Storyline

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.

Trivia

Chevy Chase complained on The Rosie O'Donnell Show (1996) that when filming in Edmonton, Alberta, it was incredibly cold outside. In fact, the temperature throughout filming was 1 degree Celcius (34 degrees Fahrenheit) or higher everyday. Effects artists had to make fake 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 »

Goofs

When Tom Brandston bets his wife Laura Brandston $1 she won't answer the phone, you'll notice on the first shot that he has his wallet and is thumbing through it. Then in the next shot of him, he gets the wallet from his coat and pulls the bill out. See more »

A Real Loser
31 August 2000 | by gbheronSee all my reviews

Sometimes a truly terrible movie can fail in its target genre, such as horror or romance, but succeed as a comedy. They're "so bad they're good". Movies that are intended to be comedies have no such luck. When they fall flat, they just lie there and stink. SNOW DAY is such a movie. It's truly not funny, and as a result is an insipid, unfunny film. Avoid.
