Drama has positive messages; bullying and iffy humor, too.
| Original Score: 3/5
Much like the kids in this movie who come of age, so too does Robert Kirbyson's skill as a writer-director in his debut film Snowmen.
| Original Score: 6/10
The kids are charming and the supporting cast lift this comedy from above its direct-to-video ambitions.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Funny, engaging, thought-provoking, meaningful, and one of the best family movies I've seen in a long time.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
A pleasant surprise: a sometimes offbeat if ultimately reassuring kids' film that compares favorably to the 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' adaptations.
A surprisingly effective debut effort from writer-director Robert Kirbyson.
A sweet but wholly artificial bit of family entertainment.
| Original Score: 2/4
Here the yardstick for measuring existential accomplishment is to beat someone at something in the most spectacular way possible.
Snowmen gets more tolerable as it reaches its life-and-death conclusion, but getting there is like watching a school play when none of your kids are in it.
| Original Score: 2/5
