My Dad the Snowman

Jack Frost (not to be confused with the previous year’s horror movie with the same name that’s also about a living snowman) is another one of my guilty pleasure Christmas movies. A man with the unfortunate name of Jack Frost, leaves his family to play a gig on Christmas. He ends up dying in a snowstorm and one year later he comes back to life as a snowman (thanks to a magic harmonica). Let the snowman hijinks ensue! Everything from snowman sledding to snowman hockey is seen. While I did feel some genuine warmth from the characters, most of it is just cheesy and pun filled. Some people would even say that this non-horror version of a living snowman is ugly and or creepy looking. I guess I can see that, but it doesn’t bother me. Like I said, Jack Frost is a guilty pleasure. I see it almost every Christmas time with no regrets whatsoever. It’s a 90’s kid’s movie about a living snowman, don’t expect the magic ofย Frosty the Snowman.
