In this sequel of the first Jack Frost movie, Sheriff Sam Tiler, his wife Anne, and Sam's two deputies (also husband and wife) decide to go on a Caribbean vacation to take their minds off the traumatic events of the previous movie in a place with absolutely no snow. Their holiday will be short-lived, however, as the thawed murderer gets inadvertantly re-frozen and brought back to life. As if that weren't bad enough, he now has the ability to remain frozen even in tropical temperatures, and he's headed south to settle some old scores.Written by

It rained the entire four weeks of shooting the movie, resulting in a tropical island with an amazing lack of sun. See more »
At the 11 min 42 second mark of the film two guys are floating away on a raft in the ocean. Not only is their boat a lot higher above the ocean, but you can also see waves behind them crashing on the sand. See more »
After all the end credits finish the music continues as we see a door to the giant freezer where Marla and Joe ran in to get away from Jack and Sam and Anne forgot to rescue them. As soon as the song fades out Marla and Joe call for Sam's and Anne's help to open the door to get out of the freezer. There is a momoent of silence as they are both end up frozen to death inside the freezer. See more »
The DVD version released by Una-pix/Ardustry has more gore, nudity, and bad language than the VHS version. The VHS version has most of the gore, profanity, and nudity taken out, which is bizarre. The major differences between the DVD and the VHS are:
The deadly snowball fight is more gruesome. Tons of Blood splatters out from a man's arm onto a woman right after it's ripped off by the snowball. Also, there are shots of people getting gutted and killed by flying icicles and snow balls, with lots of blood everywhere. The VHS version cuts out before anybody is hit by the icicles or dies.
There is nudity in the scene where the woman jumps into the pool naked.
More gore in the scene where the three girls are killed by the beachside when Jack first comes onto the island.
Profanity is in in this version (barely any in the VHS).
More gore to practically every other murder in the movie. The DVD version also has a higher body count because the VHS cuts alot of deaths out.
Having already seen the original "Jack Frost", I never thought that "Jack Frost 2" would be as absurd as it is. Boy was I wrong! Then again, A-PIX movies have a way of showing unbelievably bad material, even worse than you might expect. I believe this is the first A-PIX sequel, and it may be an indication of what to expect in the future: more A-PIX sequels.
It's hard to watch this without laughing, especially during the later parts of the movie in which Jack Frost's offspring (which are essentially snowballs with eyes, arms, a mouth and sharp teeth) start killing people with the typical comedic dialogue and silly voices to go with it. They are shown both as puppets (with a stick underneath to move them) and as computer animation, which I have to say looks very cheesy. The computer animation surprised me, as the first "Jack Frost" had no such effects.
I'd strongly recommend that you see the original "Jack Frost" before seeing this one (both of which it would be preferable to watch with a group of friends) to get the full amusement out of it, and because it would make more sense ("sense" being a relative term).
Now only if there was "Uncle Sam 2"...
