It’s a Disaster

It's a Disaster A recurring couples’ Sunday brunch-party of would-be hipsters is the setting for Todd Berger’s amusing end-of-the-world satire. Whether you’re the kind of survivor who would cannibalize your best friend or merely roast marshmallow’s on his or her burning flesh, “It’s a Disaster” shows you’re a hypocrite either way.

Four couples congregate at the color-coordinated home of Emma (Erinn Hayes) and Pete (Blaise Miller). Their marriage is on the rocks. Tracy (Julia Stiles) hopes to impress her latest romantic interest Glen (David Cross). Pete is more concerned with taking Glen’s intellectual inventory with hypothetical questions about things like ripping off Band-Aids or passing along good or bad news. Indeed, the news that surrounds their get-together is bad. Meanwhile, downtown a series of dirty bombs goes off. Sealed inside the house together, the group reveals personal foibles that include an affinity for swinging, sing-alongs, and the proper pronunciation of “duct” tape. “It’s a Disaster” wouldn’t be a bad choice for the last movie you see before life on Earth comes to a crashing halt.

Rated R. 88 mins. (B) (Three Stars - out of five/no halves)
