This Is The End, 2013 film starring James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Craig Robinson and Danny McBride. The end of the world comes to an end at James Franco’s house while everyone is stoned!!
As all the Hollywood stars gather at James Franco’s new house for a massive party God’s Rapture begins. It swallows homes and people, even the stars. With fire and brimstone everywhere it becomes clear that those who God wants in Heaven are lifted up by the magnificent blue light, those left must fend for themselves, that includes Franco, Rogen, Hill, Baruchel and Robinson!
Funny, funny stuff. You almost have to be loaded or high as a kite yourself to really enjoy this one. I was laughing from the get go, Rogen plays such a good stoner, if indeed he is acting! Couple that with a typical Hollywood party filled with booze, drugs and women you have a full on laugh fest. I couldn’t stop laughing when such stars as Rihanna got swallowed up in the giant sinkhole outside Franco’s house. This film didn’t really have a plot line to it other than the rapture happening but you didn’t need it, it was just one two hour stretch of comedy and ad-libing throughout. The acting was good and funny because they were all playing themselves, what a fresh approach!
If you haven’t seen this one you should at least once but beware, there are so many references to sexual exploits, lots of swearing and loads of booze/drugs but it’s all in fun. I’m going four out of five because I don’t think the critics on most sites were right, they were not to kind to it but I enjoyed the crazy ride and was fully entertained. Great Job.
