The movie advances a year in time, to the following Christmas. (This is where the movie becomes irritatingly ridiculous.) Jack reappears in his son's life, as a snowman. That's right, it's a walking, talking, SNOWMAN.
My problem is that I just couldn't get over the premise of a live snowman. If Jack had come back in some other way, I might have been able to go for it. If he had been reincarnated; if he had appeared as a ghost, as in the movie Ghost Dad; if he had possessed someone else's body; any of those would have been acceptable. But a snowman? A completely inanimate object? I don't think so. Maybe young children will go for that, but I wouldn't recommend this film for anyone else.
