  • Synopsis: Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa’s elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.

Need to do some holiday shopping? The Marketplace opens at 5 pm, offering an opportunity to #supportlocal and shop more than a dozen local makers.
No time to make dinner? We have you covered with homemade goodness from our local food vendors.
Need to work off the school and workday? with a game of pickleball, corn hole, checkers, or chess.

Make sure to leave time to stop by and meet the JOLLY TIME News field team while they are at the LOOP during their Southeast tour.
While here, they will be offering free samples of freshly popped JOLLY TIME Pop Corn and engaging consumers about the product, while also seeking out happy, feel-good stories from the local community to feature on JOLLY TIME Social channels.
