I happened upon this movie on freeview over the Christmas period, and was particularly touched by the bubbly, family relationships portrayed between Jack Frost (Michael Keaton), his wife (Kelly Preston) and Charlie (young Joseph Cross) their son. For me, every aspect of the film took me on a light-hearted Christmas romp that set me up for the festive period. Its brief descent into tragedy was tastefully transformed into a fun-loving atmosphere that related to the father, son relationship prior to dad's untimely exit. In the opening scenes, young Joseph Cross is particularly adept in portraying a confident relationship with his contemporaries, but which understandably wanes with the loss of his father. However, the fun begins when Jack Frost (the voice of Michael Keaton) appears on the scene, diverting Charlie (Joseph Cross) from his dad's loss. Not withstanding the true meaning of Christmas, this film relates a refreshing tale that does not migrate too far from the spirit of Christmas, and I recommend and consider it to have been a worthy addition to my festive collection.
