Storyline

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)

Trivia

Seth Rogen gave an interview where he described how the script by himself and Evan Goldberg combined real characteristics of the actors who then produced bizarre alt-version of themselves with elements that had absolutely nothing in common with the cast. Craig Robinson echoed this point in a separate interview when he said that that Michael Cera's portrayal in the film - a drug-using, ass-grabbing, utterly obnoxious loudmouth - was "the epitome of NOT Michael Cera".

Goofs

As Craig is jumping into Jay he is securely wearing the backpack full of food but when they crash through to the outside the very next second he is not wearing it. See more »

Hilarious and original, which is all it was meant to be.
4 November 2013 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Although 'This is the end' does not have the greatest storyline in the history of film, it is a very inventive movie in its own way. The fact that every actor and actress plays him or herself makes the movie quite original and refreshing. Besides that, there is also the fact that the makers took an overused theme, the end of the world, and made it completely their own.

'This is the end' hasn't failed a second to make me laugh. It is a very clever and entertaining comedy, with hilarious and dirty dialogues. I do have to admit, however, that the storyline can feel a little bit too ridiculous from time to time, even for this kind of movie. The acting in the movie was not that spectacular, but the actors involved were all born for this kind of movie.

For anyone who can truly appreciate a hilarious movie which is made specifically to humor and entertain people, and has no other hidden agenda whatsoever, this is definitely a must watch.
