Always amusing, if never screamingly funny.

Chris Matheson's script focuses its energy on small, wickedly funny gags, half of which Robinson seems to have sputtered out as improv.

The New York Times
Rapture-Palooza has a promising setup and a cast with a good track record of bringing the funny, yet it never does live up to its potential.

Silly enough for you? Did I mention that the immortal Ken Jeong of “The Hangover'' plays God, who gets mighty pissed when hubby accidentally shoots Jesus out of the sky?

More irrelevant than irreverent, the unworthy script from “Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure's” Chris Matheson might play to apocalyptically stoned college kids, but offers nothing in the way of broader social satire, suggesting the waste of a perfectly good Reckoning - not to mention the talents of a cast far funnier than the doom-and-gloom results suggest.

An amusing premise yields few yuks.
38
Its views on organized religion are so halfhearted and perfunctory as to make Kevin Smith's Dogma seem like a veritable master's class in theistic studies.
38
If you're going to commit to a blasphemous stoner comedy mocking the New Testament prophesy of the coming Rapture, you'd better go all in. Because halfway isn't funny.
30
The film overflows with inspired comic ideas that fizzle and die in execution like a marathon fireworks display of nothing but duds.
