Consensus: A clever black comedy, It's a Disaster is sometimes uneven but the sharp writing and stellar ensemble cast keeps the film on track.

Rick Groen
Globe and Mail

The humour may not be wickedly black, but once in a while it's amusingly beige.

Chicago Sun-Times

The movie's funniest touches are quiet flashes of character, expertly timed and nimbly played by a deft ensemble. "It's a Disaster" is consistently funny, but you wince more often than you laugh out loud.

Abby Olcese

The movie may not always be a knee-slapper, but it's smart, creative, and oddly sweet. At the very least, you'll probably never think of brunch the same way again.

You certainly wouldn't want to spend your last moments with this bunch, but a couple of hours watching them is enjoyable enough.

Berger never takes the camera more than a few yards outside the house, but that's fine; there's plenty going on inside, as characters carom off each other like billiard balls, slipping down pockets of misunderstanding and jealousy.

What an odd, funny, invigorating little movie.

Toronto Star

You need better dialogue than Berger supplies to help It's a Disaster make a liar out of its title.

Robert Abele
Los Angeles Times

The movie elicits knowing smiles more than laughs, even as it reveals a boundless observational awareness about the beefs and slights that, for the small-minded, must feel like everyday Armageddons.

A unique twist on a tired genre turns into a tired twist on a unique genre.
