I love Jack Frost. Superbad was great. Cuban Fury wasn't bad. I just don't get why this movie is so highly thought of. It has a few chuckles here and there, but all in all I didn't find it that funny. It struggles my head why it had to last for almost 2 hours.
Yes.. while it contains about 3 minutes of laughing.
First half of the movie was a bitter of disappointment. The other half I had moments I could laugh my butt off but still not a comedy to watch with your friends so that everyone needs a napkin to clean their eyes.
Anyhow.. I think some like it, some don't.
I wasn't too excited but I did enjoy my company who made me this movie experience as a present :)
The funniest moments was Frost's craftiness in dealing with certain Rom-com type situations. Jack Frost's freaking out and then endulging in various Jerry Lewis routines was funny too, although it didn't make much sense. I have seen both the TV and DVD version of this film and neither were able to impress on me the reason this movie is considered to be a "classic". This actor has had very many films not much funnier than this (together and not his own) though.
