SEE THIS ONE WITH YOUR FAMILY!
29 November 2000 | by (Bakersfield, California) – See all my reviews

My three kids and I saw this film at a sneak preview during the Disney Craft Fair, and we really enjoyed it. It's basically about two junior high girls in Los Angeles who find a weather machine. After a few very funny mishaps with the dials, they make the machine create snow so that the schools will close early and they can get a headstart on Christmas vacation. The machine goes out of control, and a blizzard is created in Los Angeles! I don't want to give too much away, but this movie was really a lot of fun, and heart-felt, too. My 10 year old son was thrilled to discover that John Salley, one of his favorite basketball players, was in the film as a seven foot elf! It also starred Peter Scolari from "Bob Newhart" as a very funny boring weather man who is trying to figure out the source of the mysterious snow. I am surprised that Disney made this for cable, as it could easily have been a "real" movie. It has a great message about being together for the holidays, and lots of humor, too. I think most kids and their parents will really get a kick out it.
