1/10: When we get the snowman, my god if he’s the most uncharismatic, hideous movie creature I’ve ever seen.
1/10: Why did Michael Keaton [do] this movie? Did he need the money?
1/10: I don’t see how anyone can find some parts funny. An example of this is when Jack Frost and his kid are sliding down the hill and a bunch of kids are either falling to their deaths, or even get crushed, CRUSHED, by a snowball the size of the boulder from Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark!
1/10: My young nephew, Lonny, has been having nightmares about this flick. So will you.
1/10: I could not feel anything for this kid or his mother. The kids father dies and I just didn’t care. When he came back as a snowman, the son is more flabbergasted than happy.
1/10: FYI—Michael Keaton’s singing was surprisingly good (though this does NOT make up for the rest of the movie).
1/10: Nobody in the movie thinks. Everyone is an idiot.
2/10: Don’t we have enough parents who abandon their children in real life? I have news for people, if you suck as a parent, you don’t get to come back as a snowman and make it all better.
2/10: There’s one scene when Frost injures lots of innocent people, what did they ever do to him? At the end Frost turns back into a human but why couldn’t he do that before? it just does not make any sense.
3/10: Unfortunately this movie tries to be serious and cute, which is just about impossible when the star is an unintentionally creepy-looking CGI snowman. The fact that the kid in the movie shows very little surprise at seeing his dead father’s spirit trapped in the body of a snowman makes things even worse.
3/10: I knew this was going to be a long, hard time the minute I heard “Landslide” on the soundtrack.
10/10: After I watched this movie, I want to become a snowman when I die.
9/10: This movie is a really cute movie and a great one to watch around the holidays with your family. It’s not too cute though so that it becomes unlikable.
8/10: Jack the Snowman is the dad we all wish we had.
8/10: One reason why people blame this film for being so bad is that it uses cheesy puns that are supposed to make you laugh out loud; this is false. This movie is not supposed to be a hardcore comedy. Its puns are made to create small chuckles and to appreciate the fact the man who was no more is back to set his problems right.
7/10: A snowdad is better than no dad.
