I don't think anyone over the age of 12 should be so critical in rating this movie because it is intended for kids. If your child loves the t.v. channel Nickelodeon, they are sure to love this movie seeing as it's made by them. It stars teenagers, but is for kids. The teenage boy has a crush on the popular girl. When a snow day hits and his sister keeps saying "Anything can happen on a snow day," He decides to take his chances. He spends the whole day trying to impress her while his sister and her friends try to stop snow plow man from ruining it. Stars Chevy Chase as the dad and weather man. Other movies reccommended are "Harriett the Spy," "Good Burger," and "The Rugrat's Movie."

I'd give this a 5 star rating if there were a couple of changes to the story. Don't get me wrong, though, it's a fun movie to watch with the family. I've always liked Chevy Chase; and snow at Christmas time. So, if you don't get the snow you wanted for Christmas, watch this movie! There's plenty of it in here. Ages of kids in this one range from pre-school to pre-teen to teen.

You may have been looking at all of the reviews for this movie and getting mixed messages. First of all, it is a story about a group of kids trying to seek revenge because of the "Snow Plow Man" who has ruined every first snow day with no snow day to follow. (He ruined it by plowing the roads and making it so the kids could go to school after each snow day.) The older brother of one of the kids is trying to find a way to tell a popular girl that he likes her. The plot is that simple. The plot is not "meshed" it is just like any other movie, there is more than one thing going on, but it would only confuse you if you are an easily confused person (after all it was intended for a younger audience, and they get it!). There is no harsh or "adult" language used in the film, to my knowledge, and I have seen it twice. I liked the movie, and thought that it was fun, go ahead and buy it, if you have kids, or if you are just looking for a cute film with a clear message " anything can happen, when you really try"

I'm 30 years old. If I want funny, I go to Woody Allen. But, this film surprised me. It's not Tootsie, but if you're a parent, you're not looking for a night at the Oscars. You're looking for a fun family flick that can for once lay off the football-in-the-crotch jokes and less overt adult references we assume the kids don't catch. (I for one give the little lads a little more credit.) The movie's simple, creative, even smart, dealing with the challenges and pain of early adolescence in an honest but responsible way. Both Chevy Chase and Chris Elliot take it down a notch for an even, sure-footed film.

Great movie to watch when you have a case of the Winter Blues. This movie is fun for all ages. Best to watch on a cold winter day under the covers with a nice hot cup of hot chocolate. Also reminds me that it's nice every now and again to stay in when the weather is bad and just have some good quality time with your family and friends or even by yourself.

Okay, how did Chevy Chase agree to do this film? Why wasn't it funnier with him in it? I think the Law and Order episode he guest-starred in was funnier than this. Why did Zena Grey, the person we arguably see the most of, show up ninth in the cast list (at least on the film's wikipedia page)? How much restraint did Chris Elliott have to use to keep this film kid-friendly? All these questions remain unanswered. But for all its faults and unanswered questions, this film can be fun to watch on...well, a snow day. Zena Grey and her band of mischievous but determined children seek to extend an unexpected snow day by preventing the "evil" snow plow driver (Chris Elliott with a crow) from clearing the streets and keeping those big yellow busses from getting through. Meanwhile, Gray's older brother and the film's narrator, a "duel role" played by Mark Webber, tries to get the girl of his dreams, played by Emmanuelle Chriqui, with the aide of his best friend, played by Schuyler Fisk, who is love-struck herself. This film has some laughs, especially when Chris Elliott is at his hammiest behind the wheel of his snowplow. Some things seem off (i.e. the principal being pelted with snowballs no matter where he is...literally), but it's a kids' movie, so I'll let stuff like that go for the most part...I do wonder why the schools closed when the snow could easily be walked through for the most part. The only tall piles that appeared were made by the snowplow. I'm from New York and I've gone to school in worse conditions than this. Also, how did the kids have that, seemingly high-tech snow fort all set up and well-stocked? The snowstorm was pretty unexpected...not a lot of time to prepare. But in the end, if you and your kids are stuck at home during a snowstorm, go ahead and pop this DVD into your player.

This movie was originaly released in 2000 but I only just got the chance to see it now, six years later. I can't believe how young Josh Peck was back then. It hasn't really been that long and he currently looks like he's ready to graduate from high school! Then again with his acting career sky-rocketing he probably should, if he hasn't already. They were also lucky enough to get (gasp!) Chevy Chase and Chris Elliott! I love Chase because of the National Lampoon's Vacation movies. The main reason I'm writing this however is because of the minds behind it. It was co-written and co-produced by Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi, the same ones responsible for The Adventures Of Pete & Pete, which would explain it's dark legend based humor (i.e. Snowplow Man, evil killer of snow days everywhere), and kids in charge/ adults left in the dust (snow?) nature. Infact I wouldn't be surprised if this started out as a planned series, perhaps The Adventures Of Hal & Nat, (they were the main characters), with "Snow Day" being the first episode. Which reminds me, two Pete & Pete actors returned for Snow Day. Iggy Pop (Mr. Mecklenburg) is now Mr. Zellweger the owner of the ice skating rink and Damian Young (Bus Driver Stu Benedict) is Principal Weaver, who is consantly being attacked with snowballs. I have found many other Pete & Pete overtones in Snow Day as well. How many can you find? Surprisingly I only gave this three stars while I scored Pete & Pete a perfect five. Snow Day is pretty good but not as good as I thought it would be. It's good for a deep snowy day if you want to stay inside. Grab a hot coco make yourself comfortable and enjoy. You're sure to get a good laugh. (Update 1/17/07) Here's irony for you, I just found out that this was originaly planned to be the Pete & Pete movie. I suppose this would explain the show's overtones through out the movie.
