Goofs

Jack is 18 in the movie, which means he is 18 when he dies. Since baby teeth are usually replaced by the age of 13, they shouldn't contain Jack's memory of the day he died. However there are instances when people may still have a baby tooth into adulthood. See more »

Quotes

Jack Frost: Darkness. That's the first thing I remember. It was dark, and it was cold. And I was scared.

A Movie Destined To Become A Classic!
30 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is magical and utterly charming. In this film DreamWorks did it all exactly right. Every voice is precisely as it should be. Perfection! Chris Pine, Jude Law, Hugh Jackman, too many to list …if you didn't know that was Alec Baldwin doing the Russian accent for Santa, you would never guess it. The characters, all of them, are endearing, totally engaging. Sad moments, glad moments, hilarious moments. I haven't laughed this much in an animated movie since….well, never, actually. As I said, this one is destined to become a classic. A wonderful family movie and best of all it doesn't just appeal to the children, adults will love it too. Every adult in the audience,while I was there, seemed as captivated as the kids. And how many movies do you go to these days where, at the end, people applaud? They did for this one. And rightly so. I know I came out of that theater wishing I could somehow have my own Little Baby Tooth...and the friend I was with wished even more that she could have one of the Feisty Elves. You'll totally understand what I mean after you see this delightful movie. Don't miss this one!
