About the Movie
In a small New Jersey town on the night of Orson Welles’s legendary 1938 War of the Worlds radio broadcast, the hoax that terrified millions into believing Martians were invading America, citizens face what they think is their last night on Earth. The over-worked town’s mayor Clark (Tony Hale, “Veep”) will take a chance on love. The neglected housewife, Lorraine (Heather Burns, “Manchester By The Sea”) will break free from her big-cheese husband (Sam Jaeger, “Parenthood”). The demure schoolteacher Peg (Anna Camp, “Pitch Perfect”) will become a warrior. The aimless reverend (Dan Bakkedahl, “Life in Pieces”) will rediscover his faith. The scared Sheriff (Mel Rodriguez, “The Last Man on Earth”) will find his courage. And the reclusive war veteran (Raymond J. Barry, “Training Day”) will become a hero as he convinces the town to fight the aliens. All these characters join forces for a final “battle” that leads to a surprising and hilarious outcome.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The film's narrative simplicity can be charming or frustrating, depending on your feelings about awkward dialogue and overreacting actors.
Fresh: [An] uneven but ultimately winning comedy ...
Rotten: The film wastes several talented performers with its low-key, rambling humor and one-dimensional characters.
Not funny 🙄
I saw this because I'm a big fan of the War of the Worlds original movie and was curious how they'd revamp it into an updated comedic version. Very disappointing and not funny- stupid. Sad because the idea was good. Fell far short 👽👎
How the hell can Rotten Tomatoes give a fresh rating to something under 50%?!😡
What? This movie is awesome I'll admit, and sure Rotten Tomatoes had given this movie a bad rating, but how can it still stay fresh. Does anybody see what the rating says, it's says 38%🍅. I'm done with movie critics, these people are seriously %#@$@!.
I paid $6.99 to rent this almost ok movie.
Great idea, just didn't work. The best line in this movie is "he needs to do the #2, but it's more like a 4". If you're hungover and can't function and want to watch something entertaining, well, this movie still doesn't deliver. I really wanted to like this, but I think giving it a 3 star rating, is very generous.
