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.

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.

I hate to see people meticulously pine over the details of this marvelous film as if it were "The Last Temptation of Christ". It's a simple film with heart and hilarity.

It's pure hilarity and fun.
