    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    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. After an hour alone with them, we can’t help wishing The End would just arrive. show more

    The script excels at character-driven laughs, cerebral yet goofy, without resorting to sitcom stereotypes or genitalia-focused stupidity. show more

    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. show more

    Chicago Sun-Times

    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. It’s like a Christopher Guest improvisational farce with the volume turned down to 5. show more

    The humour may not be wickedly black, but once in a while it’s amusingly beige. show more

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

    As far as I’m concerned, death couldn’t arrive quickly enough for these eight stereotypically self-absorbed Los Angelenos gathered for Sunday brunch at which the hosts (Blaise Miller, Erinn Hayes) plan to announce the demise of their marriage. show more

    Bill Goodykoontz Arizona Republic

    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. show more

    Keith Uhlich Time Out New York

    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. show more

    Kimberley Jones Austin Chronicle

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