A Great Movie

I think this is a great movie as well as the first one and they should do a third one! They left it open to do another and I think they should! 1 and 2 are just amazing movies that I think are great for children to see. I have watched them with my nieces and nephew and they loved them!

Is It Any Good?

Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The main reason Snow 2 works is because Cavanagh and Williams have an undeniable chemistry. Even more than in the first movie, Williams' goofiness and appealing charm make her seem like the perfect match to hapless Nick. It's a treat to watch Sandy find and guide Nick to the inevitable conclusion while simultaneously holding back from telling him who she is -- and to see Nick fall under her spell even more convincingly the second time around.

Lest it all sound too adult, rest assured that their chaste romance is accompanied by non-stop pratfalls and lots of reindeer humor. Buck is easy to dislike but not too threatening for young viewers. The saccharine-sweet ending and the fact that, in this movie, Christmas magic can even bring back the dead for a quick social visit, can be forgiven in light of the film's overall charm . And fans will be happy to know that the door is left wide open for Snow 3.
