An amusing premise yields few yuks.
[An] almost endearingly silly amuse bouche of a comedy depicting how the End of Days might play out in Seattle ...
It never does live up to its potential, instead becoming bogged down in a repellent character who is supposed to be savagely satirical but is really just tediously crass.
The laughs are consistent and the cast (including Rob Corddry, Paul Scheer and Ken Jeong as a very petty God) is a riot.
Matheson's script focuses its energy on small, wickedly funny gags, half of which Robinson seems to have sputtered out as improv.
Should please those who own Shaun of the Dead on Blu-ray, and can quote one-liners from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (the novel, not the film).
Robinson's grating performance becomes increasingly difficult to stomach...
Rapture-Palooza is borderline-heartbreaking in its wasted potential.
For a film about the apocalypse, Matheson's script felt a little bit too bland and mundane. Who would have thought the rapture could be so boring?
In a post-South Park world, lazy execution of a ribald, potentially controversial concept will not suffice -- especially not when the apocalypse is being handled with much more wit, vim and verve just across the megaplex.
Rapture-Palooza is a film worth sticking though as the third act goes for broke and delivers many of the story's biggest laughs, ending far stronger than it started.
Judgment day comedy is low on laughs, high on raunchy jokes.
There is a lot of funny ideas and great dialogue in this independent film, but perhaps because of the subject matter and obsession with being crude, the film suffers. Anna Kendrick basically plays the same character as usual, as does John Francis Daley, which is fine since they are portraying very nonplussed atheists taking this new world in little by little. A lot of the ideas were really solid, but the film also meanders around far too long. Craig Robinson, as much as I love him, was way too over the top and vulgar. Though I appreciated his performance for what it was, his scenes went on far too long and his vocabulary relied heavily on the profane. The ending was really well thought out and the overall message was nice, as atheism isn't given much credence. Still, the reliance on Robinson to carry most of this film makes it flounder under its own weight.
A match made in hell.
Good comedy! Let me start off by saying there's no need to go see this in the theater. It's Netflix material, for a rainy day or when you want something light and entertaining. "Rapture-Palooza" is the type of comedy that might not be suitable for just anyone. Especially if you are a devout religious fanatic. "Rapture-Palooza" takes on the rapture and biblical issues with a sarcastic and hilarious glove and just slaps it around. The movie was just fun and I constantly found myself laughing out loud despite the lack of complexity in the humor.
Two teens battle their way through a religious apocalypse on a mission to defeat the Antichrist.
