Only Saw It Once 15 years Ago, 5 March 2015
Author: byson5186 from Allentown, PA

We've been having a lot of snowstorms recently out here on the East Coast. It is snowing right now. All this snow reminded me of this Nickelodeon movie, Snow Day. It also can remind you of when you're a kid and you seem to like snow more than now, as snow often times means NO SCHOOL. You can always wonder when we get snowstorms if there will be school. Well, I remember somebody once telling me something. I can't remember who told me, but it's sticked with me since I heard it. If the roads aren't clear, then activities get cancelled. If the roads are clear then things like school aren't cancelled. Yeah, it normally seems like snow is at it's worst when it is accumulating as you might not want to be traveling then. You can get stranded. But, once it stops snowing, it normally doesn't take a long time for the plows to clean up the snow.

This movie is a Nickelodeon movie that mostly gives a kids perspective on a snow day. Kids excited not to have school on a snow day, making the most of it and trying to stop the bad guy the plowman. I remember this movie being advertised, and I invited two of my friends for a sleepover and we saw this movie in the movie theaters. I was in 7th Grade at the time, and I even encouraged both of my parents to come. My Dad wasn't up to seeing it until I told him a commercial I saw on the movie which I thought was the plot of the movie, it turned out it wasn't. A commercial of it snowing all across the U.S. including Florida. The plot was where it was snowing in a specific region.

So yeah, part of the plot of the movie is kids having a snow day, along with certain other characters like a high school student, it's been so long since I've seen this movie I forget his name, but it shows his love story. Also, the snow day from an adults perspective in this movie. How the adults are reacting to the snow. We see the bad guy from the movie who is the plowman and like the school principal. The kids do everything they can to stop him to have more snow days.

Well, as an adult reviewing this movie years later I have to say some of my inner perceptions from the movie. The movie is a little cheesy and disgusting. The plowman is a disgusting character and so is one of the kids. Even at the time I saw this in 7th Grade, I thought it was more of a kid friendly Nick movie, like more for prepubescent kids. But, I wouldn't see how a lot of kids would really enjoy this. There are a couple of things that make this movie fake. For one do you think that many kids could go against the plowman, and not get in trouble with the law. Besides, there should be more than one plow. It is not just for the kids to go back to school, but the rest of the community to go to work. We all have our lives to live.

I have also always thought about why school is important besides educating kids. My whole life, I have thought about what would happen if kids did not go to school. For one, it's nice for kids to go as they make friends with other kids around the community that go to the same school. It gives them something to do during the day, as days off from school and work aren't always so good or appreciative if you have SO MANY. Also, a lot of their parents who will be making money it allows the parents to go to work without having to stay at home with their kids, or just allows separation time from kids to adults. When kids are little, they seem to prefer being around their parents and can cry when they're away. But, it teaches kids at a young age that they can't be around their parents all day, and that in life we have responsibilities of places to go to and things to do everyday. A lot of kids would not be productive during the days if they were not required to go to school. So, this movie is a little over exaggerated and not realistic movie of showing how kids are on snow days. The person who wrote it almost made it sound like school is bad, but they did it in a fun way.

This movie was still somewhat entertaining, but I have to give it a 3/10. I've seen scenes of the movie since I saw the movie. But, considering I didn't really like it when I saw it thinking it was cheesy, and thinks it might send the wrong message I give it a 3.
