We ended up being pleasantly surprised with the quality of Snowmen. My husband said he thought it was much better than its contemporaries. Family films are often stereotypically cheesy both in the script and the acting but this was not. The main character Billy is played by Bobby Coleman a young up and comer. He did a great job and he was supported well by a few seasoned veterans including Ray Liotta. The two of them made a very touching father-son in this powerful story.

I will add that Nate (6yr) is an especially curious boy and this movie inspired a lot of probing questions both during and after the movie. I think I would use your judgement when watching the movie with kids any younger than 6yr old because of the seriousness of some of the themes: bullies, cancer, what happens when we die, etc. I am certain we will be having conversations on these topics for days to come.

All in all we found Snowmen to be a delightful and profound movie that will appeal to a wide range of ages making it ideal for family viewing. You can learn more about Snowmen by visiting [...]

I love this movie! I was really surprised by how a children's movie could have so much depth while still connecting with its young audience. My younger siblings loved it! They've been asking to see it ever since we saw it in the theater. Definitely getting it for Christmas :D

This movie is heartwarming and depicts the reality of loyalty, love, friendship and bullying as it truly happens in the lives of gradeschool children. I have shared this movie with neighbors and friends who have asked if they could borrow it and watch it again. I definitely recommend this movie to all.

I very much enjoyed this lightly-funny movie. Often, coming-of-age movies of this type go overboard with the change of heart, or have inappropriate scenes. This film had neither of these; it was carefully crafted so everything in the film was entirely credible, including the main character's change of heart. I also appreciated how well primed the various plot elements were. When the film arrived at crucial turning points, the action felt proper for the film.

I would (and will) recommend this film to anyone who asks.

Keep them coming, Arc Entertainment.

They boys are full of life, and excitement. the movie shows a young boy who is dieing and fulfilling his last wish. its really quite quirky and funny shows how to conquer a bully. Great show for the whole family. Not as sad as you might think. We were laughing a lot through it.

Someone recommended this movie to me, and I thought it was only about building snowmen. I found it difficult to explain a lot of the backstory to my 3 year old (walking sadly in a graveyard, dying, cancer). I think this is a great movie for older kids 8+ or for children who already grasp these situations. We will try again when he's older, because it is very well written and acted.

I had heard that this was a great family movie so I went to Amazon to look for it. It isn't out at any of our rental video places, so I decided to get my own copy.

My kids loved it and it got them into discussions about sick kids, being a good friend, etcetera.
