Critic Reviews of "The Day After Tomorrow"New York Magazine/VultureAugust 07, 2004
Many of the clichés in this movie predate the last Ice Age.New YorkerAugust 01, 2004
A shambles of dud writing and dramatic inconsequence which left me determined to double my consumption of fossil fuels.Ebert & RoeperJune 07, 2004
... the situations are just so ludicrous that it really detracts from the quality of the special effects ...Chicago ReaderJune 04, 2004
An exceptionally stupid movie.New York ObserverJune 03, 2004
For all of its dire premonitions, foreshadowings of horror and easy targets for Jay Leno jokes, The Day After Tomorrow is eye-poppingly awesome and wonderfully entertaining.Village VoiceJune 01, 2004
It fulfills its summer air-conditioning duties with flippant ease, and its enjoyably cloddish attempts at political relevance add a fascinating layer of incongruity.Fat Guys at the MoviesJanuary 17, 2016
if you want to see Mother Nature kick some butt, this is your bagAntagony & EcstasyDecember 21, 2012
"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.Common Sense MediaDecember 28, 2010
Some cool special effects...that's about it.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
This is a popcorn film with a fact based concept, and that's all it is...CinefantastiqueJuly 14, 2008
The ecological theme is not advanced with any subtlety, but so what? The film works with the broad brushstrokes appropriate to a popular entertainment.Bangor Daily News (Maine)September 18, 2007
High-strung, melodramatic hogwash steeped in a measure of scientific fact. Emmerich takes it as seriously as he can and his movie, as a result, delivers more provocative fun than you might expect.
