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

Trivia

This film was shot in September, 2011. Moreover, the filmmakers could only use the house this movie was shot in from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. because they were people living in said house. See more »

Goofs

Glen calls the final book of the Bible "Revelations" instead of its correct name "Revelation". A Bible History teacher would never make such a mistake. 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...

Crazy Credits

The finale of Tchiakovsky's 1812 Overture is heard just as the ending credits begin. This is a callback to the beginning of the movie when Glen turns the car radio off just before this segment begins. See more »

Another example of how the low budget under-the-radar movies are better then big Hollywood movies. HILARIOUS!!! I say A-.

"Johnny-crazy-balls over here is going to save us all from Armageddon." Every now and then a group of four couples get together for brunch at someone's house. Today is that day and Tracy (Stiles) is bringing her new boyfriend Glen (Cross) over to meet them for the first time. The conversation begins to unravel quickly and secrets come out that threaten to ruin the brunch, then they find out that the world may be coming to an end. This is another movie I didn't watch any of the previews for so I wasn't sure what to expect. I have to say that this is one of the funnies indi-comedies that I have seen and I laughed out loud just about the whole way through. The writing is so good and each character had his or her own little quirks which made it really fun to watch. This is the kind of movie where each joke builds on the next one and there is so much going on that you can't turn away nor do you want to. This is one of the funniest movies I have seen in awhile and I highly recommend seeing this. I loved it. Overall, another example of how the low budget under-the-radar movies are better then the big Hollywood blockbusters. I give it an A-.
