September 7, 2011
Jack Frost is so treacly and fake it makes you feel like you're trapped in a winter-wonderland paperweight.

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

Let it melt!

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.

Predictable!

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.

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.

Its heart is in the right place.
January 1, 2000
Its sentiment is rote, its truths are culled from a trip down the aisles of a greeting-card shop.
January 1, 2000
Jack Frost oozes the kind of fake warmth that gives family films a bad name.
January 1, 2000
It's just cheerful and bogus enough to keep children reasonably entertained.
January 1, 2000
Formulaic and charmless!
January 1, 2000
A slickly packaged and engagingly sentimental fantasy-comedy that stands out as one of the season's most pleasant surprises!
