    Synopsis


    Jack Frost
    Michael Keaton stars in this special-effects-heavy Christmas film about a boy who discovers, after his father dies in a car accident, that his dad is still alive in the form of a snowman. Unlike the horror film of the same name, Jack Frost is a children's film designed to warm the soul during a chilly winter season. Think of this film as a live-action version of the children's classic Frosty the Snowman. The story starts with Jack Frost (Michael Keaton), a harmonica-playing blues rocker who spends too much time pursuing his musical career, leaving little time for his wife (Kelly Preston) and son Charlie (Joseph Cross). Feeling guilty for his absence and missing his son's hockey practice, he decides to forego his big audition to spend Christmas with his family. While driving home for the holidays, however, Jack dies in a tragic auto accident. The following Christmas, Jack's son builds a snowman and decorates it with his father's old clothes. When Charlie plays his father's harmonica, Jack Frost returns home in the body of the snowman. Jack has to show Charlie how much he loves him and also has to teach him the ice hockey shot he never got around to when he was alive. Along the way there are snowball fights and sled chases, and Jack finally realizes the great times he was missing with his son. ~ Arthur Borman, Rovi

      This review is about this DVD edition of the movie, not the movie itself. At this point, there is no Blu-ray release, so this is the only option to own this movie. The positive is the nice cover art. The negatives are the very flimsy ECO case, no disc art, 2 sided disc with fullscreen and letterboxed edition. In this time and age we don't need fullscreen. The picture quality is just OK, you can see noise and dust. No real special feautures. Overall, this is a fair purchase for the $3.75 price point, but don't expect high quality.

      I first saw this at the theater and when we left the theater it was snowing outside. I love this story! It pulls at your heart strings. I decided to get the DVD - which was a great sale - just in case the VHS player decided it had decided to bite it. I love this story. Get some hot chocolate or coffee and snuggle up on a snow day to watch it. The magic of the story touches your heart.

      Very good and emotional movie. Mr. Keaton at his best. The child acting is not the best, but the emotional ending would make the toughest guy sniffle. Highly recommend if you like movies from the heart

      This is a cute movie in its own way but is not shown much on television or cable probably because death is not usually associated with Christmas movies. Excellent performances from Kelly Preston, Mark Addy and Michael Keaton.

      Decent Holiday Entertainment

      Not to be confused with the ludicrous horror movie of the same name, this version of 'Jack Frost' is decent family entertainment, but definitely a film the kids are more likely to enjoy than the adults. Widescreen and full-screen viewing options, but not much in terms of extras.
