A quirky comedy of manners about the last party you would ever want to attend.

April 25, 2013
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.

April 19, 2013
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.

Berger's one to watch.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 19, 2013
The humour may not be wickedly black, but once in a while it's amusingly beige.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 18, 2013
You certainly wouldn't want to spend your last moments with this bunch, but a couple of hours watching them is enjoyable enough.

April 18, 2013
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.

April 18, 2013
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

April 12, 2013
Dark end-of-the-world comedy is witty but mature.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 12, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 12, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 12, 2013
It's not laugh-out-loud hysterical, but the ensemble -- Cross and the always-amusing Hayes in particular -- establishes a just-zany-enough rapport that's enjoyable rather than irritating.
April 12, 2013
Berger never takes the camera more than a few yards outside the house, but that's fine; there's plenty going on inside, as characters carom off each other like billiard balls, slipping down pockets of misunderstanding and jealousy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
