Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): 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...

This was a rather nice surprise..., 31 January 2013
Author: Paul Magne Haakonsen from Denmark

"It's a Disaster" turned out to be anything but a disaster. This movie really took me by surprise, and turned out to be a really great movie. Especially because of the colorful and interesting characters that were portrayed in the movie.

The story is about a couples brunch that goes totally awry when a disaster strikes downtown, putting the couples patience, trust and friendship to the test.

There is a good amount of laughs in the movie, and they work out well because the scenes are nicely choreographed and planned. But what really makes this movie work is the characters in the movie, and the actors/actresses that were on the cast list to portray these characters. In my opinion, then America Ferrera and David Cross stood out from the others, and did a marvelous job. That being said, I am not saying that the rest of the cast didn't do a great job, far from it. The best character in the movie, however, was Hal Lousteau (played by Todd Berger). It was just a shame that he wasn't in the movie all that long.

The type of comedy found in "It's a Disaster" is the type of comedy that you'll either enjoy tremendously or not at all. Personally, I found it very enjoyable, and the movie really entertained me.

If you enjoy comedies and want something that is not overly Hollywood-mainstream, then give "It's a Disaster" a go - it might just be the thing you have been looking for.
