Movie Review: This is The End

“What if you were stuck in a house with your friends as the world was ending outside?” says Seth Rogen, who, with his writing and directing partner Evan Goldberg, answers that question in the new comedy This Is The End.

In “This Is The End,” six friends – who just happen to be James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson – are trapped in Franco’s house as the end of the world begins outside. And we’re not talking about any old California-slides-into-the-ocean earthquake… we’re talking the fire-and-brimstone Apocalypse – the real Biblical deal.

Seth Rogen was successful in creating a film that I would love to watch over and over again. This film is peppered with cliché, crass humor, dick jokes which might make some moviegoers cringe. But even if you feel like you are watching a “stupid” film, the timing, the writing and how the funny elements was injected into the film was smartly positioned in such a way that once they hit the punchline, you’re in for a great laugh!

Yes, James Franco plays James Franco, Jonah Hill plays Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen plays Seth Rogen, and so on.  But of course, they’re not really playing themselves. “People think they know everything about you based on the characters you play,” says Rogen.  “So we thought it would be funny to play into that – to have these characters that behave in the way that everybody thinks is what we’re like off-screen.  There are elements of our real selves, but we all twisted them or exaggerated them to make it funny.”
