Continuity mistake: In the scene where Charlie and the snowman (his dad) are getting chased by the bullies, the sled gets split in half into two sled pieces. But you can clearly see that in some parts of this scene, Charlie is riding a real snowboard, and in others he is riding the half piece of sled.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Snowman is in the snow plough and he is facing the large amount of snow but when he is stuck to the snow he has turned in the opposite direction.

Continuity mistake: After Jack dies his son is making a snowman that later becomes his dad . You briefly see a scarf around the snowman. A little after that he puts the same scarf on the snowman.

Visible crew/equipment: After they run out of snowballs because Jack scrapes ground, the bullies recover and prepare to chase the boy. To the right on the ground, the shadow of a crewmember moving can be seen when we see them getting back up.


Continuity mistake: The appearance of the brown house across the street from the Frost's house was L-shaped near the beginning of the movie but straight/long near the end when the hockey team van arrived. (00:09:15 - 01:16:30)


Continuity mistake: When the van with hockey team members arrives at Charlie's house, there are two boys in the back seat and Natalie is standing behind them, outside the van. When Charlie gets into the back seat, Natalie is behind the driver and the two boys apparently have moved to the third row seats. However, when the van is driving away, the two boys are not visible and the third row seats are not occupied. (There is an image of an oval near the passenger window, perhaps to give the image of a boy there). (01:15:32 - 01:17:09)


Other mistake: When Charlie is helping Jack watch TV through the window, his mother comes in and talks to him. By this point Charlie has stopped changing channels, but we can see the channel change effect once more.


Other mistake: When Natalie is standing outside of the hockey van near the driver's side passenger door, the side of the van below the window should be about to her shoulders but is only to her waist. The side is about one foot below the loop on the back of the driver's seat, but lines up with the loop after Natalie is seated in the van. (01:15:32 - 01:17:09)


Charlie: You the man.
Jack: No, I'm the snowman.

More quotes from Jack Frost

Trivia: You may notice that the snowman looks a little familiar, but doesn't quite look like Michael Keaton. This is because originally, George Clooney was supposed to star in the film, and the snowman was designed to look subtly like him. Clooney dropped out at the last minute and was replaced by Keaton, and the effects teams didn't have quite enough time to totally redesign the snowman. (They only had time to make a few minor tweaks, like his eyebrows).

Question: When they get chased by the other kids Charlie asks Jack (the living snowman) to turn them to ice to which Jack replies he "doesn't even got pickets". Was this some sort of joke? Could someone enlighten me?

Answer: He says "I don't even have pockets." He's just saying he doesn't have the power to zap them into ice.
