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.Written by
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 »
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.
