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 »

"Pete & Pete" as a mediocre movie
23 September 2003 | by (Selangor, Malaysia) – See all my reviews

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..
