The return of Michael Keaton's character as a snowman is humorous and to some, creepy and should be explained as pure fantasy to young children: perhaps that the boy had a dream about his (recently deceased) father.
Music is also well used to keep interest, not unlike John Williams score in "Home Alone" (1990), although the music is not by Williams.
I found "Jack Frost" funny and sad in turns, especially sad in the final scene where Frost says goodbye to his son and wife.
So, Jack must miss out on Christmas morning with his family so he can travel with his band to a gig in order to get signed to a record deal. Halfway there, Jack decides he's made the wrong decision and heads home to surprise his wife and son. Tragically, he meets an untimely end on the way there. Now we cut to one year later and Charlie is a changed little boy. Still a sweet young man, he's understandably filled with deep sadness and disappointment over the loss. When it hits him the hardest, he goes out to build a snowman like he did with his father the year before and then blows on a "magic harmonica" that Jack had pretended he would always be able to hear. Surprisingly enough, the magic works and Jack has a chance to spend some real quality time with his son and help him through this terrible turn of events. The result is a hilarious, snow-filled, Christmas movie with a lighthearted, but sob-worthy ending. Who would have thought? :) Very impressive!
