Jonathan Taylor Thomas,
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.

The news studio where Chevy Chase reports his weather is an actual news studio in Edmonton, Alberta. A local Meteorologist used a similar board for reporting the weather, almost like what Chase acted out. In the distance, you can see the news anchors from Edmonton, who also starred in this movie.

I had high hopes for this movie before it first came out, noticing that the writers were none other than the masterminds behind "The Adv. of Pete & Pete". Having watched it, however, left me feeling underwhelmed. I think for anyone who was (is) a fan of P & P, watching this movie is like watching flashbacks from the show, albeit with less engaging characters and a so-so story. Messrs. McRobb and Viscardi even throw in the obligatory "slightly annoying sidekick kid named Wayne" in this movie, which I find to be quite sad.. anyway, here's to Pete & Pete, forever in our collective memories..
