There's wonder here that films with quadruple the effects budget would kill for.

The film is more guileful than it looks, even though the narrative is nuts ...

No comedy classic, then, but a good natured and engaging slice of goonish self-mockery.

This Is the End, true to its subject matter, is as funny as hell.

Crass, flimsily plotted, and self-referential to the point of narcissistic personality disorder. For those willing to tolerate such defects, however, it is also very, very funny.

Writers Rogen and Goldberg run out of ideas before the second act and just half a** it until the end credits...

...runs on some delicious self-critique.

October 6, 2013 Full Review Source: LarsenOnFilm

The best thing about This Is the End is playing "spot-the-celebrity" in the early frames. Do this, and you'll find everyone from Jason Segel to David Krumholtz. If all that talent were put to better use, the film might have been worth watching.

October 1, 2013 Full Review Source: Reno Gazette-Journal

That Rogen and Goldberg make one of the Backstreet Boys' more annoying yesteryear hit singles something you giddily sing along to is a measure of just how on point the satire is--that, or that it truly *is* the end of the world.

September 14, 2013 Full Review Source:

Enjoyable, time-killing piece of throwaway Friday-night pap... It's broad, stupid fun that, against all odds, ends up coagulating into an actual story with a point.

August 20, 2013 Full Review Source: 3AW

...a very savvy send up of the way we perceive celebrities as vapid and self-involved ciphers who are so often flattered and coddled that they come to accept applause as their due.

If your tolerance for druggy banter and puerile sex gags is low then the idea of facing Armageddon with Rogen and his chums will probably strike you as hell.

At its best it's a film about people getting lost in the fiction of their own creations.

If Fast and Furious 6 was stupid in the bad way, This is the End is stupid in the best and funniest way.

Near-the-knuckle comedy that proves self-indulgent laughs, when done right, can be hilarious.

A funny self-aware critique of the actors' indulgences - along with several violent deaths, demonic monsters and dick jokes. There are lots of dick jokes.

This is the End is one of the most fun movies I've seen in ages. It's a silly extravaganza, a huge bunch of nonsense, but, boy, it's entertaining ... This film is one big in-joke, but it's a very good one.

Never reaches the heights of earlier collaborations Superbad and Pineapple Express. However, it has a belligerent, depraved, coked-up Michael Cera, and that is a treat unique to this film and this film only, so it's certainly worth your time.

July 15, 2013 Full Review Source: Quickflix

While bewildering for those unfamiliar with the Judd Apatow clan, for fans, this raunchy, daring and gleeful comedy comes up trumps.

Audience Reviews for This Is the End

funny enough, and the hilarious cameos certainly didn't hurt, but it's nowhere near as good as Neighbors.

The apocalypse, again, but this time its for some B-list actors (you know them all, seen them all before, and there's a little of been there, done that in the humor department too) all partying down when the bleep hits the fan: who will live, who will die? Do we care anyway?
Well, after a minute, yes, won over not only with the entertaining scenario but its pretty good execution as well. And the fact that we know all of them works to draw us in. They're sort of our friends too after a bit, and the constant mention of previously seen films adds to that known quality dimension. Its a fun film from the group, and very nearly an endorsement for pot legalization everywhere in the States.

Incredibly zany "This Is the End" is an unexpected treat. What could have been a bunch of affected A-listers parading around for no reason except to self-indulge themselves is instead a pretty hilarious view of the end of the world.

In between all the self-referential jokes is an actual storyline with dramatic payoff and substantive situations.
