The film flirts with big ideas about adult relationships, but fails to locate any gravitas about its characters' existential or psychological crises.

An uneven, underwritten amalgam of comedy, drama and suspense that fails to pack a comedic, emotional or intellectual punch.

There's something about It's a Disaster that's ripe with potential, but a slack atmosphere populated with overeager actors grows tiring, lessening interest in their ultimate fate.

April 18, 2013
You need better dialogue than Berger supplies to help It's a Disaster make a liar out of its title.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 12, 2014
As visually interesting as nuclear fallout.
Full Review | Original Score: 44/100
April 12, 2013
[A] practically laugh-free vanity comedy with C-listers facing the apocalypse in the form of a nerve-gas attack on Los Angeles.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
April 9, 2013
Todd Berger's misguided black comedy should come with a complimentary hazmat suit for how poisonously unfunny it is.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 11, 2013
Berger's got some clever ideas, but he does not push far in exploring them. And aside from Cross, there is virtually no one to like among these self-involved suburbanites.

The movie may not always be a knee-slapper, but it's smart, creative, and oddly sweet. At the very least, you'll probably never think of brunch the same way again.
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.2/10

It's A Disaster takes on a topic that's on everyone's minds, and twists it into a darkly hilarious dramedy with heart.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: B
April 10, 2013
Perhaps the first great indie apocalypse potluck comedy.
April 1, 2013
There are plenty more surprises in store for the couples who brunch and the lucky audiences who get to watch them do so.
Full Review | Original Score: A
February 16, 2014
Full of ingenuity and genuine surprises, this movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 11, 2013
A darkly comic crowd-pleaser built around a strong cast and sharp writing.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
July 13, 2012
A pitch-perfect black comedy, catching just the right tone of people blowing small things out of proportion when a really big thing, like Armageddon, is happening.
Full Review | Original Score: 8
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
