Bottom Line: Out the same year as Armageddon (yet another example of Hollywood's dueling movie mentality) this one directed by Mimi Leder (The Peacekeeper) is actually a deadly comet that cannot be stopped. Robert Duvall, Téa Leoni, Elijah Wood, Vanessa Redgrave and Maximilian Schell must reconcile with the end of the world when nuclear weapons fail to deter the killer celestial body, actually splitting it in two. One piece creates a cataclysmic tsunami, while the other piece is obliterated into smaller pieces, allowing the human race to survive – and Morgan Freeman to reign as president of the reconstruction. This one's pretty sappy, but the effects are still pretty cool.
Best Line: "Hey Leo, you're going to have more sex than anyone in our class!"
