Movie Reviews

(4 out of 5 stars)

"When I was little my favorite thing about the holidays was the TV specials -- Rudolph, Charlie Brown and Frosty the Snowman.

This new movie is a sweet and funny follow-up to the original Frosty.

"Legend of Frosty" is great because it's a tribute to the classic holiday stories, but it also has fun with the genre.

Just like the old specials, it's hosted by a celebrity narrator. But instead of Jimmy Durante or Burle Ives, we get Burt Reynolds -- ha! Perfect choice.

The town of Evergreen is a picture-perfect place. Fans of "The Iron Giant" will love the story of a 1950s town that needs to be shaken up by a larger-than-life character. (Adding to that retro-look, the villain is a dead-ringer for Adelai Stevenson and Sgt. Bilko!) Frosty challenges the rules and conformity of the adults simply by teaching kids to play. That might sound corny or over-simple, but it's true.

The plot/characters relate back to the original Frosty. I don't want to give anything away here, because one of my favorite things about the movie is the way they reveal the story. It's rare that a family film explores how cycles play out over generations.

One of the nice surprises of "Legend" is the relationship between a father and a son. It's surprisingly touching for a cartoon. (again, it reminds me of "The Iron Giant")

This is definitely a great movie for parents and kids to watch together. And the voices include actors from Spongebob!

I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars because the DVD extras weren't all that exciting. But don't buy it for the extras - get it for the movie. Makes an excellent double-feature with the original Frosty.

"My family and I enjoyed this movie, especially our 8 year old son. It portrays Frosty and his magic in the background of a surburban fiefdom. The voice of Burt Reynolds navigates us into the lives of several children yearning for some magic and fun amoungst the rigidness of societal norms. By the end we remember the fun of snowball fights, sledding, ice skating and appropriately breaking the rules. I recommend this movie to young families."
An instant classic!

"Legend of Frosty is a warm, endearing movie that is true to the original while being original in its own right. The story, characters, and animation were on par with my favorite holiday specials, and Burt Reynolds was perfect as the narrator. More importantly, the toughest critics of all, my kids, loved it more than I did. It's a great movie to watch with the whole family."

"I watched the DVD with my 7 year old daughter and I must say that I never thought I would enjoy it so much. And not only was the movie great, but so were the games. She just wanted to play them over and over again. I highly recommend this movie to everyone as it reminded me of my childhood."
