Storyline

Eight friends meet for their monthly couples brunch. But what starts as an impromptu therapy session/airing of domestic grievances takes a sudden, catastrophic turn when the city falls victim to a mysterious attack. Trapped in the house and unsure of their fates, these seemingly normal people become increasingly unhinged to surprising results. Written by Oscilloscope Pictures

Goofs

Glen's belief that he will go to heaven when dies and his motivation for lethally drugging the wine is so the others will too. Being a biblical historian and devout believer it seems very strange that he fails to realize that his plan will result in his breaking the commandment "Thou Shall not kill" several times over and his own participation would be considered suicide which are both grievous sins in the Christian faith that guarantee his being condemned to hell. The sin of murder is negated by Tracy telling every one about the plan but their acceptance would still be seen as suicide meaning they would be condemned to hell anyway. See more »

Quotes

Tracy: You know, I never went to Europe. Never. Not once. I never even went to Montreal, which I hear is very European. I never went scuba diving. I never went to the ballet. I've never been in love. I've never even watched The Wire.
Glen: All of those things are overrated. Except for The Wire. That's really good. Last season's not very good, but...

Great Surprise
27 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

I was surfing through Netflix, where this movie has a nearly 5-star rating, and watched because of that (very few Netflix movies rank that high). I didn't even read the preview.

I figured it was a comedy because David Cross is in it, but he seemed at first to be playing such a straight role that I thought this was a drama. It ALMOST lost me until the moment the characters learned they were all about to die, at which point I couldn't stop laughing!

It begins with several couples talking about inane and stupid things, much like an episode of Seinfeld. Just go with it because your reward is to come.

It's as if Jerry, Elaine, George, Newman and Kramer are facing the end of the world, joined by Elaine's new boyfriend, David Cross. These characters all face death with the same focus on petty minutiae in their final hours as the Seinfeld cast would. It's hilarious!
