There's wonder here that films with quadruple the effects budget would kill for.

The film is more guileful than it looks, even though the narrative is nuts ...

Blithe, beautifully acted and refreshingly free of fancy SFX, This Is The End pokes fun at generic film-making, without ever seeming self-righteous.
June 28, 2013
A cheerfully crass, enjoyably puerile entertainment that doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel as much as it blows the barrel to pieces with a sawn-off shotgun.

Just one great big goofy joke. Some funny stuff, but a rental/download only.
June 25, 2013
No comedy classic, then, but a good natured and engaging slice of goonish self-mockery.

... the movie definitely struck a chord with the crowd I saw it with ... (with) a climax that brings bromance back ...

This Is the End, true to its subject matter, is as funny as hell.
June 14, 2013
Crass, flimsily plotted, and self-referential to the point of narcissistic personality disorder. For those willing to tolerate such defects, however, it is also very, very funny.
June 13, 2013
The filmmaking itself is disarmingly amusing, hitting grace notes amid the grandiosity.
June 13, 2013
Though This Is the End drags slightly here and there, the filmmakers keep it interesting by making the personal relationships dynamic, and the movie redeems all that is self-referential and self-congratulatory about it with a warmth of spirit.
June 13, 2013
Their big joke is to literalize the Book of Revelations, but snaking around this is a biting contempt for the entertainment business, their own bad movies, and the social privilege these confer.

This Is the End is the bust-out, badass comedy of the summer. And then some. It's so good you'll think you hallucinated it.

Funny is funny, and it would be truly dishonest to deny the big laughs-the spikes of gut-busting inspiration-that the film sporadically delivers.

As long as Rogen and his buddies are just as self-involved, crude, obnoxious and hopefully exaggerated versions of themselves, things stay pretty funny.

"This is the End" finds a balanced tone most horror comedies fail to deliver. Grossout humor melds easily with grossout horror, sometimes at the same moment.
June 12, 2013
"This is one of the most tasteless, ridiculous and funniest comedies of the 21st century."
June 12, 2013
Most of the celebrities playing things straight (Michael Cera is a notable exception, portrayed as a cokehead sex addict who likes blowing cocaine into people's faces without warning).
June 12, 2013
As both homage and send-up, it presents viewers with the ultra-meta image of a comedy genre eating its own tail.
June 12, 2013
It is intensely raunchy and silly and joyous and tapped right into my inner teenager in a glorious way.
