"This Is the End" does not crack jokes at the expense of Christianity. It does, however, consider both kicking a severed head around like a football and the prospect of raping Emma Watson to be hilarious.
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.
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.
