Consensus: Energetic, self-deprecating performances and enough guffaw-inducing humor make up for the flaws in This Is the End loosely written script.

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

If you hate the Rogen/Apatow crew, you will hate this movie. For the rest of us, it's comedy Heaven.

This Is the End is a laugh riot. Has Seth Rogen ever been in a bad movie? His lowest rated movie per RottenTomatoes is The Watch (16%), but I thought that was a… More

The apocalypse, again, but this time its for some B-list actors (you know them all, seen them all before, and there's a little of been there, done that in… More

funny enough, and the hilarious cameos certainly didn't hurt, but it's nowhere near as good as Neighbors.

Incredibly zany "This Is the End" is an unexpected treat. What could have been a bunch of affected A-listers parading around for no reason except to… More
