Good family fun for a snow day.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know there is some potty humor and some mild schoolyard language. Kids do some unwise and even dangerous things, like confronting an adult, pelting the principal with snowballs, rigging a show shelter with electricity, and driving a snowplow. But it's clear that the movie is a fantasy.

  • Families can talk about taking risks and setting priorities -- and about what kind of music is best for ice skating and what kinds of snowballs are the best for a snowball fight!
