Snow Day is a 2000 American comedy film by Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies.

Contents

Production

It was filmed in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, Edmonton and Calgary. It was originally planned to be a movie based on the television series The Adventures of Pete and Pete, but this idea was aborted and the film was rewritten as a stand-alone story.

Plot

The film focuses on a group of elementary students in Syracuse, New York, led by Natalie Brandston (Zena Grey), who get a snow day, and try to keep their school snowed-in and closed by stopping a snow plow driver known as "Snowplow man" from plowing the streets. Meanwhile, her older brother Hal (Mark Webber) tries to win the heart of high school sweetheart Claire Bonner (Emmanuelle Chriqui), with the help of his best friend, Lane Leonard (Schuyler Fisk). Also, their dad Tom Brandston (Chevy Chase) is a TV meteorologist who must face off against a rival meteorologist, Chad Symmonz (John Schneider), in order to have the right of continuing his weather career. Laura, the workaholic mother, is stuck at home with Randy, her mischievous son. Eventually, Natalie and her friends (Josh Peck, Jade Yorker) take over the plow and "unplow" the streets (move all the snow back in the way). After endless love demonstrations, Hal finds out he, in fact, loves Lane. Tom unmasks Chad on live TV, showing the viewers he is fake, winning his status back. And Laura (Jean Smart) gives up her work to just play with Randy.

Cast

This is the first of two films to star both Josh Peck and Zena Grey, the other being Max Keeble's Big Move, released the following year.
