When a snow day shuts down the whole town, the Wheeler family cuts loose. Hal makes a play for the most popular girl in his school, 10-year-old Natalie takes on the dreaded snowplow man, and Dad gets into a showdown with a rival meteorologist.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
(3) Snow Day was originally intended to be The Adventures of Pete and Pete the Movie, and although it was rewritten the Pete and Pete episode structure and tropes are evident throughout (so siblings Mark Webber and Zena Grey are analogs of Big Pete and Little Pete respectively). The whole thing is like a bigger and slightly overblown Adventures of Pete and Pete episode, and that’s why I like it!
Stupid, stupid, moronic and awful comedy that I watched when I was 10 years old (probably not even). I revisited it about 3 years ago, and it does not hold up at all. The only positive thing I can say about it, was that it gave Josh Peck his start in film, and I happen to like him quite a bit.
