Hermione just stole all of our shit. And Jay suggested that we rape her. I think the only reason he did that is because he knows he’s about two minutes away from becoming the house bitch himself
For me this is one of the most original ideas to come from Hollywood for a while. This really is an all star comedy cast and the best thing is it’s the end of the world. The concept of the film was expanded by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg from their own short film, this mind-blowing comedy gives its amazing cast an opportunity to play hilariously exaggerated versions of themselves.The apocalypse strikes during a party at James Franco’s house in this outrageously raunchy comedy! James Franco is throwing a party at his luxury home for all his A-list pals. The cream of young Hollywood is there, including Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jason Segel, Jay Baruchel, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Danny McBride. But while the debauchery escalates, something ominous is happening outside. The ground starts to shake. A giant hole opens up in the lawn. People are sucked into the sky by mysterious lights. And monsters are on the loose! Now the six surviving actors struggle to deal with a real apocalypse. And then Emma Watson shows up, completely trashing her good girl image!
This Is The End is easily one of the best Comedies in recent years,a brilliant Comedy that deals with the apocalypse or the end of the world but in it’s own creative and unique way. Now there have been many films that have dealt with the apocalypse or the end of the world but there hasn’t been a film that has dealt the apocalypse like This Is The End a funny,hilarious,original and wild film that has real life celebrates playing fictionalized versions of themselves in a film that is a that is a wonderful movie experience that you will never forget. Once the Action in This Is The End starts it just never stops and as you are watching the film you pulled into an insane and weird where the laughs and jokes in the film are completely none stop almost to the point of where you are laughing so hard your stomach will hurt and tears will run down your eyes and where the jokes and laughs are smart and witty. Directors and co-writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg take the great apocalyptic genre and flip it on it’s head giving us a film that is a stoner film,a fantasy and a Horror film all in one where the film’s main characters are trying to survive by not going but trying survive each other on the inside and some of the scenes with the movie’s main characters are just down right hilarious because it balances out friendship as well as tension not knowing if the films characters are going to survive or die.
The real life actors playing themselves in this movie is ingenious showing viewers actors in the film and how in a fictional way how they would act if the end of the world did happen and it’s done in a wild and unforgettable way. The apocalypse in the film is played with laughs but is also done in a straight forward manner thanks to the actors so the film doesn’t become a Spoof or a parody but the laughs are always there. The screenplay by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg is excellent and well-written with lines of memorable dialogue that’s funny,profane and vulgar and great moments of creativity and style as well writing in hilarious scenes that reference some of the main actors films which include Pineapple Express as well as funny and over the top references to Horror classics such as The Exorcist and Rosemary’s Baby. The screenplay and film is so funny you will be craving for more when the film ends. If you loved Rogen and Goldberg’s other collaborations Superbad and Pineapple Express,you will love This Is The End. The violence and gore in the film are grisly and gruesome at times and will makes some viewers cringe but the violence and gore fit with the tone of the film and are done for great laughs. The ending of the film will make you laugh your head off and will surprise you with a couple of cameos that you will not see coming. It’s a wonderful ending.
