As Paleoclimatologist named Jack Hall is in Antartica, he discovers that a huge ice sheet has sheared off. But what he does not know is that this event will trigger a massive climate shift that will affect the world population. Meanwhile, his son Sam is with friends in New York to attend an event. There they discover that it has been raining non-stop for the past 3 weeks, and after a series of weather-related disasters begin to occur over the world, everybody realizes the world is entering a new Ice Age and the world population begins trying to evacuate to the warmer climates of the south. Jack makes a daring attempt to rescue his son and his friends who are stuck in New York and who have managed to survive not only a massive wave but also freezing cold temperatures that could possibly kill them.

This movie is easily the worst movie I have ever seen. Up until last night, "Dude Where's My Car" held the number one position, but then I viewed the sneak peek of "The Day After Tomorrow" and I have to hand the title over. This movie lacked so much I don't even know where to begin. The dialog alone was enough to make me scream. I feel that this movie insulted my intelligence, and I am sorry that I wasted two hours of my life on it. I want that time back. The only redeeming quality was when Jake Gyllenhaal took his clothes off. Even that lovely sight was not enough to make this a "good" or even "decent" movie. I was in agonizing pain through the whole movie because of how bad it was. It literally sucked all of the energy out of my body, and I felt the need to apologize to the friends that I brought with me. There were several points where we almost stood up and walked out.
I wish we had. Because we would not have missed a single good thing. The plot line was weak, dialog awful, special effects dismal, and has been completely over-hyped by the people who made it. I give this movie the award of Crapfest 2004.
