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.

If only the Plot were as Deep as the Snow.....
13 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

Key Words: Cute / Kid Flic / So-So

There are some belly laughs for the adults in this one, and a plethora of snowball attack and "fart joke" situations that the kids in the audience all loved. But the plot was not as deep as the snow, and I longed for some more good situations that could have been worked into the action. All in all it was a light diversion with some cute kids and one nasty, dirty, "snow-plow man" that was more comic strip than reality.
