    While "Snow Day" may evoke memories of past childhood experiences, it is well below average in terms of filmmaking. The plot is familiar and the acting is greatly sub-par, but it's all in good fun. "Snow Day" is most certainly not a good movie, but it's fairly harmless.

    full with a great cast but it never overcomes the one joke premise.

    "Snow Day" is a very kid-friendly film that celebrates the joy of the winter season, while also following every single romance cliche in the book. This film feels like half kid-comedy and half teen-soap. The acting is ham-handed and the script is thin, but it has just the right amount of heart and spirit to keep it afloat. The fan base of this film comes directly from kids between the ages of 8 and 14, where the jokes are understandable, before they become laughably cheesy. Many of these actors have gone on to do something big, and for me, this film is a big nostalgia piece. I have a blast watching these characters journey through an event-filled day off school. It's a dumb fun movie that everyone can turn their brains off and enjoy. There is just something about it that clicks.

    "Snow Day" centers around a bunch of kids who aren't sick, but they are sick of school. They live in upstate New York, so it would have to snow a whole lot for schools to be cancelled due to the white stuff. But it would be a dream come true if only classes were closed for a day or two. Well, that just happens when all of a sudden, it snows several inches, closing the schools. But how long will schools be closed? Oh yeah, and don't forget that anything can happen on a snow day. "Snow Day" has several subplots aside from schools just being closed. Chevy Chase stars as a meteorologist who envies a more popular weatherman, one guy will stop for nothing on his way to try and earn a date with his dreamgirl, and a few kids don't like the snow plow man. Since I live in the southeast, it doesn't take much more than just a few snow flakes to make everybody head to the grocery stores and to shut just about everything down. When I used to be in school, I had a few snow days, but none of them were as action-packed as the one in "Snow Day" the movie. "Snow Day" isn't a bad movie, but it is more geared towards the younger generation that can still enjoy the benefits of a real snow day, but adults can enjoy the movie too. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2001.
