Have you ever wondered what it would be like if a bunch of celebrities got stuck in a house during the apocalypse? No? Well, you should see This is the End anyway. It’s hilarious.
The premise is this: James Franco is having a party at his new house. A ton of his celebrity friends are there, and during the party, the rapture decides to happen and a bunch of them are left behind to try and survive. I know, it sounds ridiculous. That’s because it is. This is not a movie to be taken seriously, in the slightest, and that’s the attitude you have to go in with. I was expecting a ludicrous good time, and that’s exactly what we got.
The main cast have great chemistry together, especially considering they’re all playing themselves. I think it would be harder to play myself than to pretend to be someone else. I could be totally wrong, but regardless, these guys all do a stellar job.
Deep thoughts? No. A marijuana induced sequel to Pineapple Express? Yes. A devil type figure with a huge flaming cock? Absolutely yes. For what it is, I give it a solid 4.5/5. Anything that makes me laugh that much is a good time, and I would totally watch this one again.
