Seth Rogen, James Franco and friends star in ‘This Is the End,’ an homage and send-up of their career.
Please watch this after watching the previews for "Meet the Millers," and "Grown Ups 2." If you do that, you will feel as if you have just spent 90 minutes in the presence of the cinematic gods. Otherwise, meh...
Do as I did. Go to the Cinema and, before watching this film, watch the previews for "Grown Ups 2" and "We're the Millers." Then watch, "This is the End." You will be glad you did. You will leave not feeling ashamed to be an American or feeling like you live in moron-ville. Dumb-ville, perhaps, but not moron-ville. That's a thumbs up, right?
Seth Rogen finds sure footing after stumbling along as the writer of the less-than-stellar “The Watch” with the wildly inappropriate and funnier-to-boot “This Is The End.” Rogen reteams with co-writer/co-director Evan Goldberg to adapt their nine-minute short “Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse” into a feature film. Rogen’s directorial debut joins the five actors from the short feature (Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Jonah Hill, and Danny McBride)with fellow funny man Craig Robinson as well as a boat-load of cameo appearances from other contemporary comedy giants who all play over-the-top versions of themselves in this horror-comedy that pokes fun at the privileged lives of the Hollywood elite.
