REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..with the plot already spoiled by the Book of Revelations, Chris Matheson's script focuses its energy on small, wickedly funny gags, half of which Robinson seems to have sputtered out as improv..”
by Amy Nicholson [LA Times]

“..the laughs are consistent and the cast is a riot..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
1.5 of 4

“..is a high-concept comedy that plays out within a cartoonish, post-apocalyptic milieu, but adheres too closely to hackneyed rom-com conventions..”
by Drew Hunt [Slant Magazine]
1.5 of 4

“..halfway isn't funny..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]
“..a comedy about life after the Rapture whose occasional chuckles aren't nearly proportionate to the level of comic talent in the cast..”
