5 Cool Movies to Watch on a Snow Day

As we gear up for what is going to be a snow day for many, it’s time to make sure we have the essentials. A couple of good flicks should be on your list. Check out our recommendations and feel free to add your suggestions below!


Cool Runnings



Based on a true story, the film is about the first ever Jamaican bobsled team with a big goal to make it to the Winter Olympics. Led by a disgraced coach Irving Blitzer, played by John Candy, the four Jamaican team members are introduced to the unfamiliar sport, new concepts and very cold weather for the first time.



The Shinning



For adults who want a scare, The Shinning is a good choice. Based on the classic novel by Stephen King, the 1980 film directed by Stanley Kubrick is often said to be the greatest horror film of all time. A father, played by Jack Nicholson along with his wife and son become caretakers of an isolated hotel with a disturbing past. As the son begins to see the horrifying details associated with the hotel, the father is taken over by an violently evil spirit and events take a frightful turn during the winter season.



Ice Age



The animated film with some very popular sequels tells the story of a sabertooth tiger, a sloth, and a mammoth who find a lost human child and must heroically brave the severe weather of the Ice Age to help return the infant to its father. While the film speaks to children, the voices of many big name stars such as Ray Romano, Jack Black and John Leguizamo attract many adults as well.



Home Alone



Arguably still one of America’s favorite family movies, the 1990 film is set during snowy Christmastime and tells of an 8 year-old boy whose large family accidentally leaves him home while they vacation in France. After discovering that two dimwitted burglars are targeting his home, he cleverly prepares traps and uses uncommon resources to protect himself against them.



Ferris Bueller’s Day Off



While this movie has nothing to do with snow or cold weather, it’s a timeless classic about the freedom of having the day off. Whenever I get a “day off,” I try to fit a viewing of FBDO in.
