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 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.

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

A slickly packaged and engagingly sentimental fantasy-comedy that stands out as one of the season's most pleasant surprises!

A very minor parable on paying attention to family while you can, Frost offers a wide range of passing diversions, from snowboarding derring-do to a minimally annoying computerized title character to lots of tender snowman-son bonding moments.

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.

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.

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.
