It's A Disaster

 March 5, 2013

As the apocalypse continues to disappoint with only the most minor of horrific meteor crashes, humanity only grows more blasé about its threatened extinction. That low-key shrug greeting the Earth’s attempts to shake us off forms the basis of comedies like Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World, the upcoming This Is The End, and now It’s A Disaster, in which apocalypse via a rash of dirty bombs threatens to destroy society as we know it, and, perhaps more importantly, really screws up the brunch plans of Julia Stiles, David Cross, and the friends they’re now trapped with as the world falls apart. The black comedy from The Scenesters director Todd Berger (that’s him in the hazmat suit) appears to touch on some similarly, dryly funny juxtapositions between terrible things and the terribly self-involved people who can barely be bothered to notice them, and the numerous reviews from those who caught it on the festival circuit seem to agree. You can judge for yourself on March 5 when it hits digitally and on video-on-demand—even if the world does end, because, like, whatever.
