elf became one of the all-time great Christmas classics and is among the most popular Christmas movies of all time. Unlike 2021, when 13 Netflix regions were streaming this Christmas classic, only 5 regions are doing so in 2022. Here’s your Netflix streaming guide for elf in 2022.
Will Ferrell stars as Buddy the Elf, who is a bit different from all the other North Pole Elves.
When he begins to wonder why he is different, Santa Claus sends him on a trip to New York in search of his real father. The hilarity comes from the fact that Buddy isn’t a great fit for the Big Apple, and chaos ensues.
Alongside Ferrell in this 2003 comedy are James Caan, Amy Sedaris, Mary Steenburgen, Peter Dinklage, Artie Lange and Daniel Tay. Without a doubt, this is probably the most popular Christmas movie currently available, with only a handful of classics even coming close to rivaling it.
Is Elf on Netflix in the US?
elf hasn’t been available on Netflix for over 2 years and likely won’t be back anytime soon. It was last added to Netflix in July 2020 before leaving a month later in August 2020.
