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.

This movie is not just for Kids.
14 December 2002 | by poxy65See all my reviews

I hate to see people meticulously pine over the details of this marvelous film as if it were "The Last Temptation of Christ". It's a simple film with heart and hilarity. This film features some of the funniest children actors I've ever seen. It's painfully corny, yes, but a the same time it makes you laugh out loud and feel the characters. Watch this movie. It's pure hilarity and fun.
