      outrageous fun and a solid satire on fame

      You don't expect that a movie that purports to be a silly comedy about the end of the world happening to the "real" Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Jay Baruchel to have poignancy or a satirical message, but that is what you actually get here. As the directorial debut for Rogen and long-time collaborator Evan Goldberg, they really put the work into this. A 30 million dollar flick that looks bigger and bolder than it does, though weirder than you'd expect at times. Mostly, it's full of gross-out gags and tasteless jokes. But why then does it work so well, as a laugh-a-minute (even more sometimes) comedy that, up to a point, even takes it characters seriously? Because the actors have, naturally a rapore, and don't mind making knuckleheads of themselves. It's also an example of dumb being done smart, which can also be seen in Superbad and Knocked up and up to a point in The Green Hornet (The Interview, their follow-up, is even bolder and mostly works as well). Celebrity culture can be easy to lampoon, but the targets here are not exactly obscure or in-jokey, at least too much. When McBride shows up, practically unnanounced, eating all of the character's stashed-away-for-the-duration food at Franco's place and proceeds to mock them mercilessly, every line is a zinger and is funny even if you don't know (by some chance) that Hill got nominated for an Oscar for Moneyball. Rogen and Golderg rely on the character's behavior, and a knowingness that the characters do dumb things. The difference in quality between this and more super-low-brow stuff - let's say the Scary Movies flicks - is in the timing and quick-witted sponteneity and the embracing of the crude humor. When a demon shows up with a big swinging, uh, phallus, it certainly isn't subtle. But if just reading that you chuckle, then you know what you're in for. The actors are all game for being made jokes out of one another, and recognizing their idiocy especially in the back-drop that is presented here. And it's a real MOVIE as well, the filmmakers take the back-drop seriously and present it not as a joke - it can be rather terrifying to see some of the crazy things happen around these character (rapturing, holes in the ground sucking people in, fires, demons, crazy CGI creatures). Ultimately, This is the End is all in good fun, revels in the ups-and-downs of these characters and their conflicts that bring them down to base levels, and the mockery is knowing and clever. It's also stylish and fun, and shows young filmmakers really strapping in and taking people for a ride. It's the kind of flick you can watch over and over. Especially if you have been aching to see PIneapple Express 2 featuring Woody Harrelson.

      so, when I purchase this movie I was definitely in my comedy stage. I was watching a lot of movies with these actors in it. Things like Zack and Miri and Pineapple Express we're definitely on the playlist. To my surprise, this movie was just as funny if not more in some areas. I had forgotten completely how the storyline panned out, so I was pleasantly surprised At my reaction once I rewatch this film. Everybody gives pretty good performances comedy wise. There's a lot of guest stars in this. Also, a lot of shocking moments. If you're looking for something not to take so seriously, pick up this is the end. I promise you unless you're expecting a serious film you will enjoy this.

      I decided to pick this up after seeing the Disaster Artist. James Franco performance in this did not disappoint He basically makes fun of himself being an actor in Hollywood having a party and inviting all his celebrity friends, Seth Rohan, Danny McBride, Jonah Hill and Craig Robinson plus cameos fro Emma Watson and Michael Cera and a bunch of others It has graphic violence and crude jokes but is hilarious. It was written by Seth Rohan who wrote Superbad and Pineapple Express. If you liked those Movie but would like to see a raunchy adult comedy about the apocalypse then this is it.

      Pretty funny movie about the end of the world told from the perspective of comedians/actors in Los Angeles. Definitely enjoyed watching it overall. I really loved the fact that the actors don't even bother going by made up names for this. There's not much of a plot except that the apocalypse has come. However, that's where comedians shine. Even with their friends dying in front of them, the jokes keep rolling. The movie is pretty vulgar, so if you can't handle lots of jokes about male genetalia, then stay away. Watch it and you should enjoy it. Should definitely watch some of the outakes, too.

      This is the End is a fun parody with a cast you've come to know and love. Making fun of Apocalypse, Horror, SciFi and buddy films it still has a decent plot, good suspense, and plenty of surprises. A reunion of the Freaks and Geeks cast as well as most Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny MCBride, Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, and Channing Tatum films. Winner of twelve awards as well as an additional twelve nominations. There are lots of twists, laughs, and bizarre happenings. Worth a watch or two for the average viewer and worth owning for fans of the genre.

      A pretty funny spoof of Hollywood and music stars and the end of the world. It's got a great joke about making Pineapple Express 2 with Danny Mcbride. The movie is so funny because every actor plays themselves and James Franco has this undying love for Seth Rogen. So many jokes to mention that I will keep quiet about to save the spoilers. Some folks didn't like the film because they didn't get all the references which of course really helps to know. Anyways I love this film and would buy it all over again if I had to.

      It's a sloppy film that feels like it was LOADS of fun to make. The laughs are frequent (and frequently around some pretty R-rated material...this film is not for delicate constitutions). The budget is high enough to allow for some pretty amusing sight gags. The jokes and insults fly fast...this is certainly a movie that will reward a repeat viewing, as there is no way to catch everything the first time. And yet, as is often the case with Seth Rogan related comedies, the film has a heart as well.

      Cameos galore

      This is The End stars some of Hollywood's funniest actors in an ensemble comedy that has them playing fictionalized versions of themselves as the world ends. The result is possibly the funniest first half hour of a film in a very very long time. Though the whole set-up starts to wear thing and bog down a bit in the middle (these characters are almost miserable to watch as they try to survive the apocalypse), it picks back up again towards the end. Worth watching just for all the early cameos alone.
