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.
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).
Trivia: Near the beginning, an announcer states, "That's Medford's own Jack Frost Band." There are twelve U.S. cities named Medford, but there is no Medford in Colorado where the film is set, just a Medford Springs, which is literally a spring (not city). Medford, Oregon is probably the most well-known. Other states with a Medford: Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. The fictional Medford, Texas was also for a movie. (00:03:18)
Charlie: You the man.
Jack: No, I'm the snowman.
Charlie: Rory, you know what it's like to have no dad.
Rory Buck: Yeah, I do. It sucks! A snowdad is better than no dad.
Jack: You know, sometimes it's good having a big butt.
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?
