Frosty is clever, well-written and cute.
I think you have a challenging line to toe: the humor seems like it would appeal most to 12 year olds, because of the slapstick, characters and puns, but then the movie might have to be sanitized a little for their parents. Anyway, it's not my place to worry about target demographics and marketing.
As a script, I think it definitely works. It's enjoyable to read. I loved the narration and the protagonists' sad-sack shtick.
Here are a couple minor nitpicks:
-Isn't "prick" a modern idiom?
-I love the witty repartee with the call girl in the police station. Which is why the bleeped expletives sort of ruin the atmosphere. Bleeping takes us out of the era.
-This is reading a lot like a kids' movie - in which case the hooker may be a no-go.
-Did they have heat packs in "the good old days?
-I'd put Cisco and Carmine at more risk throughout the script. The heat is on in the last act, but I'd try to put them in more danger from the get-go.
Overall, good job!

It never feels like he's in much danger, since he's so incredibly good at what he does. I know... read
A review of Off Broadway V.2by Michael Keller on 11/25/2013Off Broadway is a fun, light-hearted romp through the staving artist zeitgeist. Here are my running notes: -One conventionally introduces a new character in all caps, followed by an age in parenthesis. -“La vie Boheme!!!” Reading the synopsis, I was getting a RENT vibe. This sort of clinches it. -Maybe give the restaurant manager a better (more plausible) reason to fire... read
A review of The Keystoneby Michael Keller on 11/23/2013The Keystone is an intense, immersive horror/thriller. It was fun to read. Here are my running notes: -Good creepy opening, with a sort of Eyes Wide Shut hook. -Typo: “Daniel wakes up gasping for breath. He gets out of bed and walks pass dozens of unpacked moving boxes.” past -“I would of been happy with lunch.” would have -“You deviated from the regiment.” regimen -I’m... read
