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.

Did You Know?


This is actually the second movie in which Chevy Chase goes down a snow covered hill screaming out of control, while people around him are enjoying the same hill. The same thing happened to him in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989), albeit at a much faster speed. See more »

Very dumb, even for kids
13 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

I saw Snow Day not expecting too much, but getting even less than I thought. It is a incredibly stupid, unfunny and almost saddening kids movie (any movie where they have the great punk man Iggy Pop into classical music and wearing a neckbrace is a sacrilege). The film follows a kid (Mark Webber) who wants a popular girl (who is one of the hottest real teen girls I've seen in a while) on a day when all the schools are closed. Not the worst romantic plot, but with kids fighting against a maniacal snowplowman who is embodied by a overacted Chris Elliot. A terrible movie which kids could like or hate depending though the parents are definate, which if you think is helped by7 Chevy Chase should sometime rent Caddyshack or Vacation. D
