Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
