Now we have proof: It's possible for the Jim Henson folks and Industrial Light and Magic to put their heads together and come up with the most repulsive single creature in the history of special effects!

The snowman, which is the work of Jim Henson's Creature Shop, is the most glaring problem. It looks about as real as a man in a costume, and it's tough to suspend disbelief when you're trying to locate the zipper.

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.

Not to be confused with the horror film of the same name, this Jack Frost is still so frightening I'd hesitate to put it before any child who ever plans to see a snowman.

If Jack Frost doesn't prove that Hollywood is not only creatively bankrupt but actually in the hands of minions of Satan, then I don't know what does.

We don't even get the satisfaction of seeing the snowman melt like the classic Frosty the Snowman cartoon.

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.

One of those dumb, corny concoctions that attempts to be a heartwarming family film, but is too muddled in its own cliches and predictability to be the least bit touching.

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.

What makes it hard to swallow is that it's utterly inconsequential while pretending to be both hipper and more emotional than it really is.
