6 Los Angeles celebrities are stuck in James Franco's house after a series of devastating events just destroyed the city. Inside, the group not only will have to face with the apocalypse, but with themselves.
Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapaport 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 assassinate him.
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

An early idea for the story had the film taking place at a studio, where a Busta Rhymes music video shoot was taking place, with the main characters present when the apocalypse begins. See more »
In the scene after Craig gets taken into heaven they are seen in Franco's Prius. All of the light are on in the dashboard indicating that the car wasn't actually running, just in the accessory mode. This means that the car couldn't move because you couldn't put it into drive. See more »
If this is funny the apocalypse of Hollywood is near
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.
