Zippy Rapture-Palooza Should Please Those Who Own Shaun of the Dead on Blu-ray

Apparently, heaven's clerks do indeed keep track of who goes to church on Sunday, because when the Rapture comes, Lindsey (Anna Kendrick) and her boyfriend, Ben (John Francis Daley), fail to rise. They take the news pretty well, but then the torments begin, which include skies that rain blood, crows that cuss you out as you pass by, and the emergence of the Antichrist (Craig Robinson), who wants to marry Lindsey and raise a family of little beasts.

Always amusing, if never screamingly funny (there are worse things), this zippy little flick from director Paul Middleditch and writer Chris Matheson (Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure) 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).

Those same folks will surely relish the ace ensemble of not-quite-famous (and proud of it) comic actors who portray the hapless fools whom Lindsey and Ben enlist in their plot to foil the Devil. These include John Michael Higgins, Rob Corddry, Thomas Lennon, and Ana Gasteyer, who's very funny as Lindsey's hypercritical mom. She makes it to Heaven, only to be thrown out a day later. Clerical error.

I thought this movie was absolutely hilarious. It really shows how ludicrous such things like an apocalypse or rapture really are. Yet shockingly millions still actually belive in it. I understand the human instinct to need to be included or belong. But religion? Seriously? A white bearded man living on a cloud in a white dress and Sandals called god. Yet this dude god has never EVER been seen by anybody ever in the history of billions of years.. sorry. Past 6000 years. It's just utter garbage. The Bible. Probably one of the best fictional books ever written. Mary? Lol. I ask you. If a women claimed to her husband that she is pregnant yet never slept with any other man. Where do think that conversation will end? Lol. Correct. The divorce court for being a cheating slut. Yes mary was a cheating slut bag. That is the 100% absolute truth. Why? Because it's Scientifically impossible to conceive a child without sexual intercourse. People must of been so ridiculously gullible back then. And still are today in 2015. People still actually belive in every word the bible reads. Yet turn there heads to actual real scientific proof . Lol. Hahaha. Like I said. If you still belive it after watching this movie then you have problems. Again understood the need to belong. But man join a science club or computer club to go every Sunday rather than go worship a paedophile talking utter nonsense.
