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.

Goofs

Near the 45 minute mark, after the Snowplow runs into a gray Plymouth Reliant, you can clearly see a CAA (Canadian Auto Association) sticker on the trunk. When the camera cuts back to a closer angle, you can see that the sticker has been peeled off. Obviously the producers didn't want the audience noticing the CAA sticker, which would be a dead giveaway that this movie was filmed in Canada. See more »

Ferris Bueller's Day Off for the Pre-Teen set
21 January 2001 | by sarah-103See all my reviews

This movie is "Ferris Buellier's Day Off" meets "American Grafitti" for the pre-teen set. It has no main plot, instead, it has several plots, like "Amiercan Grafitti", each plot focusing on a perticular kid. It has the light-hearted, anything can happen today, of "Ferris". Also like "Ferris", it takes place during the day.

If you are looking for a high-class intellecutal movie to watch at night, don't rent this. But if you are looking for a movie to watch with the kids in the afternoon, this is the movie. It is not the best movie ever made, but kids will like it.
