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

Similar kind of humour to "The Interview," but even more over the top.
The fact that so many of the user ratings for this film are poles apart reinforces a truth about comedy: There are many different types, and not everybody responds equally well to them all. This film is filled with gratuitous bad language, sophomoric sexual references, and weed lots and lots of people smoking weed. So if any of those things bother you, don't see the film.
I, however, found it very funny indeed. The humour is based on things such as: Well-known actors ostensibly playing themselves, but doing so in a way that pokes fun at the stereotypically- superficial and neurotic lifestyles of celebrity L.A. actors; and everything is so over-the-top that you either say to yourself, "this is ridiculous," and walk out, or you say, "this is ridiculous," and laugh at the ridiculousness of it all. The situational ridiculousness of it all is kind of like "Sharknado," but "The End" is much funnier. A better comparison, perhaps, would be to "The Interview," which features James Franco and Seth Rogen, two of the main actors in this film.
If you liked "The Interview," you'll probably like this film as well. If you didn't like it, this is probably not a film for you.
