Storyline

INTER SCI climatologist Dr. David Kotzman has evidence that a shift in the Earth's polarity triggered the last Ice Age...in a single day. Now, it's happening again, and there's no time to escape. As the temperature plummets, Miami is blasted with snow and ice. Evacuation routes are jammed. The only chance David, his old flame Bryn, and a few other hopeful survivors have is to hole themselves up in a special chamber at INTER SCI. A desperate race for survival is ignited as nature's fury rages and the temperature plunges toward -459.67° F...ABSOLUTE ZERO! Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Did You Know?

Goofs

If it were even possible for earth's magnetic north and south poles to move to middle latitudes, it would not flip the earth's climate zones, as climate is governed by altitude and proximity to the poles via the tilt of the earth's axis which affords lower latitudes more direct sun rays. The arbitrary position of the magnetic north and south poles shifting to equatorial latitudes would have a dramatic effect on weather patterns, but would not cause polar regions to become tropical and equatorial regions to become frozen.

Quotes

AJ Carmichael: [covering Sophie's ears] I don't think we should talk about D-E-A-T-H in front of the K-I-D.
Bryn: The K-I-D is the Miami County spelling bee champion.

"The Day After Tomorrow" without a budget
4 August 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It's difficult to say where to start with this movie... The terrible script, the cartoon-like effects, the horrid acting, the stupid premise, the aging playboy playmate, the complete lack of scientific probability...

Take away the hand full of things that were good about "The day After Tomorrow" and pile on a clichéd script and no money, this is what you will get.

Quick plot: The earth's magnetic field switches polarity in a matter of hours, causing the temperature in Miami to drop to zero degrees Kelvin! This movie follows the intrepid band of researchers who said "I told you so!"

Shudder. Shiver. Shudder. Shudder.

This movie was so bad that I couldn't even watch it for the camp value. It was like watching a train wreck. You want to. But at some point, you just have to turn away from the carnage.
