The day after tomorrow Remember if you will if you want to the 1996 blockbuster Independence Day starring Will Smith and Bill Pullman as tough guys battling intergalactic space aliens hell-bent on destroying earth for no apparent reason other than the satisfaction of superiority Now re-imagine that entertaining highly implausible film without the Fresh Prince Bill Pullman and all of those aliens but instead with Dennis Quaid as the hero and snow blizzards as the enemy and throw in the same level of apocalyptic insanity cut with a big helping of American cheese and youll get The Day After Tomorrow an awesome ungodly laughable and exciting disaster epic that plays with the globe like its one big etch-a-sketch with unpredictable weather patterns as the two white knobs It is a film so huge in its ambitions and so terribly overwrought in its murky sentimentalism that anything less than the complete annihilation of the Northern United States and an impossible subplot of a father searching for an abandoned hopelessly imperiled son would be too domesticated it lives on sweeping strokes of risk and pig-headedness and dies on its inability to stick it through not unlike Will Smith and his alien friends to the end of its long windswept frostbitten journey Afterwards youll be happy to see the sun again The Day After Tomorrow is a popcorn flick in every sense of the phrase It boasts a recognizable cast a strict formula fashioned a bit on 70s B-pictures like The Towering Inferno a big budget state-of-the-art computer effects a proven director Roland Emmerich also of Independence Day and lots and lots of destruction with little intelligence to level it off If you were to see one movie this summer and eschew all other forms of cinematic art than youd have wildly mixed feelings about the power of Hollywood One the one hand youd be tickled even titillated to see how men working behind computers can
