Jack Frost (1998)

JACK FROST bites, but not at first.  Early scenes are diverting 
due to the strong chemistry between the leads and a staggering 
amount of snow on screen.  The pop songs on the soundtrack are 
promptly distracting, but the animatronic effects are very good, 
so they sorta cancel each other out.  What really melts enjoyment 
are the increasingly implausible (if not downright ridiculous) 
plot points (small dog pulls large snowman?) and one of *the* sin-
gle worst heart-tugging-times-ten endings that I can recall.  Even 
the misty-eyed members of the audience were complaining about that 
one...  Michael Keaton, Kelly Preston, and Joseph Cross star.  THE
FULL MONTY's Mark Addy also appears, for no good reason.  Troy 
Mller directs from a script credited to four folks.  (Rated "PG"/
101 min.)

Grade: D+
