Product Description

Jack Frost: Deluxe Edition (1979)

]]>

Amazon.com

A 1979 Rankin-Bass, stop-motion animated program similar to Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Jack Frost is a classic winter tale of good and evil, hope and despair, and love and sacrifice that will captivate viewers 5 and older. Narrated by Pardon-me-Pete Groundhog (Buddy Hackett) and framed as an exploration of the tradition of Groundhog Day, the music-filled Jack Frost is actually the story of young sprite Jack Frost who, under Father Winter’s leadership, is responsible for bringing winter weather to the world. Felt, but never seen, a lonely Jack begs to become human when he falls in love with January Junction resident Elisa. Father Winter grudgingly grants Jack Frost a winter of humanity, warning that in order to remain human forever, he must acquire the four essentials of a home, horse, bag of gold, and wife by springtime. Finding these essentials requires that Jack Frost overthrow the evil King of the Cossacks Kubla Kraus, a mission that is difficult and dangerous. Even with the help of fellow sprites Snip the snowflake maker and Holly the snowflake gypsy, Jack must make a very significant personal sacrifice in order to remove Kubla Kraus from power and ensure the continued well-being of Elisa and January Junction. Bonus features include three "Totally Cool Crafty Creations" with Francine Flake (cutting snowflakes, making a snow globe, and creating instant snow) and the three sing-along-songs ("Jack Frost," "Just What I Always Wanted," and "The Groundhog Song") accompanied by movie footage and onscreen lyrics. --Tami Horiuchi

I am a grown woman but have a soft spot for this movie. I could watch it everyday till the day I die and never get sick of it. The soundtrack I even like. Micheal Keaton is amazing in everything. I must warn you though, bring the tissues. I cry like a baby during this movie. It's sad. A struggling musician who dies when his son Charlie is 11 on christmas. Then a year later things are hard for Charlie and Gab (the wife). Jack (the dad) comes back as a snowman and freaks Charlie out. It gives a good message. You can always talk to someone when they're in your heart. Never let go of that. One of my personal favorites.

This movie is a bit of a departure for Michael Keaton.. 1. It's a family movie, that younger kids will really click to. 2. Michael Keaton also sings a few tunes in his rock band, I found that a biut interesting.
The whole story revolves around a Father, and his son. The father never has enough time for his child,, and dies suddenly in a car wreck. Michael Keaton come back to Earth as a Snowman, and find that he has to spend some time with his boy. Winter doesn't last forever though, and it does have a sad ending.

I loved this movie. My dad just died two months ago and this is the first time I've seen this movie. Tomorrow I'm going out and build a snowman, play my harmonica, and pray that my dad comes back as a snowman. I miss him.

"Jack Frost" is truly a classical family movie for our time. It's the sotry about a Dad (Michael Keaton) who gets killed in a car accident. One year later, his spirit returns in the form of a lovable snowman. While during his lifetime, he was always busy, and just didn't make time to be with his son, now as the snowman he makes a final attempt to let his son know that he really loved him, and that he'll be always with him in his heart. It's good to see that Hollywood can still produce movies that touch the heart and that are enjoyable entertainment for the whole family. Don't forget to keep a box of Kleenex near by.

My dad was thee exact same way! Music was his #1 priority, I was 3rd, (women were 2nd). He didn't die, but he might as well have. The last time I saw him, I was 8 years old & it was Christmas Eve. I've watched this movie every year around Christmas time since I can remember! Not just because it's a good flick, but because I can relate! I mean even the little things, like the fact that the dad has a chubby music buddy & that the mom's a blonde, it's just more similarities! A must see for thee entire family & anyone whose experienced a similar life!

A master class in filmmaking. The crown-jewel of the late-90s dead-father-as-snow-men genre.

This movie transports you a wondrous place - a place where internal logic and the motivational coherence of its characters mere vestiges - trappings of your sad, normative in movie-going.

Jack Frost is the real deal. ART, man.

Some Questions: If you came back from the dead as a snowman, would you hide your ghastly, horrific visage from the public?
Or would you simply wander round town; an albatross to both your son's psychological well-being and social life?
Would you try and get in touch with your widow, to console, to care, to perhaps reconcile for your absence?
Or would you spend virtually all of your post-mortem, almost-definitely limited time on teaching your unappreciative kid a cool hockey trick?
After re-materializing and opening up several existential quandaries as this icy golem: do you stay with your still-traumatized family to help nurse the wounds of your untimely demise, or attempt in any way to make up for lost time?
Or do you completely & arbitrarily exit AGAIN from their lives - this time with seemingly no impetus - leaving only a series of incoherent behavioral questions in your wake?
Would you explain to anyone where or what you've been for a year, to assuage humanity's spectral terror of death and what-lies-after?
DO YOU ADDRESS UN-BEING AND NOTHINGNESS?

No. You are Jack Frost. You Da Man. You Da SNOWman.

Michael Keaton dies in a car accident and his soul is inexplicably sent into the body of a snowman. The changing of the seasons is presumed to mark the death knell of this newly reanimated Keaton, but there are cold enough places that he probably could have lived within indefinitely. A walk-in freezer, or a mountain top hideaway. But no, this movie is about Keaton having to apologize to his son for being good at his job, and apparently not loving his family enough. It's not clear whether or not any of this is true, but he must make amends within an artificial timeframe. Keaton attempts to accomplish this through various awkward snowman hijinks that will probably entertain children but will either bore parents or send their thoughts into bleak existential worry about, for instance, what it means when he begins to melt. Are those his innards? Does it hurt? Why am I thinking so hard about this dumb movie? Frosty the Snowman is a better version of a possessed snowperson and utterly lacks this straw man debate about being a better parent. Plus Frosty dies a horrible death in a greenhouse at one point. Note that Jack Frost was originally going to star George Clooney but he backed out at the last minute. This is why the puppet has the "Clooney" eyebrows. The horror movie version of Jack Frost, which came out around the same time (possibly tricking some families into renting the wrong film?) was more fun because those who made it at least acknowledged what a terrible concept it was that they were putting to film. As it stands this family-friendly version is only slightly less horrifying. A disturbing film. One star.
