Michael Keaton slums in this family movie about a musician who is reincarnated as a snowman so he can continue being a father to his kids.
Undemanding children may enjoy it, but it really lacks enough magic for anyone else to immerse themselves into. The special effects aren't that great and it's all rather derivative of Raymond Briggs' story The Snowman, although it lacks all the charm.
Not to be confused with a 1997 film of the same name, which is a horror movie and totally inappropriate for children.
