Chevy Chase complained on The Rosie O'Donnell Show (1996) that when filming in Edmonton Alberta, Canada, it was incredibly cold outside. In fact, the temperature throughout filming was +1C (34F) or higher everyday. Effects artists actually had to *make* snow for the shooting. Then mayor of Edmonton, Bill Smith, sent a letter to Rosie O'Donnell telling the truth of the matter, which she read on air and laughed off - to the annoyance of most Edmontonians. See more »

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.
