- 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."
