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 name of Snowplowman (Chris Elliott), is Rodger Stubblefield. 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 »
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..
