Bottom Line: This 1979 bomb pretty much represents the last of the all-star, Irwin Allen-style '70s disaster movies with an all-star cast (Allen scored hits with The Towering Inferno and The Poseidon Adventure, and the '70s were chock full of disaster films, from Earthquake to Airport and Tidal Wave). Sean Connery and Natalie Wood head this all-star cast who must bring war-mongering, Cold War countries Russian and the U.S. together to fend off a hurtling, five-mile-wide meteor with orbiting nukes. But politics block the ability to fully fend off the rock, and New York City takes it pretty hard, smashing the Twin Towers in the process.
Best Line: "If you think you can prevent it by burying your heads under a blanket of sh*t, fine. If you ever reach your decision I'll be in the bar across the street."
