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.

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.

Despite the strength of his writing and his cast, Berger still falters when it comes to the final act.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Full Review | 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.

Avi Offer
NYC Movie Guru
April 12, 2013
An uneven, underwritten amalgam of comedy, drama and suspense that fails to pack a comedic, emotional or intellectual punch.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.85/10

Dark end-of-the-world comedy is witty but mature.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
