‑ Roger Ebert, At the Movies
"Good family fun for a snow day."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Puts you to sleep more often than it tickles your funny bone."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"An amusing, but utterly forgettable matinee."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire

‑ William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"The whole film seems pretty plastic, as if written by a computer."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
" could do a lot worse."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"In its attempt to recreate the elation a blizzard brings to children, "Snowday" slips and slides all over itself."
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
"Chris Koch's plodding direction is every bit as uninspired as Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi's script."
‑ Bruce Feld, Film Journal International
"Unsure what it wants to be, and never firmly finds its footing."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"Most of the material in the movie is so familiar it makes your teeth itch."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"if only it snowed a couple more jokes"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"For those with the misfortune to see the inept new comedy Snow Day, the pleasant feelings associated with the title phrase may well be eradicated forever."
‑ Scott Von Doviak,
"The attempted humor is a hodgepodge of predictable slapstick and TV-cartoon cliche."
‑ James Hebert, San Diego Union-Tribune
"Given the choice of seeing this movie again or eating the yellow snow . . . pass the catsup."
‑ Tony Toscano, KUTV-TV
