4.0 out of 5 stars VERY raunchy and funny...what's not to like! June 17, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
One of the great things about THIS IS THE END is the concept. It's a bit obnoxious...but it's also really darn clever. An "end of the world" movie starring actors like Seth Rogan, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, James Franco & Craig Robinson PLAYING THEMSELVES! These actors and a number of their Hollywood friends (Danny McBride, Michael Cera, Paul Rudd, Aziz Ansari and most randomly Rihanna and Emma Watson) all assemble at a party at James Franco's house just when all hell literally breaks loose. True, it sounds a bit self-important and self-indulgent...but who cares when the results are as obscene and hilarious at it all turns out.

This end of the world scenario involves the biblical apocalypse, and it all starts with the rapture, as people all around are suddenly drawn up to the skies by heavenly tractor beams. This is witnessed by Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogan...and they run back to the raucous house party only to discover that NO ONE has been raptured from amongst these Hollywood partiers. That alone is pretty hilarious.

As the scenario plays out, horrible things happen to many of the stars until only a few are left to ride out the end, trapped in Franco's house with a woefully under-stocked pantry. The "plot" of the film isn't terribly important, to be honest...the fun is in watching these guys play versions of themselves that are HIGHLY unflattering, and yet not necessarily so far off the mark to be totally unbelievable (although I sure hope Michael Cera is NOTHING like his character in the film...absolutely disturbing and hilarious). Seth Rogan has some fun riffing on the idea that he plays the same character in all his films. Baruchel HATES all these guys. Jonah Hill comes off as effete and creepy.

Seth Rogen and his usual entourage of stoner near-celebrities return to the screen, this time propped against the backdrop of a biblical end-of-world scenario. There's a certain taste of playful irony in the fact that so many of these actors, Rogen, Jonah Hill and Danny McBride especially, who share the common criticism of merely playing themselves throughout their careers, are doing so literally this time around. They're able to play that up to ridiculous extremes and big laughs in the long-form party scene that eats up most of the first act, riffing and rolling with the punches in their never-ending quest to make the cast and crew smile. Predictably, that's the film's sweet spot - a blank slate for ad-lib spoils - and when it's finally cast aside to make way for a more coherent narrative (admittedly, a very loose one) their ship springs a big leak. Where a more thoroughly-incubated concept like Shaun of the Dead is able to easily blend quick, witty banter with big set pieces and wild, frenzied action, This is the End struggles to unify an equally diverse toolbox. I can get the fish-out-of-water aspect that was being fronted here, of a catered group of celebrities who were lost when their smartphones dropped off the grid, but that runs out of gas near the three-quarter mark and when the big special effects swing and miss, there's nothing left to carry us the rest of the way. Really uproariously funny at a few points, but pointlessly thin and overblown at others.

Format:Blu-ray
With the amount of talent this has lined up, it would be strange if it was not a good time at the movies. Based on a short film called Jay & Seth vs. the Apocalypse, this movie ups the ante in every sense of the word. The comedy you have come to expect from Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Craig Robinson, James Franco, Jonah Hill, and Danny McBride is top notch. The rest of the cast, all playing themselves, is also played perfectly. Injected with horror in fact, some right out of famous horror films like Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist, this movie also brings the scares and gore, although it never loses sight that it is a comedy, first and foremost.

When Jay comes to LA to party with Seth, they end up hitting a party at James Franco's new, druglord-type mansion. All the celebrities are there: the main cast of 6 mentioned above, Michael Cera, Rihanna, and others that I won't spoil the cameos for. Then, it comes to a crashing halt when the party is stopped by the oncoming End of Days. Death and destruction leave the 6 leads trapped in James' house, with very little but themselves to entertain each other and survive. Comedy ensues in every form, from spoofing themselves in nearly every movie they've been in, to the explicit vulgarity we have come to love in their films like Superbad, Pineapple Express, Knocked Up, and so on, but kicked up a few notches. Everyone gets a chance to shine too, which is great, because they all give 110%, and the movie is all the better for it. The horror is in top form too. It is surprising how easy it just comes to the screen in such a raunchy comedy with these recognizable faces, but that is part of what makes the movie so enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny, but you gotta be a fan October 11, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
"This is the End" is a funny in joke, as long as you know the actors, and are appreciative of Apatow family of films. It's good stuff from start to about the finish, but there does have to be a little appreciation for the actors in this film. The film features exaggerated versions of the actors playing themselves, often in self deprecating ways, in the midst of an apocalypse/rapture. A lot of the humor is derived on the actors' portrayal of themselves, often poking fun at their common depictions in their films. For example, there's a joke about Seth Rogen always playing himself while Jonah Hill is creepily nice and Michael Cera in a cameo is a downright jerk. This type of humor drives a lot of the film's jokes and keeps the pace going.

But like all films with this crew, it has heart and has a story that carries it beyond the humor. The bonding and growth of the friendship of Seth and Jay is central to the story. Yes, characters do learn lessons. Without giving away a major plot point, there is an allusion to the idea that most actors don't deserve to be saved from the apocalypse. The story works. And you can't help but feel this is some sort of catharsis for the actors involved in this movie (and reportedly, it is).

The movie loses some steam towards the very end. It feels a little rushed. But admittedly, there's only so many ways you can go with an idea like this. The movie rests mostly on its continual humorous banter between these very talented comedians. In some ways, this reminded me of another self referential comedy - Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back by Kevin Smith. That film was very forced and I could only love it so much. This is the End is the way to do it. It feels very loose, fun, and honest - Never forced. It's rooted very much in the improvisational gifts of these comedians. If you've been following their work thus far, you'll enjoy it. Not recommended for newcomers of their work though.
