A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
All positive, as one would expect with a holiday movie. Children help Frosty find a solution for his loneliness, and the single naughty character is reformed through friendship.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this holiday movie is harmless fluff, just right for getting in the spirit of the season when the better-loved classics have already been viewed. The Jack Frost character may be mildly creepy for very young children. Characters demonstrate positive models of friendship and caring. This is one holiday special that doesn't even mention Christmas so it's suitable for families of many faith traditions.

Is It Any Good?
Like that fourth cookie from the holiday dessert table, this sequel may serve only as seasonal excess, but that's not always such a bad thing. This sequel may lack a real plot, but it also forgoes the sadness that made the first movie a bit heavy for younger kids.
One of the nice but quiet messages in the movie is that Frosty's magic doesn't just come from his hat, and that it's really love that gives the characters their spirit. That's a good message any time of the year, but especially at the holidays.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
