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 (1997), 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 »
When Charlie is building the snowman, he places a "The Jack Frost Band" button onto him and we see the red scarf. In the next shot, Charlie is putting the scarf onto the snowman. See more »
Rory, you know what it's like to have no dad.
Yeah, I do. It sucks! A snowdad is better than no dad.

This movie is a really cute movie and a great one to watch around the holidays with your family. It's not too cute though so that it becomes unlikable. It was interesting to see Michael Keaton in the Dad role (I've never him as anything besides Batman) and I think he made a really good Dad. I liked the way they dealt with death, it had a very real sense about it. Which is strange, because you have the Dad come back as a SNOWMAN (hah) but once you get over that (it does take a little while, don't give up) it becomes really nice. I like the ending - I guess I shouldn't give it away, but it was sweet without being corny. There is a really thin line between cuteness and overkill, but this movie is still on the cute side. (I gave it 9/10.)
