    I'm almost kicking myself because I voted for both of these in the main grouping. If I had only voted for The Family Man (which is the movie I like far better) it would be moving on right now.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    I'm sorry. No offense to homeless people, but in the Day After Tomorrow, a bunch of very intelligent people take the advice of a homeless guy to leave their shelter and venture out into the freezing cold.

    The Family Man is one of Nic Cage's best performances and Tea Leoni here is absolutely angelic!

    Of course I can't find a clip but I love the bowling scene in that movie where he throws a gutter ball and all his teammates can't figure out why he's bowling so badly. Then on his second ball he gets like 7 pins and he gets soo excited and exclaims "victory!".

    It's kinda of an interesting angle into what's happening in the movie. He obviously has zero memories or skills of the "other" Jack Campbell and if you've never bowled before in your life, it's not quite as easy as it looks. As a life-long bowler, I really appreciated that scene.

    The Family Man. Cool movie with a great message.

    And yes, Tea Leoni is divine.

    TFM.

    I like TDAT, but too much family mush for a disaster movie, otherwise I might have voted for it here.
    I don't know about you all...I'm just here to fight the commies.

    The poll has closed. The Day After Tomorrow moves on and The Family Man is eliminated.

    I'm stunned...

    I certainly do, but I voted for TFM here (and 2012 was 100 times better than TDAT).
