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.

Mischief, butt, and Emmanuelle Chriqui
6 October 2000 | by (The Beach, Jr.) – See all my reviews

Part "American Graffiti" (a few hours in the lives of several kids and the adults in their lives), part "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" (fun and life's lessons learned in a day off from school), part "Groundhog's Day" (the second film in what I hope will eventually be The Weatherman Trilogy featuring Chris Elliot in quirky roles), and part "A Christmas Story" (nostalgia and snow), "Snow Day" is a slap stick comedy that doesn't take itself seriously and offers harmless fun. Something for everyone in the family. Chevy Chase and Jean Smart have fairly small roles as the parents but they are a joy to watch. Stories involving younger kids reminded my of "Our Gang", the stories involving teens reminded me of "Ferris Buelle"r. Rated PG for mischief (say what?), and the word "butt." Emmanuelle Chriqui plays the most popular girl in school who is not only drop dead gorgeous but a girl next door type who is nice to everyone. She makes a terrific role model and it's refreshing to see this aspect of her character, which in most movies would have been written as all out bad.
