Goofs

When Diane Agostini realizes that she's lost one of her stud earrings, the remaining one switches from one ear to the other. 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 »

Quotes

Mayor Bruce Lincoln: Damn! Everyone thinks their crappola is most important.
Thomas Ahearn: I don't know. Maybe it's unavoidable. You know, we all get caught up in our roles. Renegade Fire Chief versus Big City Boss Mayor. I called you things and I never knew who you were.
Mayor Bruce Lincoln: I believe you called me an opportunistic con artist.
Thomas Ahearn: I regret that now.

Alternate Versions

Originally broadcast on CBS in 1999, one shot is removed from the video version that was on television. On CBS, after Danny opens the door and finds that the rest of the school has been demolished. We see a close up shot of him and then he closes the door and weakly slumps to the floor. In the video version after he opens the door, we see his face close up and then it cuts to the next scene. The reason for this is because the movie aired in two parts on television and when he slumps down the screen reads "TO BE CONTINUED" See more »

User Reviews

 
Good movie, reminiscent of the 70's disaster films!
8 September 2002 | by fiera121See all my reviews

For those of you who enjoyed the 'disaster' movies of the 70's such as The Towering Inferno and The Poseidon Adventure, you'll love this movie. Although it's quite long (just under three hours), my attention never wavered. It had several sub-plots going on simultaneously, including a love story, the resolution of an old rivalry, and a parent's fight to absolve herself of guilt over a two-year accident. Yet the storyline was never blurred or confusing and the characters seemed real to me. Perhaps most importantly, not all the little sub-plots had fairy-tale endings; some ended happily and some did not, but you don't know which is which until it happens. All in all, this is a movie well worth seeing!
