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.

Trivia

A real bank heist took place near the filming location and the felons drove right past the PA who immediately alerted everyone on set. The felons were surprised to see that they were driving through a film set, shortly before driving headlong into (and becoming hopelessly stuck in) a fake snow drift. The police immediately apprehended the two bumbling crooks to the amusement of all on set. See more »

Not Great, But Not Terrible.
25 July 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Snow Day" is a good family film that you should watch on a rainy day, or snowy day for that matter. Chris Elliot did a good job as "the snow plow man", and the rest of the younger cast was okay. The entertainment was good, and the acting wasn't too bad. In fact, some of the movie was funny. Overall, this is a good rainy Sunday movie. If your'e looking for a entertaining family film, you should rent this. But only take it for what it is. I give this film a 6/7 out of 10.
