  • Don't ask whether or not you should take The Day After Tomorrow seriously. Don't take it at all. show more

  • The spectacle, which is colossal and at times staggering to behold, begins within two minutes of the fade-in and keeps coming until the finish. I thought I'd seen it all. I hadn't. show more

  • Packed with digs at Bush-Cheney that even Democrats could find heavy-handed, the movie's lumbering approach reminds us that, OK, Emmerich did "Independence Day" -- but also 1998's "Godzilla," which began sinking back into the sea in week two. show more

    We saw this movie in the theater and i have to agree with Roger Ebert(his review) on this yet we liked the message of this movie to think seriously about these changes taking place in our environment and weather and now having experienced Hurricane Sandy and living in NYC i thought about this movie, it seems this movie is becoming more about reality than fantasy.

    This film is action packed, and viewers feel the drama of a glacier meltdown.As Sela Ward and Dennis Quaid try to save the planet from a freeze,people flock to warmer Mexican temperatures.I love such scenes, where we see Lady Liberty sink and people get stuck in the library.The World seems to be topsy turvy,and the battle is fun to watch.Bravo, Quaid and Ward !

    Loved this movie! Very touching when Dennis Quaid (the Father) and Jake Gyllenhaal (the Son) eventually find each other. Very intertaining!
