4.0 out of 5 stars You'll either love it or hate it!, 4 April 2014
This review is from: This is the End [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
'This Is The End' is one of the most enjoyable American comedy films I've seen in a long time. Riding high on a cast of talent, I can see why some people didn't enjoy it, it's off the wall, completely daft, ridiculously self-indulgent, and a required taste. For comedy effect, all of the actors portray themselves in the movie, and the result is a laugh a minute.

Jay Baruchel visits his good friend Seth Rogen (who is also the film's co-director/director) in LA for a drug fueled catch up, and although Jay hates the Hollywood lifestyle and the mingling with celebrities (play spot the cameos) that goes with it, he's dragged along to a party at James Franco's house. Baruchel is instantly out of his comfort zone among the wild-partying crowds, and is accompanied by Rogen to a local off licence to buy a pack of cigarettes. Suddenly, earthquakes cause catastrophe and people are killed. The only survivors are James Franco, Baruchel, Rogen, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson. Fleeing to Franco's comfortable home, it's there where the pals must come together in an attempt to survive in what is the end of the world.

Contains strong language, lots of sex references, and drug use. It's great to watch with a group of mates, but I have to say that it would help if you are already familiar with the actors to fully appreciate the humour. Some would say (and have) that it's a load of old rubbish, but I think it's an original, refreshing mainstream comedy that takes a very funny tongue in cheek view of the Hollywood lifestyle.
