Deschanel stars in this Christmas comedy film directed by Jon Favreau. She plays Jovie, a jaded department store clerk who does not feel the Christmas spirit. Her enthusiasm for the holidays is restored when she meets Buddy, a North Pole elf played by Will Ferrell. With James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, and Bob Newhart. On her favorite scene:
It was fun when we were in the department store because there were all these weird toys everywhere – little kid guitars, little stuffed animals, and just weird stuff. We had fun there.
