It turns out the real question director Roland Emmerich's movie raises isn't about how much this film's pseudo-science teases us, but how much bad drama it's willing to blow our way.

A disaster movie has to be about more than the cool effects.

Everything we've come to expect from a Roland Emmerich film.

it becomes evident that Emmerich is as ill-adept at painting personal moments as he is as a maestro at crafting large-scale disaster images.

Roland Emmerich's global warming disaster flick is big, dumb and flat, but hard to really hate.

... the situations are just so ludicrous that it really detracts from the quality of the special effects ...

A popcorn movie that turns into an eat-your-vegetables movie.

Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, Sean William Scott ... Any one of these performers could have provided Emmerich's disaster with the comic relief it so desperately lacks.

[A] study in ineptitude.

may terrify its American viewers into doing something that the British have always enjoyed - talking about the weather.

This Day is truly a disaster, just not the kind the studio had in mind

Mother Nature is a *****, but another Ice Age would at least put sermonizing blockbuster filmmaking like this on deep freeze.

There's a mechanical feel to it, with little wit or imagination. It's just a recital of the disaster-flick images we've seen so many times before.

You can finally say this about the notion that everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it: Well, Roland Emmerich has done something about it. Something stupid, but still ... something.

[Roland Emmerich] again wipes out enormous swaths of humanity and real estate, but this time the overall tone is funereal, sober.

"Trite" really isn't doing justice to the degree to which [the film] has not a single thought, character, or line of dialogue that hadn't been run into the ground by the beginning of the '80s.

Don't even get me started on the hilarity of the scene where a bunch of people outrun a blast of freezing air and close the doors on it.
