This Is the End review

Demons, earthquakes, and one crazy party. What'd you do last weekend?
This Is the End is a new comedy from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and it is hilarious. The movie stars Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride,   and Emma Watson, with cameos from everyone like Micheal Cera, Rihanna, Paul Rudd, Aziz Ansari, Jason Segel, Kevin Hart, and Channing Tatum. Yeah, it has a lot of famous people in it. Everyone in the movie plays a version of themselves. This actually makes the movie quite a lot funnier because it gives them all a chance to poke fun at their movies and just make fun of everyone. The plot of the This Is the End is that there's a huge party at James Franco's house then the rapture starts and the world starts to end. The whole movie is kind of ridiculous but the dialogue and the actors make it a very funny and enjoyable movie. The CGI demons and landscapes look really cheesy, but that sort of adds to the fun. This Is the End is really a breath of fresh air for the movie industry. 2013 hasn't had one good comedy movie until now. Instead of having to see crap like The Hangover Part III, now you can see comedy gold like this! The movie was so entertaining that even after the credits rolled I still wanted more! It's probably not gonna happen but I wouldn't mind a sequel. Although that's unlikely considering the name of the movie is This Is the End. The actors deliver the hilarious dialogue to a professional degree. I really got to give Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg credit for their funny script. Not only does it have great back and forth and quick witted conversations but just hilariously ridiculous situations for the characters to be in. Even if you took out the apocalypse scenario and the movie was just these guys chilling in James Franco's house it would still be very funny. This Is The End is funny, original, and sometimes weird. I'd certainly recommend it and I think it's a great enjoyable summer film. I certainly hope it's not the end. I give This Is the End 4 out of 5 stars!

  1. Great review Whit. It’s a movie that wants you to have fun, laugh, and above all; enjoy yourself like the end of the world was actually occurring outside of the movie theater.

    1. Thanks! I think this may have been the most enjoyable film of the summer.
