The entire city's population has vanished into thin air, leaving behind heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows.

In multiple scenes the chemical lights aren't apparently lit, despite having been just recently activated. They should remain lit for several hours.
However, it is made clear from quite early on in the movie that energy, whether it be in the form of electricity or combustion, isn't behaving in expected ways. It is therefore not unreasonable to assume chemical lights would be affected as well. See more »
You um, do you uh, your light...
What? Oh, uh, I'm such a moron.
How's the movie?
Ah you know, Adam Sandler gets in a mess, wife gets pissed, runs from some people... predictable, formulaic, fart jokes. You wouldn't like it.
Mmm. How would you know what I like?

Well this movie has a good cast and even a decent concept, but its missing something that would make it much,much better. A decent ending and 'some' explanation. While i'm sure the the writers wanted to leave an air of mystery at the end, there was just too little build up in between. The actors did a decent job with what they had, I mean it wasn't there fault. The problem was we really have no idea about anything going on in the movie all the way through. Even when we start start seeing it first hand there is still no explanation. Still, as it the movie itself was OK(I guess) and is deserving of its 6 rating. I'm just disappointed as it felt unfinished and rushed and I know it could've been so much better.
I definitely wouldn't advise paying for this movie, but if you come across it on cable and you have nothing to do, check it out.
