Storyline

When an entire town in upstate New York is closed down by an unexpected snowfall, a "snow day" begins when a group of elementary school kids, led by Natalie Brandston, try to ensure that the schools stay closed by stopping a mechanical snowplow driver by trying to hijack his plow truck. Meanwhile, Natalie's big brother Hal is using this day to try to win the affections of Claire Bonner, the most popular girl in his high school, while Hal and Natalie's father Tom, a TV meteorologist, faces off against a rival meteorologist for weather coverage of the day's events.

Kids movie but not so bad really...well, it doesn't really suck.
11 March 2000 | by (Peoria, Illinois) – See all my reviews

OK, it's not great art and there's a lot of wasted energy in this one but it's got a lot of your basic kid themes with some good performers. I liked Zena Gray who plays the little girl in the piece and Emmanuelle Chriqui is stunning as the high school hottie. Chevy Chase does his best in a reserve role and you've got to love the rubbery Iggy Pop as the human target, principal Zellwegger. Too bad, there's not more of him in this flick. Oh, there's plenty I didn't care for--for one, Jean Smart's role as the busy mother who suddenly discovers her fat little son. All thanks to the power of snow! But, hey--you can't make a silk purse...
