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)

Great fun. Takes me back the Rogen hits of 2007 and 2008.
26 June 2013 | by (Suffolk, England) – See all my reviews

It's felt like forever since Seth Rogen and pals were on top of the comedy pedestal. In their wake they've left a vague area where I'm not even sure who's reigning it besides the odd one- hit wonder. While Knocked Up and The 40 Year Old Virgin have grown stale for me, Superbad and to a slightly guiltier extent Pineapple Express will always be some of my favourite comedies. It's great to see those casts reunited here especially for "Pineapple Express 2." Although Jay Baruchel has taken a long time to warm up to me, he really worked as the lead character here considering he hasn't participated much with the gang besides Knocked Up. I actually quite related with him which is a pleasure with a film like this, especially one that ends so epically.

Fortunately I really like the idea and I like the celebrities enough to go with their self- referencing humour, even when they're deliberately playing against type such as Michael Cera. It is hilarious for the most part but its biggest problem is the pacing and structure besides the odd unconvincing special effect. The film is presented in chunks and loose segments rather than having them on the journey to a particular thing. It isn't clear until about halfway through how the film could or should end, which makes it occasionally a drag (apparently they didn't know either and had to shoot the ending last minute). It's pretty good, but not quite up to Superbad or Pineapple Express level but perhaps this is a movie best enjoyed with big crowds so the laughs feel bigger and better. I wonder if Rogen and Goldberg have more up their sleeve before they exhaust their style.

7/10
