I was just channel surfing, and noticed that Jack Frost is on. You know, that cute movie with Michael Keaton where his character dies and comes back as a snowman? Well, it reminded me of the time that DaddyGrandeur aka "weekday dad" went out to rent us Jack Frost so we could watch it as a family. Well, there are two movies (a few actually, but whatever) by that name. I think I was 12 or 13 at the time, when the Michael Keaton version had just been released on video.
We all hunkered down to watch (what we thought was) a cute family movie. So you can imagine my confusion when this happened [trigger warning for B-movie violence]:
I mean, even at that age I found it so ridiculous it was funny. And of course there's all kinds of plot-holes which add to the ridiculousness. But I think it was ten minutes into the movie when we all realized that Daddy Grandeur had made a mistake.
And now, thinking back on it, I'm wondering about DaddyGrandeur's error in movie rental. I mean, just look at the cover:
That's some awesome family-friendly entertainment! Oh well. Turns out this version is even more funny than the one that was actually trying to be funny. And it's one more thing we can tease DaddyGrandeur about.
