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.

Fun, funny stuff
29 May 2002 | by (L.A.) – See all my reviews

This is a totally enjoyable film for people of all ages from the

creators of the brilliant Adventures of Pete and Pete. The writers

have a great sense of childhood and write with a sense of

nostalgia that gives the film its broad appeal. It follows the same

formula of their show with a pair of quirky siblings and narration

supplied by the older brother. I like the device of the film taking

place over one eventful day. All the young actors are wonderful and

feel like real kids and Chevy Chase and Chris Elliott are quite

funny. Also some cool cameos.
