Full of ingenuity and genuine surprises, this movie.
| Original Score: 4/5
A more witty, nuanced, subtle, adult version of "This is the End."
| Original Score: B
As visually interesting as nuclear fallout.
| Original Score: 44/100
A smart character-driven droll comedy disaster pic.
The title does not describe the quality of this low-budget dark comedy.
A quirky comedy of manners about the last party you would ever want to attend.
| Original Score: 7/10
If you can look past the awkwardness of humor based on being unexpectedly trapped in a house during a major emergency, it's an acutely observed, frequently funny piece of work.
| Original Score: B-
Despite the strength of his writing and his cast, Berger still falters when it comes to the final act.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
While Berger's approach to satire and social commentary is somewhat scattershot, his reference-heavy dialogue is sharp enough to allow each cast member to make an impression.
| Original Score: 7.2/10
Berger's one to watch.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
The humour may not be wickedly black, but once in a while it's amusingly beige.
You certainly wouldn't want to spend your last moments with this bunch, but a couple of hours watching them is enjoyable enough.
| Original Score: 3/5
Berger peppers the dialogue with enough clever lines and observational humor about the nature of relationships and human fallibility to make for an entertaining and darkly comic film.
You need better dialogue than Berger supplies to help It's a Disaster make a liar out of its title.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
The movie's funniest touches are quiet flashes of character, expertly timed and nimbly played by a deft ensemble. "It's a Disaster" is consistently funny, but you wince more often than you laugh out loud.
| Original Score: 3/4
"It's a Disaster" wouldn't be a bad choice for the last movie you see before life on Earth comes to a crashing halt.
An uneven, underwritten amalgam of comedy, drama and suspense that fails to pack a comedic, emotional or intellectual punch.
| Original Score: 5.85/10
Dark end-of-the-world comedy is witty but mature.
A character-driven drama that mixes humor and seriousness when eight people are forced to take stock of their options as a nerve-gas cloud heads their way.
The apocalypse is the catalyst for a dissection of modern self-absorption; there's nothing like a major disaster to rouse you from a technologically-induced zombie state.
