Snow Day | 2000 | PG | - 2.3.1

This comedy follows a day in the life of students who battle the Snow Plow Man and try to win each other's hearts when school is closed due to a freak snow storm. With Chris Elliott, Mark Webber, Jean Smart, Chevy Chase, Zena Grey, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Kyle Alisharan, J. Adam Brown, Schuyler Fisk, Pam Grier, David Paetkau, Josh Peck, Iggy Pop, John Schneider, Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas, Michelle Trachtenberg, Jade Yorker and Damian Young. [1:29]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Three kisses. We see a few boys and girls in modest swim suits, a little boy in his underwear, a boy's long underwear when his pants are dropped down to his knees, a couple of girls in midriff-revealing shirts, a girl in a cleavage-revealing shirt and an illustration of a somewhat scantily clad woman on a snow plow.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Nearly all played for laughs. A snow mobile chase during which the vehicles bump into each others' sides; also, one of the riders is knocked off by a tree branch, another drives into a snow bank, another nearly hits a man and another drives into a soccer goal net. A man is hit in the head with a snowball, causing him to drive his snow plow into a parked car; also, a man purposely drives a snow plow into an igloo (a TV inside is smashed) and a boy is nearly hit with a snow plow and then almost completely buried in a pile of snow. A man sleds down a hill quickly, flies into the air and rolls down the hill. A boy throws another to the ground and puts his foot on the other's head, a woman hits the back of a boy's head, a man drags a boy through the snow by his legs, a dozing ice-skater flips over a low wall and a boy covers his head with a plastic lunch box and hits his head against a wall several times. A man tries to pull a chisel out of a boy's hand and they struggle for a little bit. Kids appear to briefly hit a snow plow with hockey sticks and a few drive away in it. A few people are pushed into the snow and a few throw snowballs at each other; one man is pelted by many during several scenes throughout the movie. Some pratfalls. A man is tied to a street sign and a boy is tied to the front of a snow plow. A boy lies in the middle of the street with ketchup on his shirt, pretending to be unconscious; a man dips his French fries into the ketchup and eats them. We see a yellow snow ball (it's implied that it's been soaked in urine) and hear a burp and several instances of flatulence; also, a man slobbers toothpaste down his chin and a boy spits out his food. A man dips a rag into toilet water as he's washing graffiti from a bathroom wall. It's implied that a boy was urinating outside (we see him standing next to a tree with his pants dropped to his knees). We see a close-up of a man's yellow-brown teeth.

LANGUAGE 1 - One scatological reference that is started but not finished and many instances of name-calling.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
