Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapoport run the celebrity tabloid show "Skylark Tonight". When they land an interview with a surprise fan, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, they are recruited by the CIA to turn their trip to Pyongyang into an assassination mission.
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

Originally, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg asked Sony for a forty to forty-five million dollar budget, but Sony was nervous about the plot of the movie, and refused. Rogen and Goldberg then asked Sony what amount they would be comfortable giving while still letting Rogen and Goldberg maintain creative control, and Sony said thirty-two million dollars. Rogen and Goldberg accepted. See more »
I started watching this film purely because of the decent score it had received. I should have known better. Yet again Seth Rogen and pals star in a "comedy", that would only make the simplest of teenage boys laugh.
The story itself is fairly interesting and I hold nothing against gore, but the dialog and the attempted humor are on a level that a monkey could achieve, and to be honest, this style of comedy hasn't been fun for over a decade (Beavis and Butthead was good at the time, not now). I understand in some ways that humor is subjective and thus not anyone can like every kind of comedy, but this brain damaging rubbish just makes me sad at the decadence of this society.
