Be very, very careful with the freezer trick. It doesn't work much more often than it does work. Also, be sure to get all the air out of the plastic bag before doing it - any moisture will condense on the drive and may ruin it further.
Once you remove it from the freezer it's essential to get it hooked up and running as fast as possible. Have any programs that you'll need set to autostart - so you'll minimize the time needed to access anything that you can recover. If there are particular things to recover - have the commands handy so you can enter them immediately. Time is of the essence here!
Humidity is your enemy here also - try it in as dry an area as possible. Pick a dry day rather than a rainy day if possible.
