreenToStageAdaptation had limited, holiday-season engagements on Broadway in 2010 and 2012 and has since launched a touring production. An AnimatedAdaptation, ''Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas'', aired on Creator/{{NBC}} in 2014.
