Although Jack Frost is initially Frosty's enemy, or so he thinks, Frosty and his new wife Crystal tell him that they need him to survive. At that point enemies became friends and all was well. Until April, that is. At that point the minister (Parsen Brown) explained to Frosty, Crystal, Jack Frost and the kids why it isn't good for plants and trees if winter lasts forever. Then Frosty and Crystal went to the North Pole and Jack Frost left. Cooperation was shown. A great sequel with a bit of educational material.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (2 ):

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.
