I picked this out of a row of "Suggestions for You" because I love a good global-catastrophe movie -- and I have to say, I'm delighted to spend the time watching it, because it's so utterly, utterly terrible. Looking for something to MST3K? Something to create a drinking game for? This is your movie!
It opens with a young couple making out in the back seat of a car in Georgetown. When a black SUV rolls up, blue lights flashing, and a couple of guys in dark suits drag the girl out of the car, identifying her as the President's daughter, her paramour blurts in bewilderment, "I've been dating the President's daughter??!?" Aaaaannnnd we rocket delightfully downhill from there. The characters are all ridiculously two-dimensional, the sets are '60s-era cheesy, and the acting is something any high school drama student would be proud of.
And the science? AWESOME.
If you're looking for a movie that makes a lick of sense, this isn't it. But if you're looking for something that'll make you howl with laughter, go ahead and rent this one.
Anxiously awaiting the sequel...
