‘Where will you be when disaster strikes?’

The Bubble is a 2022 American comedy film about a group of actors stuck inside a pandemic bubble at a hotel attempting to complete a film… Cliff Beasts 6: The Battle For Everest

Directed and co-produced by Judd Apatow (The King of Staten Island; Trainwreck; This Is 40; Funny People; Knocked Up; The 40-Year-Old Virgin) from a screenplay co-written with Pam Brady. Also produced by Andrew Dawson, Steve Dawson, Tim Inman, Dave King and Judah Miller.


The Apatow Productions movie stars Pedro Pascal, Karen Gillan, Leslie Mann, Iris Apatow, David Duchovny, Keegan-Michael Key and Vir Das.

” …The Bubble does have some moments of hilarity, terrific performances from the ensemble cast (with Apatow’s daughter Iris being the scene-stealer), and observations about pandemic life that ring a few bells. It isn’t a great picture, and it’s certainly not the director’s best work.” The Aisle Seat

“This could have been a good premise, but the basic idea of the pandemic and bubbling up itself now feels spurious and dated, and there just aren’t enough funny lines to carry this film through its punishing 126-minute running time.” ** out of ***** The Guardian
