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.

For anyone under 12 only
8 December 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

"Snow Day", Nickelodeon's latest effort at a live-action feature film, falls short from "Harriet The Spy". This film takes place around the ever-popular snow day, when kids and parents get the day off. Oh yeah, and anything can happen. The younger set face off against the "Snowplow Man", who can keep them from getting the second snow day, a rarity. The adults do their job, to an extent, and the teen set deals with crushes and life lessons. Since this is a family film, the snowplow story gets more attention, as seen in the commercials, but the teen bits should have got more focus. Anyone over 12 would be bored to tears with this one, but under 12 would have a blast. Actually, I just watched this one at home. On a snow day. Really.
