Along the way, the trio battles schoolyard bullies, unites their community and discovers that - while fame may be fleeting - true friendship lasts forever.

Trivia

The sequence of shots (from 42:20 to 43:44) starting with a crane shot from behind Billy as he looks out over a snowfield, then turns and begins speaking to the elementary school student body, pacing in front of them, extolling the task that lies before them, culminating in his cry "Let's make snowmen!", after which the students stream past him on either side, is director Robert Kirbyson' homage to 'Braveheart' for which 'Snowmen' producer Stephen McEveety was executive producer. Director Kirbyson says at 43:52 in the DVD Director's Commentary, he copied it nearly shot for shot. See more »

Goofs

At 45:07 when a girl in the background bumps a snowman, it rocks briefly because many of the snowmen were Styrofoam shells, open from the back, held down by cinder blocks. See more »

Quotes

Reggie Kirkfield: [1:18:46] Billy, those 53 minutes, do you remember anything?

best family film I've seen in last couple years
2 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

not for everyone -- semi sweet semi sad, some brilliant elements... and it all ends gloriously! Great job. Great story. Reminded me -- there is life, after life.

(And altho' you can't take the "things" of this world with you – You can take the person next to you…by helping them find life, after life. That's what Billy Kirkfield learns – you can take the person sitting next to you – a son, a daughter, a sister, brother – a friend, by pouring our "spirit" – our lives, into another – we can take them with us on the journey beyond this life).

Christopher Lloyd who plays a caretaker in the movie is EXCELLENT – and talks to the heroes - - 3 fifth grade boys intent on setting a world record. And he asks them how this setting a record, makes other people…happy? He tells the boys of attending a lot of funerals and that when people talk about living a good life…its not so much what we do or did that matters…as to how we did it. That being a good person may be a purpose all in itself. Being a friend – even to someone who doesn't want to be friends.

Isn't that after all what the greatest teacher of all modeled? Highly recommend. Great film.
