"I am so, so sorry."
1 stars

Iím sorry I watched this movie, Iím sorry to those who also watched this movie,and most of all, Iím sorry for those who made this movie. Itís not the worst movie ever, for sure, but I really wish I hadnít wasted 2 hours on it. Even if there was nothing else on. Why is this, you ask? Read on...

Jack Frost starts out as normal as can be, for a Micheal Keaton movie. It has the elements of a good little movie, with plot points and likeable characters galore. Then, somewhere along the line, possibly on an acid filled ski trip, something goes horribly awry. You think you know what youíre getting into with the whole ďMy dadís a snowmanĒ spiel. Youíre pretty much right.

Jack Frost is a member of the Jack Frost Band, a little blues outfit whoís very very close to being signed. He loves his family, but as he sayís later Ďall musicians are flakyí and he doesnít spend much time with them.
After betraying his sonís trust he promises a trip to the mountains for Christmas. As theyíre getting ready to go, he gets a call. His band is about to be signed, but for it to happen he has to be in a studio on Christmas day. He promises to come see his family after heís done, though.

He doesnít make it very far before he realizes he wants to be with his family instead. So, he turns around, in a blizzard, and heads towards the cabin. Guess what? He doesnít make it. Instead of stopping somewhere and waiting for the blizzard to wane, he barrels forward-into something hard and unforgiving.

Next year he is reincarnated as, get this: a snowman! Wicked little plot twist there. Never would have seen it coming. Needless to say, his familyís a little skeptical.

I donít know, I always wanted frozen water for my relatives.

I have nothing against Micheal Keaton. He is by no means a talent, but somehow he manages amiability. Kelly Preston I can deal with. But why, oh why did they agree to this? A travesty of a movie, trying to pull off magical, or even creative. Instead, it is implausible and ridiculous, and nearly offends the
audience with its bizarre concept.

A few scattered moments of humor kept me from turning it off, however. Perhaps it was my own bad sense.

Perhaps itís all my fault. Perhaps I shouldnít even have subjected myself to Jack Frost. But, I did. Itís time to learn from my mistakes.
