It was more fun watching the good guys battle aliens in Emmerich's "Independence Day" than this bunch of mopes who try to survive global warming. Paleoclimatologist Jack Hall (Quaid) predicts a new ice age and, sure enough, there's suddenly softball-sized hail blanketing Tokyo, L.A. gets leveled by tornadoes, New York is buried under ice and snow, and most of the northern hemisphere is wiped out just for fun. Jack's intrepid son Sam (Gyllenhaal)is trapped in Manhattan, riding out the weather with some friends in the New York Public Library and flirting with classmate Laura (Rossum). Meanwhile, Dad decides to snowshoe it from D.C. to NYC to rescue his boy. If you like watching familiar monuments destroyed (poor Lady Liberty), this special effects melodrama is for you.

I would hope global warming wouldn't happen as fast as it did in the movie! This movie was pretty good. I remember having to watch it in my earth/space class, twice! I do have to say that this movie kept me on the edge of my seat. There was some comedy through the movie as well as action. It's about a teenage boy who's in New York City with his classmates. While he's there, global warming occurs. It hits really fast. He finds himself trying to survive the horrible weather in the public library. Meanwhile, his dad is on his way to save him.
