YMMV / Jack Frost (1998)


  • One-Scene Wonder: The chained-up Superman with Batman's head.
  • Special Effects Failure: The blend between the puppet snowman and the CGI snowman is... less than seamless.
    • Even disregarding that, neither method is particularly convincing. The puppet looks incredibly stiff and lifeless with a terrifying-looking face that moves in a jerky manner. The CGI model meanwhile, looks like something from before Jurassic Park. Which is especially odd as this movie uses the same company as that one.
  • Uncanny Valley: The snowman.
    Roger Ebert: To see the snowman is to dislike the snowman. It doesn't look like a snowman, anyway. It looks like a cheap snowman suit. When it moves, it doesn't glide it walks, but without feet, like it's creeping on its torso. It has anorexic tree limbs for arms, which spin through 360 degrees when it's throwing snowballs. It has a big, wide mouth that moves as if masticating Gummi Bears. And it's this kid's dad."
