Don't be fooled... This was a huge disappointment given the cast involved. The characters don't really develop rather they flop along limply trying to fill in some sort of storyline that clearly the writers forgot. The funniest part may have been Julia Stiles character turning a cold shoulder on the late arrivals, but that's the best this movie has to offer.
A Refined Sense Of Dark Humor If you are expecting a marriage of Happy Gilmore and World War Z then you will be sorely disappointed. If you are expecting a slice-of-life piece on what would happen if several suburbanite couples were suddenly trapped inside a mutual friend's house during an unknown disaster of extreme proportions and how each of their seemingly perfect relationships just rip to shreds over the course of 90 socially agonizing minutes then THIS is the film for you. Personally, I found it a hilarious exhibition indeed.
This is still in theaters! Great deal! @Chris Dale: Remember this is still in the theaters, I know you're watching on a smaller screen, blah, blah, blah. Just remember you could be going to the theaters and watching for $7.50-15 per ticket! If you rent from Google and watch on a large screen TV you can have your several of your friends over and you can all watch for just $10. That's well worth the price!
Ehhh.. Movie was painful to watch because of the horrible story line and how annoying the dialog was between the characters. And the ending sucked! Definitely don't buy to watch this when its free on Netflix but still wouldn't recommend it!
