A great family film for Christmas time! (by Wayne Eastwood)
This film definitely deserves higher marks, I don't know why anyone would give it a 1??? I was going to give it a 9, but decided on a 10 to bring up the percentage- help me out people! There is something for everyone in this movie, fun snow action for the kids, lessons on being a good friend and sticking up for others, lessons on being a good father, and a great soundtrack including some pretty good blues tunes! This movie also dealt with the death of a loved one in a very real way- not bad for a comedy/drama. I've always liked Michael Keaton and he doesn't disappoint me here.
'Rocker' Keaton... (by paul_muscat)
What I thought was essentially a kids' movie turned out to be a much more pleasurable experience. I know, I may be biased a bit towards anything MK-related, however even my best friend who was with me at the time when we saw it liked it a lot, even if we saw it closer to Summer rather than Christmas it came out in Malta, Europe - where I was still living at the time - like some 6 months after it came out in the US! . Anyway, Michael Keaton yet again gives a great performance as a 'snow'man trying quite desperately to make up for lost time. Kelly Preston is good too as his wife <more>
and the kid is ok-ish we've seen much better kid actors, in my opinion . It's only Mark Addy who seems like a fish out of water and looks like he's only in it either because he's a friend of the director or something! He just doesn't seem to gel! All in all, a very cute and neat movie, with good work from Keaton and a rocking good soundtrack, with tracks from the boys Hanson, among others, and Keaton himself raunchily singing a couple of tracks penned by someone from Yes. Great for a night in with the family.
My daughter and I saw this movie today, and I actually say that it could as well be rated G, and that the message has been very good, specially for those whom never stop for a moment to evaluate which is more important in life: family, or work and finances. In real life we know it would be impossible to happen, however the motivation in this picture might wake some people up to reality, and more home dedication. Very well done.
CUTENESS! all the way (by janelglin)
This movie is a really cute movie and a great one to watch around the holidays with your family. It's not too cute though so that it becomes unlikable. It was interesting to see Michael Keaton in the Dad role I've never him as anything besides Batman and I think he made a really good Dad. I liked the way they dealt with death, it had a very real sense about it. Which is strange, because you have the Dad come back as a SNOWMAN hah but once you get over that it does take a little while, don't give up it becomes really nice. I like the ending - I guess I shouldn't give it <more>
away, but it was sweet without being corny. There is a really thin line between cuteness and overkill, but this movie is still on the cute side. I gave it 9/10.
For me being 14 yo , the worst part of the movie was the fact that I was alone in the theatre with a bunch of little kids. I liked the movie, with some exceptions. It wasn't as bad as the critics say. The only part I didn't like was the part where the dad dies...it sorta seems to go on for a while its a part that stands out to me as being long, 6 months after I saw it . But comon...ITS NOT AS BAD AS PEOPLE SAY IT IS.
Family story of love and snow. (by lordzedd-3)
Where to begin on this Jack Frost, you all know how I feel about the scary horror movie JACK FROST, but this is a magical family movie full of love and laughs. Michael Keaton plays Jack and he does do a great job. Of course some parents may object to the fact that Jack dies in the movie to become the snowman and some smaller children around five or six might have issues with that too. But older kids eight and up will shouldn't have a problem with Jack Frost. The effects are very impressive, it looks like the snowman is really alive and with new next Snowman technology is FROSTY THE <more>
SNOWMAN live version that far behind? That's the skinny on Jack Frost the family classic and I give it...9 STARS.
Dad and Son bonding, with a difference... (by bennett_graeme)
Jack Frost is typical American schmaltz, and extremely sweet and sugary. Apple-pie, everything in America is rosy, Walton-mountain sanctimonious twaddle. Yet despite all that - it works. Michael Keaton is a typical `yes I promise I'll be there, son' only to be held up at work and miss another promise. Then one Christmas he is killed in a car wreck. Exactly a year later and when the son plays a 'magic' harmonica that his dad gave him, back comes dad - given a second chance - but in the guise of a snowman. Remarkably dad and son bond in the few short days that a snowman has in a <more>
way they never achieved before. Fabulous special effects, bags of adventure and enough one-liners to ensure that all family members will be satisfied. It will amuse the kids while some teens and adults may just find the whole thing a little to American twee. Nevertheless on the entertainment scale, it almost drops off the top end.
Not perfect, but perfect to take your kids to (by domoni)
This is one of those "don't analyze the special effects and just enjoy it" films. Don't get me wrong...the effects are good, but pretend you're ten years-old like your child and just let the film move you. Jack the Snowman is the dad we all wish we had.And when it's over...go make a snowman with the kids.
I liked it (by Amenhotep X)
I'm a 21 year old kid that liked this movie. I didn't care about the "not too great" special effects. Maybe the story is lame to many, but the movie gave me a good feeling and that's what it is all about, no? 8/10
