Plot Summary

Directed by Roland Emmerich, this mega-budget, special-effects-laden epic revolves around the onset of an international series of crises brought on by the long-term results of the greenhouse effect. At the eye of the storm is paleoclimatologist (a professor dedicated to the study of weather patterns throughout the ages) Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid), who voluntarily takes on the preservation of the world in the dawn of the next ice age and all the disaster that comes along with it — violent hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tidal waves, massive floods, etc. Hall must also contact his son, Sam (Jake Gyllenhaal), who was in the middle of an academic competition in New York City when the chaos begun. In addition to facing the largest-scale onslaught of natural catastrophes in the history of humankind, Jack, in his journey north, must contend with the masses fleeing south in an attempt to resettle in a warmer climate. The Day After Tomorrow also features Emmy Rossum, Sela Ward, and Joe Cobden.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The only truly scary thing about this doomsday popcorn flick is the momumental ineptitude of the acting, writing and directing. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Rotten: A big, dumb movie, another Hollywood entertainment that, instead of tweaking and teasing our brains for fun, leaves us feeling thick and stupid. – Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: It fulfills its summer air-conditioning duties with flippant ease, and its enjoyably cloddish attempts at political relevance add a fascinating layer of incongruity. – Dennis Lim, Village Voice, Jun 2, 2004

Fresh: The Day After Tomorrow isn't satisfying in every way, but in the ways that really matter, it's one superior disaster movie. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010
