Writers Rogen and Goldberg run out of ideas before the second act and just half a** it until the end credits...

The loose structure lazily rushes out plot points late in the game

...runs on some delicious self-critique.

The best thing about This Is the End is playing "spot-the-celebrity" in the early frames. Do this, and you'll find everyone from Jason Segel to David Krumholtz. If all that talent were put to better use, the film might have been worth watching.

That Rogen and Goldberg make one of the Backstreet Boys' more annoying yesteryear hit singles something you giddily sing along to is a measure of just how on point the satire is--that, or that it truly *is* the end of the world.

Enjoyable, time-killing piece of throwaway Friday-night pap... It's broad, stupid fun that, against all odds, ends up coagulating into an actual story with a point.

...a very savvy send up of the way we perceive celebrities as vapid and self-involved ciphers who are so often flattered and coddled that they come to accept applause as their due.

If your tolerance for druggy banter and puerile sex gags is low then the idea of facing Armageddon with Rogen and his chums will probably strike you as hell.

At its best it's a film about people getting lost in the fiction of their own creations.

If you're familiar with their previous films, you'll be laughing often and laughing loudly.

If Fast and Furious 6 was stupid in the bad way, This is the End is stupid in the best and funniest way.

An elaborate in-joke and everyone's in on the gag

It's a giant Hollywood in-joke, but one that invites you to share in the laughter.
July 18, 2013
One of the funniest films of the year so far.

Near-the-knuckle comedy that proves self-indulgent laughs, when done right, can be hilarious.
July 17, 2013
A funny self-aware critique of the actors' indulgences - along with several violent deaths, demonic monsters and dick jokes. There are lots of dick jokes.

This is the End is one of the most fun movies I've seen in ages. It's a silly extravaganza, a huge bunch of nonsense, but, boy, it's entertaining ... This film is one big in-joke, but it's a very good one.

Never reaches the heights of earlier collaborations Superbad and Pineapple Express. However, it has a belligerent, depraved, coked-up Michael Cera, and that is a treat unique to this film and this film only, so it's certainly worth your time.

While bewildering for those unfamiliar with the Judd Apatow clan, for fans, this raunchy, daring and gleeful comedy comes up trumps.

The Is The End feels throughout like a feature-length inside joke, but Rogen and company are generous enough to let the audience in on the gag.
