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.

Underrated, funny movie
10 December 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie at my cottage in 2001 because my little cousins begged to rent it. I groaned because it looked like any other Family Channel movie with cheesy lines, etc. However, I was very wrong. I enjoyed it thoroughly. It was recently advertised to be shown on TV again, and I felt nostalgic about it. But, I couldn't help thinking that since I was about 13 when I first saw it, my tastes might have changed, and I would hate it now. Again, I was definitely wrong.

This movie can appeal to any age group, because it has plot lines involving a wide range of ages. All the plot lines offer something funny and cute, even if sometimes unbelievable. But with a movie like this, you have to be able to suspend your grasp on reality for a couple hours.

If you're looking for a good, light movie to pass some time with, you will not be disappointed by this one. I recommend it to anyone.
