Oscilloscope "It's a Disaster"

More and more films premiere on Video on Demand -- if they don't simply bypass a theatrical release altogether. Because VOD reviews are often scarce and hard to find, Criticwire created VODetails, a recurring column to help you figure out whether a new VOD release is worth your hard-earned dollar. This time we're looking at "It's a Disaster," a comedy about eight friends dealing with the possible end of the world -- not "Gigli."

Directors: Todd Berger

Cast: Rachel Boston, Kevin M. Brennan, David Cross

Criticwire Average: A- (out of 6 critics)

Official Synopsis: "Eight friends meet for their monthly "couples brunch." But what starts as an impromptu therapy session / airing of domestic grievances takes a sudden, catastrophic turn when the city falls victim to a mysterious attack. Trapped in the house and unsure of their fates, these seemingly normal people become increasingly unhinged to hilarious, surprising, and revealing results. 'It's a Disaster' is a fast-paced ensemble comedy about the worst brunch ever: the eggs are cold, the tensions are high, and the end is near."

Reviews:

Don Clinchy, Slackerwood:

"The funniest movie I've seen this year."

Kate Erbland, Film School Rejects:

"A bit of a marvel, an example of how to sew together disparate genres, tropes, themes, and tones to make one very funny, very entertaining final product."

Don Simpson, Smells Like Screen Spirit:

"An impeccably-written, dark-as-a-moonless-night satire that hearkens back to the glory days of classic comedy."

Lisa Marks, The Guardian:

"An absolute gem of a doomsday movie."

Kirk Honeycutt, Honeycutt's Hollywood:

"You smile with each well-delivered line and glory in an ensemble hitting all the marks."

"It's a Disaster" is now available on VOD. It opens in limited release on April 12th.
