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.

Chevy Chase complained on The Rosie O'Donnell Show (1996) that when filming in Edmonton Alberta, Canada, it was incredibly cold outside. In fact, the temperature throughout filming was +1C (34F) or higher everyday. Effects artists actually had to *make* snow for the shooting. Then mayor of Edmonton, Bill Smith, sent a letter to Rosie O'Donnell telling the truth of the matter, which she read on air and laughed off - to the annoyance of most Edmontonians. See more »
Near the 45 minute mark, after the Snowplow runs into a gray Plymouth Reliant, you can clearly see a CAA (Canadian Auto Association) sticker on the trunk. When the camera cuts back to a closer angle, you can see that the sticker has been peeled off. Obviously the producers didn't want the audience noticing the CAA sticker, which would be a dead giveaway that this movie was filmed in Canada. See more »
There are some belly laughs for the adults in this one, and a plethora of snowball attack and "fart joke" situations that the kids in the audience all loved. But the plot was not as deep as the snow, and I longed for some more good situations that could have been worked into the action. All in all it was a light diversion with some cute kids and one nasty, dirty, "snow-plow man" that was more comic strip than reality.
