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.

Goofs

The people who went out of the INTER SCI building should have been frozen solid since the temperatures were extremely low. Their suits were not enough to keep them warm and to insulate them from the extreme temperature. See more »

Hilariously Bad
1 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

I rented this gem knowing it was a Day After Tomorrow clone. I expected it to be campy and bad.

The special effects were hilarious and just bad. Some times it would be an entire CG shot that looks like some freshman's work with making a 3D model at art school.

Though the best part of the movie is the constant statement that "Science is Never Wrong." If I was playing a drinking game I would have been plastered by the end of this movie. Even the little kid in the movie said science is never wrong.

The physics in this movie are laughable at best. The idea that the last ice age started 10,000 years ago and lasted 1000 years is hilarious.

It was as if the writers, producers and actors couldn't be bothered to check a history book about the ice age anywhere.

Let alone the idea of absolute zero.

All I can say is they must have made this movie for what it was, a great no-brainer campy stupid flick.
