THE PLOT:

The up and coming blues player Jack Frost is happening with everyone but his own family. With tours and one night stands at cheap dives his family gets pushed to the back burner. But Jack promises that he will be there for Christmas. A promise he has trouble keeping when he dies in a tragic car accident.

Heartbroken Charlie stopped building snowman, until one day the urge possess him to build one snowman. Which becomes the vessel for Jack's spirit. Now Jack is able to keep his promise and spend one more magical Christmas with his son.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Where to begin on this Jack Frost, you all know how I feel about the scary horror movie JACK FROST, but this is a magical family movie full of love and laughs. Michael Keaton plays Jack and he does do a great job. Of course some parents may object to the fact that Jack dies in the movie to become the snowman and some smaller children around five or six might have issues with that too. But older kids eight and up will shouldn't have a problem with Jack Frost. The effects are very impressive, it looks like the snowman is really alive and with new next Snowman technology is FROSTY THE SNOWMAN live version that far behind? That's the skinny on Jack Frost the family classic and I give it...9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

Again I agree with Zedd, I liked Michael Keaton, I liked the whole cast and all the characters. The story works and the effects were incredible. I would highly recommend it to families with kids over six. I also give it 9 STARS.
