Review

Our Score
A "snow day" is that special day traditionally recognised in America when a freak blizzard causes an unexpected break from school. In this good-natured comedy, Mark Webber uses the opportunity to make a play for the glamorous Emmanuelle Chriqui, while his younger sister Zena Grey tries to keep the Snow-plowman (Chris Elliott) occupied so that her school remains closed. Director Chris Koch piles on the teen movie clichés with all the lumbering tenacity of Elliott's plough itself. Yet the picture is energetic enough to make it watchable if not particularly memorable.

Summary

A New York borough is shut down during a blizzard - and a group of cheeky local children steal a snowplough in a desperate attempt to ensure the roads to their school stay closed as long as possible. Meanwhile, parents all over the city struggle to work out what to do with their offspring. Comedy, starring Chris Elliott, Mark Webber, Jean Smart, Chevy Chase, Iggy Pop, Pam Grier and Zena Grey.
