Audience Reviews for Rudolph and Frosty: Christmas in July

½

Rankin/Bass dip into the well once more with the ultimate Christmas team-up, Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July. To save the Circus By the Sea Rudolph and Frosty team-up for a special 4th of July performance, but little do they know they are being manipulated by King Winterbolt who has awakened from his long slumber and is trying to ruin Santa Claus. Contrived doesn't even begin to describe the plot, and the songs are bad; they have no charm and aren't catchy. There's even some retconning of Frosty and Santa Claus' backstories. Still, there are some fun characters and it's a treat to see Rudolph and Frosty together. Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July has its moments, but overall it's a disappointing effort that's kind of lacking the spirit of the season (either one of them).

wha? I didn't quite understand or appreciate this movie. It's long and makes little sense. The idea of having Christmas in July at a big circus parade is very unusual. The songs just aren't very memorable.
