Category 7 : The End of the World ★★ 2005

Delightfully inept disaster pic finds FEMA head Judith Carr (sexy Gershon) trying to pinpoint the cause of deadly weather that's causing worldwide havoc. She turns to ex-beau and discredited scientist Ross (Daddo) for answers while fighting the bureaucrats. Meanwhile, scientist Faith (Doherty) teams up with Tornado Tommy (Quaid) to track the storms up close and personal. The subplots are especially lame, although Brolin as an evangelist is a hoot. 169m/C DVD .
