A bonkers idea executed with supreme confidence, This Is The End unleashes a bombardment of crowdpleasing hysteria and could be this summer's biggest surprise.

Comedies don't get much more self-referential than this film, in which a bunch of old friends get together and play themselves facing a biblical-style apocalypse.

Blithe, beautifully acted and refreshingly free of fancy SFX, This Is The End pokes fun at generic film-making, without ever seeming self-righteous.

A cheerfully crass, enjoyably puerile entertainment that doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel as much as it blows the barrel to pieces with a sawn-off shotgun.

In-jokes about celebrity culture and what these stars might really be like pours gasoline onto every spark.

Both the jokes and the narrative flag long before the excessive running time is up.

In which a bunch of drugged or drunk superstars, played by themselves, use the end of the world as a pretext for projectile vomiting, bodily fluids and every kind of grossness.

In daring to so aggressively shake up two formulas for the price of one - the apocalyptic epic and the frat-boy romp - this is a very special comedy indeed.

Just one great big goofy joke. Some funny stuff, but a rental/download only.

It's a continuation of Rogen and his co-stars' established acts, with minimal tweaks to the formula. But why worry, while that formula still works?

The players flap, mug and pratfall. Then they flap, mug and pratfall some more. The script is an open text: they can bring their own jokes. The audience is still waiting for one when the film closes.

The story becomes as scattershot and repetitive as the scatalogical gags. Best enjoyed under the influence.

Loads funnier - and smarter - than it sounds on paper, and well worth watching for the unflinching Hollywood satire, even if you're sick of Apatow-esque bromantic comedies.
June 27, 2013
Entertaining, frequently hilarious comedy with a witty script, a superb comic cast and some surprisingly good special effects, though your enjoyment of the film will largely depend on how funny you find the relentless self-parody.

Guffaw you will, but like a middling sketch show, it gives your sides too many opportunities to recover.

It could use a brutal edit to remove some weak material, but mostly this is a hell of a lot of fun.

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

With most of these performers now pursuing far more interesting projects in their own careers, maybe this is the end for a group of comics whose shtick has started to feel rather tired.

June 23, 2013
a ribald frolic of a film that willfully, gleefully skewers both film conventions and the cult of celebrity

This is a vanity project full of crude humor. It may or may not appeal to broad audiences.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
