Ages it's appropriate for: 7 and up
What it's about: When Charlie's distant father dies in a car wreck, he comes back a year later when his son plays a "magic harmonica" in the form of a snowman. Throughout the heartwarming and hilarious film the two rekindle their broken relationship, giving them both closure.
What to look out for: I'm still not over Michael Keaton's car crash nearly 20 years later, and your kid may never be either. That, and the fact that even though he eventually puts things right with Charlie (as a snowman), he has to go back to being a normal dead person. As he disappears (but not before appearing as Michael Keaton once more) the camera pans and "Landslide" begins to play through the credits — it's devastating, but so worth the heartbreak.
