In the shots before she realizes she's lost an earring, it can clearly be seen that she's wearing the remaining earring in her left ear. In the following shot where she actually realizes that she's lost an earring, her left ear is suddenly bare and that's the one she feels. See more »

They Should Be Embarrassed!
14 March 2003 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This latest entry into straight-to-TV videos sees Tom Skerrit running for his life when disaster hits New York City.

Another predictable, pretentious natural disaster "thriller" made for TV, "Earthquake in New York" does nothing we have not seen before, and accomplishes zip.

Boring from start to finish.

1.5/5 stars -
