May 27, 2014The rapture finally happen but Anna Kendrick, her boyfriend and her family didnt get sent to heaven. Talking locusts,walking Wraith making them like pothead zombies and the occasional meteor shower are the few that plague Earth but its livable. The Beast A.K.A the Antichrist played by Craig Robinson wants to marry and basically sleep with Anna Kendrick. He gave her a choice to marry him or kill everyone she knows so she and her boyfriend came up with a plan.
A decent satire about the rapture with sarcastic humor by Anna Kendrick and Craig Robinson raunchy humor. A good cast and cameos, it could of been better but the movie did have moments especially with Craig Robinson and Anna Kendrick together. Rapture-Palooza comedic approach towards the rapture and religion work with some success.… Full Review »
Apr 24, 2014Pot smoking demons, "fowl-mouth" birds, and Ben of Seattle join together with Ben's girl, Lindsey, in battling the Anti-Christ, Craig Robinson, also known as "Earl". If the movie just stopped there, it would already be a comic hit, but the jokes come dangerously non-stop with the evil Earl at the helm of the Rapture's aftermath. It is true that a few quips are sophomoric and there are lots of 4-letter words, but that works in the context of a plot where wickedness envelopes the planet and those left behind adjust to the new norm with a bizarrely hilarious complacence. Beware of this evil misadventure since you might very well laugh yourself to death! (I nearly did.) While this flick goes well with beer and buddies, it is not recommended for those who are convinced that the earth has corners and has only been around for 6,000 years.… Full Review »
Dec 3, 2013This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I laughed a lot at this movie. Start to finish. Seeing Craig Fergeson
on the front cover seemed like a no brainer for me but after a quick
internet search I had second thoughts, which turned out to be wrong.
currently I believe IMDb scores this movie higher than sites like
criticker and flixster, I am not sure why as I felt it was much better
than the majority of comedies out there. Craig plays the anti-Christ
which gives him the opportunity to flood us with crude, inappropriate
one-liners every time he is on screen. There are also lots of other
recognizable actors who mostly play what the movie refers to as
"reapers", pot smoking half zombies with sarcastic humour. Good stuff.
The two leads are straight enough characters that keep the movie
grounded yet their reactions to some of the hilarious plagues early on
in the movie made for some good laughs. Overall I laughed constantly
and that is the point of a comedy so good job to this underrated gem.… Full Review »
