This is the End

 

Genre: Comedy/Fantasy/Drama

 

Starring: James Granco, Jay Baruchel, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson

 

We all know James Franco and Seth Rogen’s panache for making stoner movies and the fact that they are hardcore BFF’s. This movie takes on a much different approach by making each actor represent themselves. They are playing themselves and how they would normally behave in the same situation. Jay Baruchel is down in LA and is visiting his friend Seth Rogen. He intends to spend some good quality time together but Seth wants him to come to James Franco’s house-warming party. Jay not being very comfortable around Franco and his friends, is not too happy and being forced to go. Just when the party is starting, the ground shakes and before you know it, all the celebrities at Franco’s house are dead save for Franco himself, Rogen, Baruchel, Jonah Hill, McBride and Craig Robinson. The six of them have to battle it out until helps comes their way and they get rescued. Not a very easy task, considering they all are tantrum-throwing celebrities with each having their own lifestyle requirement that gets a little difficult to fulfill with the Apocalypse taking place. The movie is true to the Franco-Rogen style of comedy and is quite hilarious. Yes, it is extremely outrageous but funny at the same time. Cameo appearances from Rihanna, Emma Watson, Paul Rudd, Channing Tatum and many more, just adds to the fun. Don’t try to make sense of what is happening but just go with the flow and enjoy it. If you don’t like their style of stoner comedy then you probably won’t like this one either.

 

Thumbs up: Interesting story, each actor has brilliantly managed to depict an over-exaggerated version of themselves

Thumbs down: The kind of humour is not for everyone

 

Rating: 6.7/10
