The young couple try their best to lead a normal life surrounded by talking locusts, blood rain showers, and pot-smoking wraiths. But when the Anti-Christ (Robinson) makes his home base in their neighborhood, Lindsey finds herself the object of his affection. With the help of her family, friends, and a lawn-mowing zombie neighbor, the young couple set off to stop the Anti-Christ from taking her as his bride... and just maybe,… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An amusing premise yields few yuks."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"The laughs are consistent and the cast (including Rob Corddry, Paul Scheer and Ken Jeong as a very petty God) is a riot."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Rapture-Palooza is borderline-heartbreaking in its wasted potential."
‑ Nathan Rabin, The Dissolve
"Judgment day comedy is low on laughs, high on raunchy jokes."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"Sure, there are elements that don't work...but for the most part, 'Rapture-palooza' offers a lot of good, goofy stuff."
‑ Bill Gibron, EntertainmentTell
"[An] almost endearingly silly amuse bouche of a comedy depicting how the End of Days might play out in Seattle ..."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Matheson's script focuses its energy on small, wickedly funny gags, half of which Robinson seems to have sputtered out as improv."
‑ Amy Nicholson, Los Angeles Times
"For a film about the apocalypse, Matheson's script felt a little bit too bland and mundane. Who would have thought the rapture could be so boring?"
‑ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
"Matheson aims to build a farce, but the feature doesn't follow his lead, blowing some interesting asides of insanity on trendy, flaccid riffing."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"There are a few good, R-rated laughs, thanks largely to a cast that makes the most of the material at hand. Still, it ends up being more amusing than outright hilarious."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"It never does live up to its potential, instead becoming bogged down in a repellent character who is supposed to be savagely satirical but is really just tediously crass."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"Should please those who own Shaun of the Dead on Blu-ray, and can quote one-liners from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (the novel, not the film)."
‑ Chuck Wilson, Village Voice
"In a post-South Park world, lazy execution of a ribald, potentially controversial concept will not suffice -- especially not when the apocalypse is being handled with much more wit, vim and verve just across the megaplex."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"Rapture-Palooza assembles a reliable cast of comics and then proceeds to saddle them with truly middling material."
‑ Ethan Alter, Television Without Pity
"I wanted more satire, less booty humor. And the film really needed a more-engaged heroine. Kendrick goes so laid back that she looks like she's about to fall asleep."
‑ Brian Tallerico, HollywoodChicago.com
