"Buddy - the Christmas Elf": The performers: inside today!

 Every year again, "Buddy - the Christmas Elf" sweetens the Advent time. Hard to believe that the film has become 18 years old - he already appeared on December 11, 2003 in Germany! High time to look at what the performers: in the popular Christmas film from Jon Favreau today. © Warner Bros. Buddy The Christmas Elf wants Ferrell Will Ferrell brings people still to laugh The Star of the film is inevitably wants Ferrell , which embodies the title character.

It is unthinkable today, but in the early days of the television, it did not make one of the most successful US series on German screens: "I Love Lucy", the classic of SitCom Genres par excellence. In this country, therefore, everyone is probably not everyone right away, which has the title "Being the Ricardos", which makes the film for the German audience might even even more interesting.

Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, so the couple meant from 1951 to six seasons long in the center of "I Love Lucy" and achieved in America ratio of up to 70 percent. They were played by Lucille Ball, which had never been on the cinema wall never beyond secondary roles, and Desi Arnaz, a Kuba-derived nightclub star. The two were also married in real life and for millions of households the American dream couple par excellence.

US President Joe Biden chose Caroline Kennedy, the last child still alive from the murdered president John F. Kennedy , as the US ambassador in Australia, announced the White House in a statement Wednesday.

Aaron Sorkin tells of these two, played by Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem, and their show now starting from a single week in their lives. The fact that the press wind gets that ball - from family, non-political reasons - member is in the Communist Party, could mean all success in spite of the end of the series. That the two expect a second child and want to integrate the pregnancy into the plot of "I Love Lucy", reinforces the demise at transmitter and sponsors. And that their marriage is generally on wobbly legs and their co-stars are not always easy to care for, does not make everyday work easier.

The temporal limitation of sorkins to five days in the life of Ricardos proves to be a bit cheeky, but effective cheating: In fact, he compresses various real events, which in reality have been in different years, but at least the local audience hardly will notice.

US President Joe Biden was Wednesday, December 15th visiting Kentucky, one of the most bruised states by the tornadoes who hit the US center a few days ago. Throughout his career, the President promised that the federal state will be alongside victims.

The acclaimed screenwriter Aaron Sorkin ("The West Wing - in the center of power", "The Newsroom", "The Social Network") remains loyal to his style in his third director's work, meaningful monologues are in addition to detailed observations of the mechanisms of television. However, the staging is still not his strength, and some decision - such as a pseudo-documentary framework action - seems to be amateur. Nevertheless, as a multifaceted and very humorous view of the American show business in the middle of the 20th century, the film works as well as as a platform for Kidman, which has been so convincing as for several years no longer.
