Recounting the plot of ``Jack Frost,'' the 1979 Rankin and Bass animated TV special about the prince of winter who gives being human a try, the Troubies cut and paste in songs from Janet Jackson, Freddie Jackson, the Jackson Five, Joe Jackson, Jackson Browne and -- of course -- about three-fourths of the ``Thriller'' album.
Jackson Frost's (played by Michelle Anne Johnson) romp with his dim-bulb beloved Elissa (Audrey Siegel) has a touch of meanness to it, and the plastic surgery and Botox addiction jokes -- well, how could you skip them -- get to be a bit much.
