Unaccompanied Minors

Synopsis: Spencer and his little sister, Katherine, are flying to Pennsylvania for Christmas with their dad. While changing planes, a blizzard moves in and cancels all flights out of Hoover Airport: they must stay in a basement room with the other unaccompanied minors. Spencer and four others - a chubby boy, a non-stop-talker, a surly girl, and a rich kid - go AWOL and get in trouble with Mr. Porter, the Christmas-hating airport supervisor. The five misfits spend the night evading and enduring Porter's punishments, discovering all sorts of things in back rooms, making sure Katherine gets her visit from Santa, and finding among themselves a new kind of family.

Clothes, toys, electronics.

If someone's lost it, you can buy it.

Also don't forget...

Oh, no. Did you bite your tongue again?

When I wrote Santa,

I forgot to tell him...

...that we were gonna be at Dad's house

all the way in Pennsylvania.

How is he gonna find us now?

Oh, you mean that Santa guy

that you're scared of?

Him? I mean, he's not even gonn...

He'll find you. The tooth fairy

gave him directions.

She works with NORAD.

Spencer, NORAD says that Santa's

gonna be at this airport at 4:29.

So that means if we lived here,

Santa would bring me my new doll at 4:30.

Guys. We have a problem.

Attention, passengers. All flights

out of Hoover International Airport...

...have been suspended

due to blizzard conditions.

The weather service is forecasting

extremely heavy snow and high winds...

...until tomorrow morning...

My wife's gonna kill me, man.

I gotta get out of here.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Where are we going?

Somewhere really fun.

Are we going to prison?

No. We're going to have fun with all

the other kids who are flying by themselves.

Welcome to the

Unaccompanied Minors Room.

Oh, man.

It's like Lord of the Flies in here.

Help us!

Zach, we're flight attendants,

not riot police.

You've got to find someone else

to take over.

You guys, there is no one else.

The storm is huge.

Think of it like being in the air

with a normal passenger load...

...and secure all exits and discourage

anybody from going to the restroom.

- Oh, come on, you guys.

- Have fun, Zach!

Where's your Christmas spirit?

I mean, look at them, they're so cute.

I don't think Santa's

gonna find us in here.

I think I bought defective M&M's.

You know, some of these are W's.

Oh, come on, Val, lighten up, you know?

It's Christm...
