Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
All Jay Baruchel expected coming to LA was a fun time with Seth Rogen with all the wild partying to have both by themselves and at James Franco's housewarming party. Suddenly, the Rapture hits and the Biblical Apocalypse has begun. Now, Jay and Seth are desperately sheltering in James' house for rescue along with a few other friends. Together, they must band together to attempt to survive the end of the world, only for Jay to find that they are all too dumb and superficial to do it until they discover the only way out. Written by

It blows my mind that the majority of initial reviews were 1/10 when this was one of the most enjoyable and re-watchable movies I've ever seen. I understand that a lot of the wrong people went to see it expecting a more general audience friendly movie since it had mega stars, but if you can't take a dick joke or 2 and you say "the f-word" this might not be the movie for you. I can't help it wonder if this movie was bombed with bad reviews from someone with multiple accounts, because I really enjoyed this movie.
I liked the atmosphere that comes with being trapped in a house with the apocalypse happening outside and I liked that they made fun of themselves the whole movie. I also kind of like that a lot of people hated it.
I didn't find any of it offensive or over the line where other people did, so maybe if you have a "over the line" sense of humor, are hard to offend, aren't expecting a generic Hollywood formula comedy, and specifically liked "get him to the Greek" you might love this movie. You may not laugh much, but there's a potential to be highly entertained in this mildly crude and eerie atmosphere apocalypse comedy gem.
i give it 9/10 and I rarely even give great movies an 8. I reserve 9 for movies that are 1 number from the best movie of all time, and this IMO deserves a 9!
How can the first 30 reviews be mostly 1/10 but this movie is still has an above average rating?
