Cast overview, first billed only:


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 Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Worst movie
5 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the worst movie I have ever seen. These guys dropped in my eyes. All the movie was about was getting high. It appeared that all of them were doing a last ditch attempt in Hollywood. I only watched half the movie. Not even worth the $1.60 I spent at red box. If only I could get my money back. If I can give any advice, do not rent the movie. I think I got stupider by watching this. It was worse than the spoof movies. I thought it was their way of making fun of the spoof movies. But it wasn't. It's been years since Hollywood has come out with a good movie. This movie was a complete waste of time. I don't think they really made any money from the movie.
