Jack Frost 2: The Meltdown

The year is 1998. Michael Keaton plays an absent father who, after being tragically killed on his way home for Christmas, reincarnates in the form of a wisecracking snowman in order to re-connect with his traumatised son. Sounds like a movie with all the makings of a feelgood seasonal classic, right? Wrong...

A notorious festive turkey that critics dubbed 'grotesque' 'creepy' and 'almost unwatchable', Jack Frost received an equally chilly reception at the box office, and endures now only due to its reputation as one of the worst and most wrongheaded family movies ever made.

So, naturally, we just couldn't wait to talk about it. Tune into this week's podcast to hear us sound off on 15 minute musical sequences, tin-eared dialogue, the inexplicable logistics of possessing the body of a snowman and much more.
