There are some terrific one-liners, most of them insults...But this is a string of character gags, not a film, and the narrative barely putters along.

If you hate the Rogen/Apatow crew, you will hate this movie. For the rest of us, it's comedy Heaven.

If the conceit of actors playing themselves wears thin after the first 20 minutes or so, strap thyself in, because you're in for a very long night.

Luckily, when the jokes hit, they hit hard, and it's almost always at least entertaining.

This is The End is my kind of Rat Pack movie.
June 20, 2016
Seth Rogen, employing Appatow's Hollywood frat-house clown-crew, has made a unique, hilarious, bizarre, thoroughly disgusting, yet rather important movie for these times.

Come for the cameos, stay for Danny McBride, and come back again for the handful of genuinely deranged sequences that you'll hardly believe exist in a mainstream comedy.

"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.

This movie is flat out crazy.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10

The movie's very self-amusement makes it go down easy.

Probably the most self-indulgent wank in movie history, yet on occasion it's hilarious.

There's wonder here that films with quadruple the effects budget would kill for.
November 25, 2013
Writers Rogen and Goldberg run out of ideas before the second act and just half a** it until the end credits...
November 4, 2013
The loose structure lazily rushes out plot points late in the game
October 6, 2013
...runs on some delicious self-critique.

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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

...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.
Full Review | Original Score: 87/100

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.
