Okay, I can tell from different comical reviews of other films and works that someone is gonna get mad about the plot or the inappropriate jokes. I am here to say if you are looking to get enlightened or find some sort deep meaning behind this film; go back now.

Anyway, I thought this movie was hilarious! I like it when comedic movies own up to their "R" rating. (I'm weird. I know.) It was funny, but also visually stunning and I thought that was great. Also, I have to give props to the music department for the music choice. It most definitely didn't hurt that it had a few comedic actors in the film as well. I think every actor/actress as well as the team for this film did a great job. I would put more of a review here, but I don't like telling people about spoilers, sorry.

I thought the movie was pretty funny. It was very original for sure. Something that isn't a repeat from another movie like girl meets guy, girl falls in love, guy loses girl cause he did something stupid, then they fall in love again. It's quirky and funny and something I haven't seen before. The language is definitely not for younger audiences, the verbage is quite strong in the sex department. Would I suggest it? Sure. I had so many laughs during the movie...The ending made me roll my eyes slightly because of the far fetched impracticality but again...I don't think it was made for a literal standpoint but the comedic side won me over. Plus I do love Anna too!

"The people who went to church and prayed and missed out on a lot of fun stuff got sucked straight to heaven. The rest of us, well we're screwed." While out bowling one night Lindsey (Kendrick) and her boyfriend Ben witness the rapture. When they get home they find out that both their moms have been taken while their fathers are still here. Trying to move on with their lives they start a food cart. When that doesn't work they take a job with the anti-Christ (Robinson), but with a hidden agenda. This is a movie I was excited about mainly because of the cast. I have to say that I thought this was very funny and I laughed throughout the whole movie, but it is my kind of humor. Mainly a lot of random things happening and some really stupid jokes that make me laugh like a man getting killed by a huge flaming rock and the wife mad because he was holding the eggs when he died. If that kind of humor appeals to you then watch this and laugh. If you are into more intelligent humor then you may not like this. Overall, a stupid movie that I thought was very funny and I laughed a lot. I give it a B+.

I actually really liked this movie. I usually hate dumb humor, but for some reason this movie made me laugh more than once. It's pretty crude, but funny!

Not great, but it was solid, unique, surprising, funny, creative.
I love the movies that at least go to new territory for their comedy, even if its not hilarious it will bring lots of little chuckles and smiles. Very pleasantly surprised by an unknown movie. I recognized a lot of comedians I love in the cast, and I thought the crude humor was needed...he is the devil!

Of a string of apocalo-comedic movies that have appeared in the past few years, I had avoided this one until just the other day, thinking it would be even dumber than the others. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was funnier than I expected.

If one starts with the large leap of faith that the “apocalypse” might unfold literally something like the last book in the Bible pictures, including an Anti-Christ, the rapture of believers up to heaven, 1000 years of suffering for the rest, plagues of locust, rains of blood, flaming meteors and whatnot, and then develops a comedic script around that concept, this is what you may get. Craig Robinson plays the amusingly evil Antichrist (who starts out a politician), with quite a potty-mouth (and being the anti-Christ, I guess it’s hard to argue that’s inappropriate). Lindsay (Anna Kendrick) and her boyfriend Ben (John Francis Daley) try to live their lives as normally as possible, which is rather difficult dodging flaming meteors and such. The film is definitely leavened by the presence of Rob Corddry as Ben’s dad, and Ana Gastayer as Lindsay’s neurotic mom (who, she narrates, “religiously went to church…well…I guess that’s the only way to go to church, isn’t it?”) and who was raptured, only to be rejected and sent back to earth the next day after she lost her temper when someone cut in front of her in line in heaven (she was, to be fair, rather rigid as well as neurotic)…

Jobs being rather hard to find after the rapture and all, Corddry is quite happy to become the Anti Christ’s minion, helping tend the grounds of a mansion he owns in Portland [Lindsay properly notes, the book of Revelation had it pretty much correct, but it left out some details like Portland Oregon], and tries to get Lindsay and Ben jobs there too. They really don’t want to work for the Anti Christ, but admittedly there aren’t many good options. When the Anti Christ unexpectedly shows up on the property (flanked with minions looking even more like the Secret Service than they look) and is instantly smitten with Lindsay [amazingly, a virgin in her 20’s who still for some reason was not “raptured”—maybe it was the total non-attendance at church?…whatever] the plot thickens (or coagulates?)

Hard to find good comedy movies anymore. This one has quite a bit of vulgarity though essentially no nudity, and very little gore or violence or drug references apart from marijuana, so I guess the “R” is principally due to language. I give it a solid B and found it reasonably entertaining.

This story centers around Lindsey (Anna Kendrick) who has caught the eye of the portly foul-mouthed Anti-Christ (Craig Robinson) who prefers to be called "The Beast." Her complaining mother has returned from heaven, having been kicked out of the rapture.

The idea was clever, especially how man learns to calmly deal with the various plagues thrown his way. I enjoyed the Maddow joke as well as the "fowl-mouthed" crows. The humor was spotty. The jokes were rather lame and juvenile. The writers came up with a half decent plot but couldn't execute on dialouge, which made the actors look bad. It has the stupidity and language of a teen sex comedy that misses the mark.

Might make it as a low brow rental.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity. Sex talk.

There are exactly two laughs in this movie and both of them are talking crows. Danny McBride should have played the beast/antichrist. He could ad lib funnier lines all day every day. Craig Robinson can be funny, but here he's trying way too hard, as if he knows he's stuck in a straight jacket forces him to hit the same note and wasn't given time or freedom to expand the role.

The movie is funny. If you enjoyed This is the End, you will like Rapture-Palooza. It almost seems like an extension of This is the end. Craig Robinson is hilarious as The Beast.
