The basic premise is that a kid builds a snowman in a huge snowfall then it come to life and takes him on an adventure. Its entirely done to music and ...

Delightful video

Sweet video. It has no words, so any language-speaker can enjoy it. I have watched it with a 2 year old, a four year old, and adults. We all enjoyed it.

My kids loved it and hubby appreciated how I could see it ...

I swear that this was an iconic 80's kids' movie, but my husband is exactly my age and had no idea what I was talking about. Even the music is iconic, in my mind! My kids loved it and hubby appreciated how I could see it as a classic.

My two year old Grandson loves this movie! I love watching his facial expressions and trying to sing along with the music. It's priceless!

What we've got here is the dreaded bad-bad movie, as distinct from a good-bad movie like The Room or The Snowman that at least has enough verve and personality to be memorable in its awfulness. Gotti, meanwhile, is just bewildering mob-movie pastiche, ...
