Sex & Nudity


there are endless crude and sexual jokes and references made throughout the entire film.

Two women are seen kneeling in front of and behind Michael Cera (we see his butt), implying fellatio and anilingus. A woman's breast is visible. Prior to this, another woman states outright that she intends to have sex with Cera before the party is over.

Seth talks about how the kids at school used to hold him down and "titty-fuck" him.

Seth, Jay, and Jonah lay together on a couch, discussing different positions to sleep in to avoid sexual arousal ("dick to butt", "butt to butt"). They soon agree on "all dicks up".

Michael Cera slaps Rihanna's butt.

James Franco and Danny McBride have an extended argument over who can make the bigger ejaculate mass while masturbating after Franco finds Danny's semen in a porno magazine. This scene goes on for about 3 minutes and is meant to be over the top.

An extended discussion plays out in which the male characters discuss which one of them is more likely to rape Emma Watson.

Danny McBride becomes the leader of a cannibal tribe and has Channing Tatum as a sex slave. Tatum wears a thong and we see his bare butt as Danny describes how easy it is for him to have sex with him.

Jonah is raped by a demon.

When showing the porno magazine you can see explicit pictures of females. Breasts shown and vaginas clearly seen.

Violence & Gore


Most in a funny or comical fashion

Numerous scenes depicting the remnants of an apocalyptic wasteland. The outside world is shown engulfed in flames, and during the first half of the film, the sounds of screams and heavy gunfire are heard in the background.

As the apocalypse first sets in, a convenience store is rattled loudly by what appears to be an earthquake, multiple people are shown being suddenly beamed into the sky, and a machine falls on top of a cashier, crushing her with blood spurting immediately on the walls.

A massive earthquake then opens up the ground near a mansion where a large party is taking place, creating a portal to what is presumably hell. Dozens of party goers walk outside and are sucked into the crater. One person grabs onto the foot of someone who is on land, and the man then kicks him down. A bloody, severed leg is visible. A woman's head is accidentally crushed by a fleeing party goer, with blood briefly shown spurting.

Another person is impaled by a lamp-post, with massive amounts of blood spurting from his chest as he expresses bewilderment. Very graphic and gory.

A man is raped by a demon (off-screen) and becomes possessed, attacking his friends with his new found supernatural strength before being subdued and tied to a bed. A man attempts to perform an exorcism on him, the demonic spirit mocks the exorcist but he begins convulsing eventually. He is ultimately burned to death after a fallen candle triggers a massive fire within a mansion.

A man attempting to break into a house is beheaded by a demon, his head falls through a hole in the barricade and the resultant bloody mess causes the occupants to unintentionally kick his around like a soccer ball. Very graphic and gory.

A massively endowed demon about as tall as a skyscraper, presumably Satan, prepares to consume multiple people who are then saved from that fate through being raptured in a beam. A beam severs the penis of the massive demon and magma spills from his body.

A man is raptured before he can be eaten by cannibals, but his snide remarks cause him to be dropped back to earth and he is subsequently eaten by the gang of cannibals. Blood is seen spurting in the distance and his severed nose is briefly seen.

A man is struck in the nose by an axe handle due to a misunderstanding.

There is discussion about possibly raping a female character, but nothing comes of this.



330 uses of the F-Word, 1 use of the C-Word, and extremely liberal use of other curse words (shit, ass, pussy, cunt, dick, tits, twat, bitch, damn, bastard, prick, etc.). Several religious exclamations. Near-constant crude sexual dialogue. Three F-words are uttered by a young actress not normally known for using such language on screen.


Seth and Jay hang out together and smoke a large amount of marijuana. Seth even spells Jay's name out in joints.

Party goers are seen smoking pot and in a long shot a woman can be seen lighting a pipe.

Shrooms, marijuana, cocaine, and ecstasy are among the rations for the house.

The group gets high on ecstasy and has duels with lamp stands.

Michael Cera snorts a large amount of cocaine off a table in James Franco's house. He also blows a handful of the drug into the face of another man, who freaks out, having never taken coke before.

Michael is constantly high on cocaine in his scenes before his death arrives.

Jay Baruchel unknowingly drinks a full can of ecstasy.

Regular tobacco smoking is prevalent and at one point Jay leaves the party to buy smokes.

In Heaven, Craig explains that marijuana is smoked liberally, and we see several characters there with joints.

Parents might be concerned that an actress known for her child-friendly roles (Emma Watson) is shown attending a party where drugs are being used by a lot of people. However, at no point is she shown actually imbibing (though a later scene in the film has her making off with the gang's alcohol).


The violence in the movie is graphic, sudden, and unexpected, though it is comical in nearly every instance.

The demons in the film could be unsettling or scary to some.

Several scenes have legitimately unexpected jump-scares.

The overall concept of the biblical apocalypse may be unsettling

Total - 38/50

The rating should be

Rated R: (for strong crude and sexual content, some graphic nudity, pervasive language, drug use throughout, and comic horror violence).
