Spencer and his little sister, Katherine, are flying to Pennsylvania for Christmas with their dad. While changing planes, a blizzard moves in and cancels all flights out of Hoover Airport: they must stay in a basement room with the other unaccompanied minors. Spencer and four others - a chubby boy, a non-stop-talker, a surly girl, and a rich kid - go AWOL and get in trouble with Mr. Porter, the Christmas-hating airport supervisor. The five misfits spend the night evading and enduring Porter's punishments, discovering all sorts of things in back rooms, making sure Katherine gets her visit from Santa, and finding among themselves a new kind of family.

After the fire department extinguishes the car fire at the gas station the car's parking lights are on. It is very unlikely the parking lights would still be working after the car exploded. In the very next scene the car's parking lights are off. See more »
I love watching this over and over again, it's really fun to watch. So i don't know why it got a 4.1/10 I think it should be higher (say about 6.8/10.) But it's people's decisions and they can like, love or hate it. I love the story and the characters, their real fun to watch cause havoc in the airport terminal. But I only watch it like around the winter time or just whenever I want to. This is a movie for all ages (babies to adults.)
But it's sad because there wasn't a sequel, and I know the reason. Why would the same kids be in an airport again (it could be different kids.) You never know they might do something similar to this. Anyways, this would be great to watch with the family and it's very enjoyable and very funny.
It's like Home Alone, except it's more kids and their not alone!
