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.

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 »

I remember seeing this when it first came to video. Even at a young age, I knew something was wrong. The story it told was bizarre. It tries to balance teen-romantic comedy with Home Alone style kiddie hijinks. Those really don't go together. I can see how you can thread together multiple plots and characters during a single day (It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World did it perfectly so many years ago), but these filmmakers, and ESPECIALLY Nickelodeon weren't prepared to make something like that work. Chris Elliot's Snowplow Man is also such a hateful character. This was during the time when Chris Elliot was somehow in every comedy movie, because for some reason, everyone thought he was hilarious in There's Something About Mary (that would be half-right). Also, I don't dig Chevy Chase comedy. Not one bit. Snow Day is a conundrum.
