    The story's outline may be familiar, but its emphasis and quality are not.

    Berger’s low-key, likable ensemble film flares with brilliance in its framing concept.

    Cross may not earn the broad recognition he deserves for his performance in It's a Disaster, a droll apocalypse comedy of exceedingly modest scale and even more modest commercial appeal. But it's still a master class in how to play the straight man right.

    Audiences may not care about this gang when the party starts, but once the dust settles, you’ve gotta admit, they made for pretty good company.

    Quirky, funny and a little claustrophobic (by design), it’s confident enough in what it’s trying to accomplish to take the chance on the title. And what he’s trying to accomplish is ambitious.

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

    Berger’s script is little more than a series of contrived comic vignettes that prevent the actors from creating believable characters, forcing them to contort to fit the low-rent farce.

    This movie is streaming on Netflix, perfect place to see it. I probably would have liked it a lot less if I'd spent money on it. But it was a great Friday night movie with my significant other. Lots of laughs in the movie, mixed with relationship issues that everyone has encountered one time or another. Expand

    A solid script and overall good performances that made me laugh several times leads to a mild recommendation. You do wonder if you would act remotely the way these characters do in their situation. My guess not likely. Collapse
