This film is what the holidays are all about! Children, fun, heart, and love!
It's funny, dramatic, and has many great acting points!
The voices are excellent as well as the animation.... It will bring you to near tears as well as to broad smiles...
Santa with his Dual-wielding sword fighting style, the sandman with ultra sand magic, the tooth fairy who will Kill you with cuteness and the easter bunny with his boomerangs will all draw you in and make you love them...
The main Character Jack Frost is very endearing and never comes very close to becoming evil... he brings hope and gives the audience something to relate to while inspiring hope!!!
Great film! Must see!

Was not expecting much from this movie but my kids were very excited to see it. Actually really enjoyed it. It took a different spin on a story we've heard many times and made me really want to believe as well. Loved all the characters and the storyline was entertaining as well.

Something for everyone, these unorthodox reimaginings of childhood characters remind adults of the importance of innocence, wonder, and hope, while entertaining kids (even teens!) with beautifully presented animation and many hysterical and unexpected moments. There are a couple "darker" moments that may scare some 5 and under, but they're not out of place for a children's movie -- acknowledging childhood fears and coming to a conclusion that empowers them.

CGI Animation has come such a long way in only a few years, and this is the kind of movie that could only be done with it. It is aimed squarely at the under 12 set, which leaves the dialogue somewhat lacking for adults, but the storytelling is wonderful.
The character development is good, especially for the central character, Jack Frost, and for Bunny, definitely a counter-intuitive contrast. As my son, a design major, commented, the graphic design of the sets and backgrounds is remarkably good, feeling fully integrated into the story and very satisfying.
Definitely worth seeing, in spite of the slightly sticky sentimentality in it. The voice acting is fabulous, as is the integration between sound and images, and it is very entertaining and fun.

This was an enjoyable movie that had a decent number of emotional moments to it, be it happy or sad or even a little sappy. You feel for the heroes as well as the villain, and it is a rather unexpected ride throughout.
Hugh Jackman as the Easter Bunny was brilliant.
