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

The film appeared to have finished a very successful North American box office run falling just short of the $100 million benchmark for blockbuster status, with over $96 million in receipts when it fell into very limited release by the end of August 2013. While the $100 million blockbuster goal is no longer considered as unique or important as it once was (due to the combination of higher ticket prices and film budgets, as well as the majority of most major films taking in most of their box office revenue from international markets), Sony Pictures put the film in over 2,000 additional theaters for week of September 6-12, 2013, specifically to aim at getting over the nine-figure benchmark. And on September 14th, its 95th day in theaters, it officially reached blockbuster status. See more »
When the possessed Jonah Hill violently vomits on James Franco and Seth Rogen, the penis statue can clearly be seen intact. This is the same statue that Emma Watson beheaded earlier in the film. See more »
Seth, that's some of the better acting than I've seen in your last six movies. Where the fuck was that in Green Hornet?

If you've seen Superbad, Pineapple Express, etc., then you know the type of humor this movie will have. I, for one, could watch James Franco, Seth Rogan, and Danny McBride leisurely eat a sandwich and manage to laugh my butt off. Thankfully this movie is much more exciting than that. It's brilliant that they all just play themselves and manage to poke fun at their own lifestyles. Expect weed and drug humor of course. The plot sets itself up for hilarity, as they all take refuge in James Franco's fortress of a mansion while the world outside them goes up in flames. Cabin fever mixed with dwindling supplies results in hilarious situations and good one liners.
The movie made me laugh extremely hard and had all my favorite people in one film. I only wouldn't recommend this film if you're uptight and religious.
