Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's a lot of juvenile behavior coming from the patriarch of the Frost clan. He's chronically late, self-absorbed, and when in the form of a snowman, talks a lot about his "balls" and his "big butt."

Sexual Content

Mom and dad characters share long kisses and a moment in bed where mom is wearing a tight-fitting neglige. Some mild sexual references.


Dead of a parent in a car crash that seems rather glossed over. Some mild bully behavior and a snowball fight. The snowman's face can have a scary look about it, which youngest viewers might find frightening.


Mild enough, but frequent and juvenile. "Balls," "butt," "butt boy," "butt head," "ass," "dammit," "crap," "sucks."

Social Behavior

Charm is a primary characteristic of charlatans, and Jack Frost has charm in spades. He's looking out for number one, but is able to convince his family that he cares about them. Ultimately his wife and his son do the heavy lifting for him-- even when he returns to life as a snowman.


Mention of Jeep and Porsche cars. Denver sports franchises like the Avalanche and Broncos teams.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Charlie jokes with his dad about how his mom puts two martinis in his lunch box. Bar scenes are smokey and boozy.
