  Disaster movie maven Irwin Allen must be jealous from beyond the grave. In the '70s, his melodramatic, calamitous productions "The Towering Inferno" (a skyscraper on fire) and "The Poseidon Adventure" (a sinking ocean liner) were big hits. But his latter-day equivalent Roland Emmerich presided over a landmark-destroying interstellar invasion of Earth in "Independence Day," making Allen look like a piker. As director and co-writer of "The Day After Tomorrow," Emmerich doesn't bother with one measly building on fire or a sinking dinghy when he can ratchet up the fear and the nowhere-to-hide factor with a worldwide disaster, courtesy of ol' Ma Nature. Dedicated climatologist Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid) warns a science conference about the dangers of global warming, but little does he know that, in a matter of weeks, a superstorm will send giant tornadoes to destroy Hollywood (yay!) and usher in a near-instantaneous ice age that quick-freezes New York and other Northern Hemisphere locales. The digital special effects are 20,000 leagues better that those that brought tidal waves to Manhattan in '50s sci-fi matinees. Boilerplate plot turns such as a ludicrous quest by the D.C.-based Hall to rescue his son (Jake Gyllenhaal) in blizzard-choked Manhattan provoke scoffs and laughter, and that means fun. With Sela Ward and Ian Holm.
