Christmas isn't complete without a festive holiday movie, and one of the most beloved classics of all time is Elf. Released in 2003 and directed by Jon Favreau (best known for Iron Man), the film stars Will Ferrell as Buddy, a human raised among Santa's elves who heads to New York City to find his biological father, played by James Caan. With a star-studded cast including Zooey Deschanel and Ed Asner, this quotable movie is sure to warm the heart of anyone who watches it.

If you want to watch this holiday favorite, there are several ways you can do so. You can stream the movie on streaming services, buy or rent it from traditional retailers, and even watch Elf while traveling with a VPN, according to PEOPLE.

The first place you should look for Elf is on Hulu, the subscription streaming service that's a favorite of many fans. Hulu has a number of plans, starting at $7.99 per month. All include unlimited on-demand viewing and are available in HD.

You can also check out Elf on Amazon Prime Video and YouTube. However, these platforms require a paid subscription to access the movie. Alternatively, you can purchase Elf on Vudu for $2.99 and up, depending on the plan you choose.

If you don't have any of these options, you can still see the film on the big screen in select theaters. Check out the list below to see which locations near you are showing this classic holiday film.
