This Is The End (2013)

Actor Jay Baruchel is visiting Los Angeles, which he hates, in order to spend some time with his buddy actor Seth Rogen. Rogen talks Baruchel into going to a big party at actor James Franco's house where there are a lot of actor friends and celebrities attending. But what at first seems like a massive 9. earthquake, which swallows most of the party guests up, turns out to be the Apocalypse. This irreverent (and to some probably blasphemous) comedy combines outrageous satire with adolescent humor (the usual penis and urine jokes) but let's be honest. Adolescent humor can be very funny! The movie tickles your funny bone more than not and you have to hand it to its game cast for satirizing their own images, all actors playing themselves or what we perceive them to be at their worst, egos and all. I laughed a lot at its brazen silliness. Probably not for everybody but for its targeted audience, a hilarious time to be had. Directed by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen. With Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Emma Watson, Rihanna, Michael Cera, Mindy Kaling, David Krumholtz, Channing Tatum and The Backstreet Boys.
