The Day After Tomorrow

Occassionally, I will have either an incredibly positive or negative reaction to a book, play or movie and I will be moved, who knows why, to write a bit about it here. Well, I just saw "The Day After Tomorrow" and it is totally lame. Yes the special effects are impressive, but the story, the dialog, the way the characters react, is so stilted, so ridiculous, that it annoyed me after 5 minutes in the movie.

And I am not objecting on scientific grounds. I don't know enough about the science to judge whether or not its realistic, semi-plausible, or totally nutty, but I am willing to suspend disbelief. And by the way, about the special effects: why do these folks standing around in sub zero temparatures in street not even look cold?
