Storyline

At the outskirts of New Orleans a sewage tunnel caves in; city officials are less concerned about the worker who was killed then about possible repercussions on the impending Mardi Gras in the French Quarter, which is the tourist hight point of the year in Louisiana, so the priority is to prevent a panic. Still Allison Beauchamp, under whose responsibility public works fall in city hall, calls on her intimate friend, geologist Matt Andrews, who is extremely cautious since an accident only he blames himself for, to investigate. Shortly after another cave in, he finds and reports -even arranging radar material was opposed by the Mardi Gras lobby- that such sink holes are caused by the lingering on of a fire in underground tunnels trough peat layers, so there's no way of telling where and when more sink-holes will collapse, but it may happen all over the city, and two million tourists joining in the reveling increase the risk, so everyone is in danger.

Trivia

Mardi Gras in New Orleans shot in Toronto in December! See more »

Goofs

New Orleans is below sea level resulting in a high water table. If you dig a hole a few feet deep it will likely fill with water. Yet in this movie the tunnels are 60-feet below ground and are bone dry despite being well below the water table. See more »

WATCH OUT FOR THE KILLER COOKIE DOUGH!
14 May 2002 | by (Menzoberranzan, Fâerun) – See all my reviews

This movie seemed to be a Volcano sidekick, but after seeing it half n' half, I had to agree with myself that this was one of the funniest movies ever made... I don't know which catastrophy is worse, the movie or the one that the killer cookie dough is supposed to prevent... Someone hand me the chocolate chips, please!
