I not only became uninterested, but I also stopped laughing.
And I wasn't the only one. Most of the audience seemed to be as bored
as I was with the film's un-funny humor. The only character I laughed at
was Chase's character and so, overall, I give the film 2 snowflakes out
Humor targed for kids

"Snow Day" isn't likely to take the country by storm, but with
separate storylines calculated to target kids, adolescents and young
adults, it should do respectable numbers. Each storyline pits good versus
bad, and this being a family film, it's not hard to guess which side
wins. However, there are plenty of obstacles on the path to victory, a
feature sure to generate some laughs.
There was enough insertion of PG-rated humor to win over the preteen
set, and teens will likely respond to some of the slapstick. Fans of
Chevy Chase should appreciate the good nature with which he and others
endure various indignities.
