The Day After Tomorrow

The Day After Tomorrow
Jack Hall is a climatologist doing for the government, often times at the detriment with his relationship with his son, Sam. When a polar ice shelf suddenly cracks, Jack and his friend, paleoclimatologist, Terry Rapson, realize that a brewing super storm will result in a new Ice Age over parts of the world with millions of unsuspecting people in its path. One of the areas affected by the deadly storm is New York City where Jack’s son, Sam, is trapped with his friends. Jack begins the long trek to the city, braving peril and the treacherous elements to rescue his son. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Day After Tomorrow”.

∙ Sam is carrying a large duffel bag over his left shoulder when he tells the others “we have to get higher”. The scene cuts to the mother and child trapped in the taxi and then back to Sam and his friends as they walk between the taxis. The rear view of Sam shows that he’s no longer carrying the duffel bag.

∙ Jack is meeting with the President. When Jacks says “evacuate everyone south of that line”, the red line he draws on the map cut into West Virginia and Maryland (not Virginia) and ends a few inches in the Atlantic Ocean. In the close-up, when Jack answers “it’s too late for them”, the line cuts across the lower section of West Virginia, into Virginia and slightly into the Atlantic Ocean. The line changes again in the close-up of Jack when he says “pray”.

∙ CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! At the end of the movie, when they’re in the helicopter, there is a close-up of the group showing them sitting (from left to right): Brian, J.D., Laura and Sam with J.D. sitting on Brian’s left. It cuts to a view of the helicopters landing on the rooftops and then back to a close-up of Brian and J.D. where J.D. is now sitting on Brian’s right.

“The Day After Tomorrow” (2004) stars Dennis Quaid, Jake Gyllenhaal, Emmy Rossum, Sela Ward, Austin Nichols, Arjay Smith and Ian Holm. It runs 124 minutes and is rated PG-13 for intense situations of peril.
