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.

If this is funny the apocalypse of Hollywood is near
14 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

How many ways can you create the same dumb movie? There isn't much to say about this film that can't be explained as follows: The dumb pot comedy brat pack hang out, sexual and drug related humor ensues as the group starts to riff on each other. Throw in some plot about the end of the world and redemption of your sins. That's the whole movie.

If you read the critics' take, every one of them says this is a work of genius. It's so self-indulgent it's terrifying. I'm sure they are laughing hysterically at how they didn't bother to write a script and would just stay in character of themselves and use childish humor and they could force out a few laughs. Yes, there are a couple of funny moments but for an hour and 45 minutes? I've seen worse but this was a horrendous waste of time.
