Hedy: Do you think that when we die, we have to wear the clothes we died in for all of eternity?
Buck: No way. I bet we get those kickin' white robes like you see in the old cartoons.
Hedy: I look awful in white. Maybe Emma would let me borrow some sweats.
Buck: I bet you get a sweet-ass harp too.
Hedy: Hmmmm...
[scoffs]
Hedy: Do you have any idea how many human beings are estimated to have lived and died on Earth throughout all of time?

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 »

Great movie
23 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

I came to watch this movie because I'm a David Cross fan and it's the type of premise that appealed to me. I thought it did a great job of depicting the disaster w/out spending a lot of money. Special effects budget was probably somewhere around 200 bucks. It's structured similar to that Jodie Foster/John C. Reilly movie that came out recently, i.e. a couples get-together. Very funny but a lot of it might go over peoples heads if they're into more obvious comedies. It's starts easy, paced well throughout and had a great ending. A really good ending. I really want to mention my favorite parts but I wouldn't want to give any kind of spoiler. David Cross is a good barometer for whether or not you'd enjoy this. If you've heard his stand-up anyways. Watch it, and if you didn't like it, sorry. Just go watch Big Momma's House again and bask in your impeccable taste for comedy and superior intellect. Ciao homies.
