Vulgar language - excessive sexual verbal assaults, sexual descriptives, etc. Vulgar scenes, such as naked butt of Michael Cera while being "serviced." Drug/alcohol use. Mocks the Bible. General grossness. Violent death and destruction. However, just finished 2nd viewing. It's not Oscar nominating material, but still funny. I might even watch it again, though not too soon. Here's why I give some stars. Almost everyone plays themselves. They mock themselves, their lifestyles, or at least, their perceived lifestyles. They mock their own ineptness amidst the destruction of the earth. They mock their self-indulgence. It's our fun at the expense of the celebrities involved. Watch for the numerous cameos of familiar faces, including the parties at the beginning and the end. When I say they mock the Bible, it’s partly a mocking of their own quickly scanned mis-understanding of the apocalypse (part of the plot). They definitely do mock the concept of heaven, however. Just consider all of this fair warning, if you decide to watch it. Even while being offended, I still enjoyed it. I consider it a 3 to 3.5 star rating. Since I can't go halvsies, rounded down. Just can’t give it a 4.
This Movie Will Make You Want To Be A Better Person Deep In a sea of comedies that are often too trite, over hyped, with the best scenes shown in the trailer, I wasn't expecting much, especially when the actors played themselves. At first you think this is another vanity piece that will suffice on a night in. As the movie progressed I soon realized this was more than funny, it was genius humor. The story unfolded quickly with surprising and hilarious physical humor. The comedy was satisfyingly indulgent in the crass, baseless, gratuitous, outlandish and shameful laughs you can expect from this clique of actors. As a caricature of himself, James Franco reminds you what a great comedic actor he really is - a groovy, hip, young hollywood royal in all his LA glory - and shockingly likable. Seth Rogen, Jay what's his name, Jonah Hill etc. were crazy good and Danny McBride was epic in his role as a party crasher, outsider who is lovably detestable. Ok, and to punctuate all the raucous hilarity; it may actually make you think a little more deeply about being a good person.
Typical Seth Rogen Trash This movie typifies the dumbing down of America. Hollywood has abandoned entertainment for politics and has become probably the most hypocritical group today as it leads the moronic lemmings around by the nose. I grew up watching Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor and George Carlin so I'm no prude to cursing. I have no problem with adult jokes. Cursing for Cursing sake is neither clever nor provacitive. Seth Rogen is a no talent cheap phoney. His fans are just too dumb to know.I've seen enough of his work to know.
Pretty bad This was a movie that looked semi interesting, I watched the trailer sometime back and decided to watch it. Didn't know how derogatory and foolish it was really going to be. Profanity is off the charts in this one, it's only real contender is Blair Witch. I cringe everytime they use the Lords name in vain, even when they're in "heaven" which I find their depiction of Heaven very Hollywood and blasphemous. This movie doesn't really deserve 1 star but hey, gotta give it a star to review it.
Word for Haters It's a great movie. Not the funniest;but for it's plot and story(not to mention the ALL STAR CAST), it is very comical. I can't stand it when people dog movies because they have cursing, religious humor or references ( GOD himself gave us our sense of humor, SO LIGHTEN UP HOLIER THAN THOU kind of people!!!!!), or sexual humor, etc. It's rated R for crying out loud!!! Let those people who can laugh watch it and turn your Barney,the 700 Club or BrokeBack Mtn. back on and cry!
Don't buy! Don't watch! Don't even look while browsing! Just another group of guys trying too hard to be funny. Now don't get me wrong... Seth Rosen is a funny guy, but this was NOT it for him. Jonah Hill, in my opinion, just keeps getting worse and worse as a comedic actor. All the rest I haven't really seen much too judge. I had to fake a laugh throughout the whole thing.
Um what Usually a bad movie that makes utterly no impact on me besides "wtf" will have me asking ...what did I just watch, and why did I just wsste (insert hours) of my life on that at the end of it. But this movie had me asking that within 20 minutes. It is akin to neapolian dynamite in the crap factor. Its not funny when it really could have been, its more than dull and the story leads nowhere. Some may find this movie funny...I find it stupid, but give it a chance I guess ...you may be one who finds it funny.
No one should be surprised this movie will be crude, vulgar and mind numbingly stupid when you consider all the actors who are involved. I enjoyed it because what I certainly wasn't expecting it to be an Oscar worthy piece of art. The pacing at the beginning and ending were good. It's the middle section that kind of dragged on a little. And then the whole apocalypse thing just made an appearance and all sorts of ridiculousness ensued. That and the argument between McBride and Franco about a porn mag. That nearly killed me.
Dispicable and raunchy As it should be with the cast of comedic allstars involved. Their is nothing funnier than watching this group as they play "exaggerated" versions of themselves while facing the trials and tribulations of the end of the world. Choosing either eternal damnnation as they give into denial, selfishness, and their sinful nature or salvation as they reach enlightenment through acceptance, self sacrifice, and true belief. F*cking hilarious throughout. I enjoyed every second from beginning until the End.
Crap, just crap I figured I'd enjoy this movie since many decent actors and actresses starred in it. They couldn't go a single scene without the use of profanity or sexual innuendos. I should've known this movie would be horrible. Sad to say this film made me more disgusted than it did making me laugh.
Hard to watch I am one of those individuals that really hates to not finish a movie. I can say that without a doubt in my mind, this was the hardest movie I have ever had to finish watching. I really don't like this movie. There really isn't any redeeming qualities in this movie. It isn't funny, it isn't witty, it tries to be serious at times and just kills any humor that it could have had. I really wish I could get back the time I spent wasted on this movie.
Little effort, few laughs I was surprised by just how bad this was, especially after hearing nothing but praise from friends and coworkers. It's self indulgent, trite crap. If the big names and faces are all you want, it might be for you. Otherwise pass. Genuine humor is not to be found.
Horrible! How are the ratings so high on this??? Worst movie I have ever seen. Don't waste your money. They should have paid me to watch this garbage, and yes I saw the whole thing in hopes it would get better. Once Michael Cera died the only slightly amusing oart was gone.
Disappointing I rented this, expecting a funny apocalyptic movie loaded with big names. Sure, there were big names. But the dialog was awkward and the story dragged on, while you vaguely wondered where it was going. I used a free rental on this, and it wasn't worth that or the 2 hours of my life I can never get back.
Embarrassed to be American Crude jokes are not usually intelligent. To me, every-time you insert a curse word in you your dialog, you lack skill or intelligence in your writing. These guys are truly talented and have great chemistry. It is a shame this is overshadowed by crudeness.
Just bad This movie was horrible. The jokes were bad. They weren't funny and had too much profanity. I laughed very few times and I laugh at almost anything. I like all the actors in this movie but together they just didn't do well
Taking sophmorish humor to a new low I must be getting too old for the toilet humor that this movie exploits, I actually found myself getting angry as my teenage kids laughed at jokes that just disgusted me. I ended up walking out on this one,,,
Hilarious Very unexpectedly funny. I watched this without even knowing it was a comedy (or the name of the movie for that matter) but when I found myself laughing so hard so early in the movie I knew it had to be. A must watch!
Hollywood's Funniest Mashed Up Social Greatness! With a cast of the current Hollywood "funny" guys, it is hard to go wrong. The show has what appears to be the dumbest plot but this crew takes this lemon and turns it into lemonade! I laughed throughout the entire movie! If you liked Wedding Crashers, Hangover or similar, you will definitely like "This Is The End"! ~Chronicle Mashed Up
Waste of time This story is about what it would be like for actors if dooms day was upon us...it's really kind of dumb. My advice, don't waste your time or money. this movie was a major failure for all actors involved.
Love it! I dont get why people say they hate this movie. If you think a stupid comedy is stupid......maybe you shouldnt watch it? Its supposed to be stupid. Dont judge a stupid movie when the movie is supposed to be stupid. Its funny BECAUSE its stupid. So people, just shut up..... Thanks :)
Are you serious?! I am so frustrated... Not because of the movie...but because of some people's hack reviews! T1 rider...are you retarded? That's a rhetorical question cause you obviously must be.... This movie was hilarious, much like all of the other movies this group has done. You must be a hipster...cause it's a very well known and beloved movie an you act as if you're "too good" for it. What a turd. The humor was Awesome but I guess not for everyone (I'm lookin at you, guy) and the acting was amazing.
Stupid but funny I honestly thought this movie was really dumb, but it was so dumb that I kinda liked it. The humor ridiculous. The acting as always with Seth Rogen movies, horrible. But, it wasn't unbearable. Some parts were so funny, I couldn't turn it off. I'm not a Seth Rogen fan whatsoever. I think he sucks. But, this was actually a funny movie.
Funny I've watched this many times and it's still entertaining. Idk why some ppl rated it down, they are probably the kind of ppl who like dumb and dumber... anyway this was funny, the actors all play themselves so it's great it's abit of an exaggeration of what everyone thinks they are like
Bad and unfunny Bad, boringly bad. I expected the movie to be mildly funny, but it was just bad and unfunny. It was shot with a camera, but it is actually sad to think that anybody could think that this is a movie. Perhaps it got better on the second half, I will never know.
"This is the End" - Movie Review I really, really like this movie. It made me laugh so many times I lost count. The reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because the story in this movie is a bit "meh". I didn't think the acting was bad but it wasn't all that good either. But in the movie they make fun of each other's acting so I guess they're playing on that. The comedy was also really creative at times. It does have a lot of dick and poop jokes but they fit their characters. (B+)
Hilarious if you love stupid funny movies !!! Who cares about the profanity. These actors are known for swearing ALL the time. The movie is rated R anyway so you're bound to come across swears. Great Movie! ! People who don't like it probably don't have a great sense of humor. Because nothing was offensive, people are just a little too sensitive. Relax.
THIS IS THE END IN THE LAST FEW YEARS THIS CAST HAVE GOT TOGETHER WITH SEVERAL OTHERS AND PUT TOGETHER A SIMILAR STYLE OF COMEDY. PERSONALLY I FIND THIS MODERN SLAPSTICK A LAUGH RIOT. THEY ALWAYS HAVE TAKE AWAY LINES TO ENJOY WITH OTHERS WHO ARE FANS. IF COSBY OR SIENFELD ARE YOUR THING AND YOU BUY OR RENT THIS MOVIE YOU LOOSE YOUR RIGHT TO COMPLAIN. IF GRUMBLING IS A PASS TIME THAT SATISFYS YOU, MAY I SUGGEST THE COST OF LIVING . HAVE FUN
Backstreets back ALRIGHT lmao. I'm not into comedy films but this one had the chemistry of the group that made me laugh. Love James Franco and Danny was hillarious. Jay is just adorkable. I saw it yesterday I just kept laughing. Honestly I Watched it because Jay did hiccup from how tk train your dragon and was only interested hearing his voice but man it was hillarious
Foul, Offensive, and Horrible... ....this movie is all these things if you have absolutely no sense of humor. This movie was one of those that you shut down your brain for and just enjoy. If you take it too seriously, and expect something Academy Award grade, of course you are going to be disappointed...personally, I thought it was an awesome movie for some cheap laughs.
Painful This was one of the most painful movies to watch. The entire cast is playing themselves, there is a vague story line, and overall it's them trying to preserve their food source. Watch anything else.
Meh That's how I feel. Wasn't too funny, the story was pretty lame, the effects were just "alright", the ending felt rushed after a slow build-up. The way they get "saved" also doesn't make much sense. It bothers me when movies take a philosophical topic on morality and ethics and turns it into a shallow "let's just be nice" solution. :/
If you rated bad you didn't get it It's obviously not a great movie for its spectacular writing. You have to know you're watching something stupid then you can really enjoy it. It's kinda like Austin Powers or Dumb and Dumber.
Funny but dumb ,slightly irritating Great actors, but comedy is no better then sitting in the Stoner room talking with friends. And a few actors were so annoying in their rules that I almost stopped watching. No creativity
Unexpected comedy gold I seen the previews for this movie, yet I didn't know the plot. I finally purchased it. There are so many wrongs, it makes it right. There is a cornucopia of cameos, quick witted dialog, a bevy of visually beautiful scenes and unexpected turns.
POS A ridiculous concept by self involved douche bags. You're not that interesting or good people. Leave the creativity and comedy to the writers that made your careers. Anyone involved in this movie should be blacklisted from any further entertainment career.
