Definitive, and unsurprising, proof that Danny McBride would be a total jackass during the apocalypse.

This Is the End, in addition to being the funniest film of the year, is also the best buddies-versus-the-apocalypse film since Simon Pegg and Nick Frost battled zombie hordes to make it back to the Winchester in 2004's Shaun of the Dead.

A perfect excuse for high levels of hysteria, mayhem, profanity.

The dirty half dozen may find God at the last minute, but they've all been disciples of Judd Apatow for years. So the absence of taste is balanced by an abundance of heart.

Adults-only, stoner comedy at its most hilarious extremes, straining hard to make sure every icky, grody, envelope-pushing "ewww" of its R rating is covered.

... the movie definitely struck a chord with the crowd I saw it with ... (with) a climax that brings bromance back ...

They've tapped into the inherent psychedelia of Revelation and enhanced it with absurdity, scatology, Ecstasy, weed and a contemporary secular ignorance informed by Terminator movies.

Depicts the end of the world with such drug-addled, potty-mouthed, over-the-top and below-the-belt enthusiasm that it also might signal Armageddon for a certain type of boys' club comedy.

This Is the End is masterful comedy filmmaking, all the more impressive for its loose-limbed apparent casualness.

I love a movie where it feels as if you just worked out your abs because you laughed so hard.

Because its transplanted the egotistical and childish behavior normally reserved for Team Apatow's lovable manchild characters onto the actors themselves, it feels dangerous. For awhile, it feels like anything can happen, and its thrilling.

A funny but flawed film that would have benefited from a tighter edit.

A revolting gross-out comedy, whose humor is witless, scatological and childish.

The moments of comic gold are sometimes diluted by considerable stretches of tedium, generally occurring when the filmmakers and their improvising actors refuse to end scenes and instead carry them past the point of comedic no-return.

... honesty, loyalty, and comedy will be tested as the world comes to a horrifying and dangling end... and you'll never look at Michael Cera the same way again.

If you think that being trapped with a bunch of guys telling dick jokes would the equivalent of Hell on Earth - well, according to THIS IS THE END, you are more right than you think.

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

basically a modern-day Cheech & Chong movie with a bigger budget and more focus, disguising itself as an event film

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.
