It took a lot to be the worst reincarnation fantasy titled Jack Frost from the second half of the 1990s, but by golly, they found a way.

It's a modern fairytale, complete with a magic harmonica that brings the snowman to life and a picture-postcard setting, featuring row upon row of twinkling Christmas lights and endless snowy vistas.

Jack Frost is so treacly and fake it makes you feel like you're trapped in a winter-wonderland paperweight.

Every year the DVD will [be] displayed as though it's worthy of renting. But it's out because it takes place around the holidays, not because it belongs to be there.

Jack Frost doesn't have much for adults, but at least you can rest your feet while your kid enjoys a light romp through a snowy fantasy.

A movie like this is supposed to make you laugh and make you cry, but Jack Frost just leaves you cold.

Though Charlie's snowball-fight rival suggests that "a snow dad is better than no dad," a therapist might differ.

It will no doubt appeal to eight-year-olds, but anyone older than that can pretty much be prepared to get to know their watchface very well.

This is a watchable, if by-the-book little movie.

It's just cheerful and bogus enough to keep children reasonably entertained.

No story, not enough humor, a silly setup, and a guy in the snowman suit who looks like he didn't make the first cut at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.

Its sentiment is rote, its truths are culled from a trip down the aisles of a greeting-card shop.

There is little sign of his acerbic wit here.

Jack Frost oozes the kind of fake warmth that gives family films a bad name.

The film is boring with a bad plot and so-so acting.

Preachy.

For a movie that should mainly appeal to the 5-to-9 set, Jack Frost often aspires to odd glimmers of adulthood, or at least, teenhood.

Jack Frost is about as warm and inviting as a snowball in Iceland.
