While attending a party at James Franco's house, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and many other celebrities are faced with the apocalypse.
First off, I don't want to die at James Franco's house. No offense to Mr. Franco. I'm sure it's nice and all but . . .
OK, this is not to everyone's taste. But for those who like their humour self aware, offensive, and a tad vulgar, it's the cat's ass. This is a funny as fuck end-of-the-world comedy that pokes fun at celebrity, religion, and the end of days, often at the same time. It helps to be a fan of Rogen, Baruchel and Evan Goldberg's sense of humour, but isn't mandatory.
I dug the numerous guest spots by the likes to Michael Cera, Emma Watson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and many others. And who doesn't want to see Aziz Ansari kicked into a hole to hell? I laughed, a lot. The first 10 minutes are gold, the rest works more often than not.
This Is the End is a perfect way to let off some steam at the end of the day. And it's funny enough to warrant repeat viewings. Funny is funny, and this one is a Good.
PS: I hate James Franco. Seeing him eaten by Danny McBride made my night. Spoiler alert.
