Emmy Rossum accepted the role of Laura after Lindsay Lohan had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. This is the first time that Rossum has stepped In for a role originally meant for Lohan. This would later happen again with Poseidon (2006), another disaster film. See more »
It doesn't make sense for the group leaving the library to make their way to Staten Island via Brooklyn. (They could have just crossed the frozen harbor, for example). See more »
Whoever said "Tomorrow is another day"... didn't check the weather.
This movie takes a look at what the world would look like if the greenhouse effect and global warming continued at such levels that they resulted in worldwide catastrophe and disaster, including multiple hurricanes, tornadoes, tidal waves, floods and the beginning of the next Ice Age. At the center of the story is a paleoclimatologist Professor Jack Hall (Quaid), who tries to save the world from the effects of global warming while also trying to get to his son, Sam (Gyllenhaal), who was in New York City as part of a scholastic competition, when the city was overwhelmed by the chilling beginnings of the new Ice Age. In addition to all of the other challenges Dr. Hall faces, he's also going against the flow as humanity races south to warmer climes, and he's nearly the only one going north.
The special effects are excellent, and keep you entertained. While the script is below average and the acting is just OK. Overall its enjoyable but there just isn't much here except good effects.
