Snow Day – Short Script Review (Available for Production)

Snow Day

A grumpy old man spends a snowy day with his granddaughter.

In these jaded times, it’s easy to forget how lovable movies can be. Remember the first time you saw It’s a Wonderful Life? Christmas Story? Mary Poppins or Chitty Chitty Bang Bang? Even if you’re a movie buff who mainlines Quentin Tarantino for breakfast, there’s something to be said for taking a break… and catching a heartwarming flick every once in awhile.

Snow Day is one of those stories. Cantankerous old Frank, 60s, isn’t the most pleasant person to spend time with… especially if you’re related to him. Unfortunately for his granddaughter Roxanne, Frank’s been charged with babysitting her for the day. Neither one’s looking forward to the experience. Barricaded inside the house on a winter’s day, the two resign themselves to an afternoon of crayons. But as snow comes down, the two bond. And Frank’s heart begins to thaw…

An intelligent little script with great dialogue, Snow Day is sweet and lovable. Sometimes, that’s exactly what we need.
