“..the movie's unrelenting visual drabness only adds to the unfortunate sense that while the end will come soon for them, it isn't coming anywhere near fast enough..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
“..the best - and worst - that could be said of the film is that it doesn't need that looming apocalypse..”
by Scott Tobias [NPR]

“..if you're going to name your movie "It's a Disaster," you'd better be awfully sure it's immune from audience agreement..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..as the apocalypse wears on, the comic couples continue being comic couples, and-save a pair of flat scenes in the middle-the movie maintains its effervescence..”
