One Liners Formulate Elf's Comedy


"Elf" is composed of one-liners throughout the movie.  These unique and hilarious phrases differentiate "Elf" from other holiday movies (and comedies) because it makes the movie memorable.  There's not one line that's funny; every one line is funny.  The fish-out-of-water situations that place Buddy the Elf in New York City are heightened by lines such as:
  • Believing the "world's best coffee sign" on a coffee shop window: You did it! Congratulations! World's best cup of coffee! Great job, everybody! It's great to be here.
  •  I'm a cotton-headed ninny-muggins. 
  • "I'm sorry I ruined your lives, and crammed eleven cookies into the VCR." 
  • First we'll make snow angels for two hours, then we'll go ice skating, then we'll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookie-dough as fast as we can, and then we'll snuggle.
