Day After Tomorrow

Day After Tomorrow

Ebert says:

The special effects are on such an awesome scale that the movie works despite its cornball plotting. When tornados rip apart Los Angeles (not sparing the Hollywood sign), when a wall of water roars into New York, when a Russian tanker floats down a Manhattan street, when snow buries skyscrapers, when the crew of a space station can see nothing but violent storm systems -- well, you pay attention.

That's all I'm askin' for!

What's more, I find that the more cornball, optimistic, vapid and stupid the plot and people are in the face of all this adversity, the more I enjoy the destruction they face. But that's just me.
