This is the End

Rated 3.0

A scruffy cast of Hollywood comedians—Seth Rogan, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel—is holed up at James Franco’s house as the apocalypse devours the world outside. Everyone’s playing versions of their real-life selves, and while the sum of their parts doesn’t equal their best previous individual or collaborative efforts (Pineapple Express, Superbad, Knocked Up, The Office, Eastbound & Down), it’s fun just having all the likeable comedians in one place together. They are each naturally funny (especially McBride in full-on selfish-pig mode) and riff so well off one another that this twisted comedic version of bunker-horror provides plenty of ridiculousness to laugh at and plenty of gross-out shocks to keep things moving briskly all the way up to the heavenly climax. Cinemark 14, Feather River Cinemas and Paradise Cinema 7. Rated R.
