Product Description

Product Description

Michael Keaton stars as a rock'n'roll dad who gets one last chance to finetune his life -- and prove that "ice" guys finish first -- in this wild, wintry fantasy-adventure frosted with a blizzasrd of special effects!

Amazon.ca

Whatever you do, don't confuse this Jack Frost with the 1997 comedic horror flick of the same name (its tagline: "He's chillin... and killin'"). This family film stars Michael Keaton as Jack Frost, an aspiring musician, loving husband, and occasionally absent father. Frost's life is unexpectedly cut short by a car accident, and a year after his death he comes back as--you guessed it--a snowman, to help his family heal (Kelly Preston and Joseph Cross as wife and son Gabby and Charlie, respectively). The sudden death may affect sensitive younger viewers, but by the time Frost returns the movie is more light-hearted, and the film's message is a worthy one. There's an underlying theme that supports independence, and Gabby isn't saddled with a new dude by the film's end. There's also a good rapport developed between father and son, and especially mother and son. If an audience can take that huge leap of faith to accept the premise (as youthful audiences will no doubt be able to do), this is entertaining family fare. --N.F.

I became introduced to this movie when my son brought home a book from school that contained an elementary school-level synopsis of the story. He had me read it to him at bedtime. When I was reading the ending to him, I looked over and saw tears in his eyes. That created the same effect in me and I immediately decided that we WOULD see the movie. It must have been a slow night at the theatre complex because my son and I were the only two watching the movie that night. It certainly added to the special feelings we both had for the movie. Obviously, the VHS was under the Christmas tree next year.
With all that, why did I only rate it 4 stars? Well, as a movie, it doesn't quite earn its' place among the classics. The acting's OK, the storyline is good, the photography, sets and scenery are fine, but it doesn't near the level of a "Wizard of Oz" or "Toy Story". On the other hand, if you're a father with a young son and you're both looking for a good movie to rent on a cold winter's night, I've got a recommendation...

i'm such a weirdo. i noticed this movie laying around the other day and started to watch it. yes, it's not christmas time. oh well. i decided to review it anyway, perhaps there is somebody else out there who watches xmas movies at odd times. i remember the first time i watched this, i thought it was an ok movie but not great. i think it's crazy. a dad coming back as a creepy snowman?? there are some sad parts that will make you teary like when the boy is making the snowman while "landslide" plays and of course at the end. i like michael keaton and it's cool that he sings in the movie. all in all, it's nicely done and a cute movie for kids but a little disconcerting because it deals with death and some heavy feelings and stuff like that.

Christmas time is for giving. But unfortunately for the Frost family, Dad's not coming home. After a car accident, "Jack Frost" (Michael Keaton) is reincarnated as a snowman! He comes back to spend some quality time with his grieving family, his wife Gabby and son Charlie (Kelly Preston and Joseph Cross). While bonding with his boy, the two join forces to battle the local bullies at school with torpedo snowballs and massive sled chases. It was pure superiority! Gabby learns how to live without her husband and becomes an independent, single mother. Jack's motives were clearly dauntless. Charlie gained confidence as well and stood up against the evil snowboarders. Jazz music has never sounded better with the talent of Michael Keaton singing. This movie is an inspiration for anybody and is a masterpiece that should be experienced every Christmas. People watch the "Charlie Brown Christmas" and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," but they forget the true adroitness of this refined family picture. Some people may even be afraid of building snowmen after watching this movie. It's just freaky that a snowman can talk and boogy with his kid. Oh, he's the coolest dad now, get it!? ... This movie really does deliver life changing messages that should not be taken granted for. Family bonding is an important value everyone should cherish. I praise this movie. Surely, this is Michael Keaton's finest performance since "Batman" and Kelly Preston is an idolic figure for any single mother. Just think if you have it bad now, just see how Gabby dealt with her late husband being a snowman. So, why don't you sit down with your family and build a fire, but be sure you don't have a snowman around. No melting. Love is the key and I can't emphasize that enough. This movie shows the true meaning of Christmas. "Jack Frost" will go down in history as a ... motion picture event.

If a movie has a snowman in it, then it's a movie for me. It's hard to put into words what these rotund beings of crystalized water molecules represent, but their icy-calm joviality in the dead of winter brings a smile to my face. They symbolize life, when life is in hibernation.
(Although, the word "snowman" is gender-specific, and beings so pure are above such petty distinctions. I prefer calling them "snow-sapiens.")
With the advances in CGI, I was waiting for Hollywood to bring me a lifelike tale of snowmen. My hopes were granted with the release of the magical film "Jack Frost."
Full of dazzling special effects, "Jack Frost" brings us the story of a young boy (Charlie) who's lost his father. They are reunited when Dad's spirit animates a bouncy, energetic man of snow. Michael Keaton (in his best work since "Multiplicity") provides the voice of this cool character. Together, Charlie and the snowman share many snow-themed adventures, from a rousing sled-ride to a snowball fight. To be sure, their opponents don't stand a chance against a being so adept at throwing projectiles formed from his own substance! Such is the power of Jack Frost.
It's poetic that a being composed of cold can bring such a magical tale of warmth. This uplifting fairy tale will be frozen in place as a classic of American cinema.
Just beware of a similarly titled movie about a serial-killing snow creature. It's a stain on the purity of snow-sapien films.

JACK FROST is a wonderful film. It's about an aspiring musician, Jack Frost (Michael Keaton) who is struggling relationships with his loving wife, Gaby (Kelly Preston), and 12-year-old son, Charlie (Joseph Cross) because his band is keeping him from spending quality time with them. Then, on Christmas, Jack finds out that his band just got a record deal but they have to leave to go to a party so the record label can hear them play. And he had already made plans to spend Christmas with his family. He goes off, but then decides to head home again because he doesn't want to miss Christmas with his family. On the way home, however, it starts snowing really hard and he gets into a car accident and dies.
Exactly a year later, Gaby and Charlie and still struggling from the loss of Jack. Charlie goes outside his house one night and tries to make a snowman the way he made one with his father the year before. Suddenly, a few hours later, the snowman comes to life after Charlie plays the hermonica his father had given to him. Jack is given a second chance (even though he comes back to life in the form of the snowman Charlie built) to prove to Charlie and his wife that he can be a dedicated loving father and husband.
JACK FROST is a really fun and delightful family film. It's for all ages (though really young children may find the death of Jack Frost a little tense). Through all the humor, there is a tender, touching message. It's a little sad at the end, too. The acting by the entire cast is absolutely superb. I was surprised that Michael Keaton could sing - he does it very well, even if he was trained for it during the filming. The supporting cast also includes Andy Lawerence, who plays Charlie's best friend.
