Jack Frost is a singer who's on the road most of the time so he can't spend a lot of time with his son Charlie, although they love each other very much. When Jack dies in a car accident, Charlie becomes a very sad young man, until... Jack returns as a snowman! Now they can do all the things they've missed when Jack was human, but what will people think when they see Charlie talking to a snowman and what will happen when the weather gets warmer? Written by

George Clooney was originally attached to the project but when he left to do Batman & Robin, ex-Batman Michael Keaton was re-cast into the lead role. This caused no end of trouble for the Jim Henson's Creature Shop because they had designed their snowman animatronic specifically to Clooney's facial features and acting style. See more »
Despite the fact that they advanced ahead 1 year, everybody looks exactly the same (hairstyles, etc.) See more »
You know, sometimes it's good having a big butt.

The film opens with the 75 Years Warner Bros. Pictures logo covered in snow on a snowy night background and pans down into the concert hall where the Jack Frost Band is playing. See more »
Sorry everyone, but I liked this movie. I even cried at the end. My kids freaked when the snowman started to talk and move - one of them got scared by a guy in a teddy bear suit when she was about 3, and she hasn't got over it yet (2 yrs later). They had loved the start of the movie, with the snowball fight and building the first snowman, but as soon as the second snowman came to life we had to turn the video off.
I couldn't believe in Kelly Preston as the mother of an 11-yr-old boy, but in spite of that the casting was great. And Michael Keaton with blond hair is such a hunk . . .
Give it a go!
