Must See!

One of my alltime favorites. The Day After Tommorrow captured me from the beginning. Disappointing sequel but the original makes up for that. A few minor cuss words here and there, but that can't be helped. They're in all good films.

Weak plot, but great special effects

The Day After Tomorrow wasn't special. It was very good, but it was also very predictable. Not to mention inaccurate and extremely far-fetched. The characters are good role models, and they sacrifice many things to protect others and to keep their promises. They're all in all good role models. The whole plot is fairly rushed, and it is especially inaccurate how they play in the disasters. First they say it won't happen in their lifetime, then it'll happen in a couple months, and so on. On the plus side, there were great special effects in this movie, and that's what made it so good. All in all, The Day After Tomorrow was okay. Brittle plot and story, but amazing special effects and acting.

great movie, but with some violent scenes

this movie is a great educational thriller. i watched it in science class last year and we looked forward to it everyday. one thing that may bother people is some frozen bodies. the special effects are great, which makes all of the action scenes very realistic, but also might scare some younger viewers. one scene that might scare young viewers is when a helicopter goes down and when the pilot comes out, he freezes slowly until he is all ice. also, some realistic wounds are shown. as for romance, all there is is teens kissing. the only drug reference i can remember is when the men in the lab drink some whiskey. there are a few swears, but the language is not too bad. they refer to fox quite alot, but you dont notice it that much. all of the main characters are good role models, so you dont have to worry about that also. to sum it up, this is a great movie with some violent scenes. i recommend this for people that would understand what is going on (generally ages 8+).

A Decent Disaster Movie...Nothing That Good, but Nothing Bad

Parents need to know that THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW provides a decent movie experience, with implausible moments to the roof but some genuine thrills and chills. That is, if it's appropriate for your kids. This movie has little onscreen violence, but there are heaps of intense peril as all characters are put at the mercy of natural disasters they can't stop. People are frozen, whipped up by wind, and hit by falling debris. You see some frozen corpses as well, but there is only one graphic cut on a woman's leg. It is implied that a husband and wife are going to have sex (unbuttoning her blouse on a couch) but they are interrupted by the storm. There are also some "d**n"s and "a*s"s.

Good messages for a good movie

It's been awhile since I've seen it, but I love apolcolayse movies and this one's a keeper for me. Though, one part where tornados (I think) are raging through the city, a couple "make out" on an office couch. I think the woman's shirt showed some skin and the man's coat was unbuttoneed but they were clothed. It goes on for a couple of seconds then interruped. Then there is one kiss by a fireplace and some flirted but nothing worse that that. There is some cussing, mild, and the viloence is manageble. Though, the messages are great! There is few people in that movie that care about only themselves. Almost every character are risking their lives and in some cases, dying so that others may live. Interesting how in a disaster like this brings people togather to survive. It's gripping, sometimes predictable, but at points, will keep you on the edge of your seat, urging them on.
