Seth Rogen. Does that name mean anything to you? Well, unless you have been living in a cave for the past seven years or so, I think it certainly should. The infamous raunchy but utterly lovable Vancouver, Canada-born funnyman is notorious for his outrageous writing and acting, in such memorable films like Superbad (even if his role was still a bit small there, what role he did have, certainly left an impression, alright), Knocked Up, Funny People, The Green Hornet, and more. Really, this lovable confessed stoner of Jewish decent has made quiet a splash in the past while. Now, for the second name. Evan Goldberg. Does that name mean anything to you? What? It doesn't? Well, it should. Sure, the man has never done much acting, but he is the seldom known, or appreciated co-writer and good close friend of Rogen's, who has helped him pen many of there past scripts, including what finally leads us to our main topic, the new movie which has been written by them, again,and is also directed by the both of them, garnering Seth Rogen his first (co) directing credit to date. And, of course, that film is, This is the End. A incredibly raunchy, but very smart and even a little poignant, disaster-satire film that actually raises a few good points. The plot concerns, at least, at first, Seth Rogen, who, like every single other comedic actor in this film, playing a version of himself, who picks up his good friend Jay Baruchel, who has come to visit him in Las Angeles. Now, after knocking around with a few random "activities" of there's, Seth Rogen invites Jay to a party held that night at James Franco's house. once there, the friends begin to mingle with a long list of great comedic actors, including extensive cameos, with many actors such as Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride, Michael Cera, Emma Watson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Rihanna, Kevin Hart, Paul Rudd, and more. But, once a apocalyptic disaster strikes the city and kills over nearly everyone at the party, except for Rogen, Hill, Baruchel, Robinson, Franco and McBride. Now, the films strengths are purely in the writing and casting, as this impressive list of actors "do there thing" 107 ridiculously spontaneous, but admittedly clever moments, rarely pausing for us to stop laughing and take a breather. But, than, near the end, the film takes a route that I was not expecting at all, and, no, this is not a complain. Quiet the opposite, it took a surprisingly thoughtful, if still crude take on there apocalyptic situation, and the possibilities of a biblical rapture that they may have to face. Along the way, there are far too many set-ups that while are often very, very funny and well done, there ends up being so many jokes and material being flung at the screen, that really, we almost get tired of these jokes. Really, that is actually a rather bizarre complaint, isn't it? That I grew slightly wary of all the great set-ups? Oh well, it definitely a great time at the movies, and it is certainly more thoughtful and provoking that it probably ever even needed to be, at all. now, This is the End contains a endless, non-stop barrage of crude sexual content and jokes that run throughout the film, resulting in many, many jokes about masturbation, urine and other bodily functions, including even an early scene where a very strange and crude sexual act is performed on a rather "crazy" character. Also, considering that this film was a comedy, there is also an incredible amount of gruesome violence, even if much of it looks rather fake. People are decapitated, they have there heads squished and kicked into jello, people have there limbs ripped off, and, in one instance, a character even has a street lamp flung through his chest, with copious amounts of blood and gore fully on display, here. Also, there is a equally extensive amount of drug use, including many, many scenes of comical cocaine, marijuana and ecstasy use, resulting in several hallucinatory trips. And, finally, this film has strong language throughout, including nearly 250 uses of F--k, but many, many uses of other words such as sh-t, g-dd-mn, h--l, c-nt, d-ck, c-ck, c-m, wh-re, b-tch, jesus, and more. So, This is the End may actually be a little to clever and self-aware for it's own good, gradually causing the laughter to make up for a tiring and fairly lethargic 107 minute running time. Still, this is a hilarious time that fans of these actors will absolutely not regret checking out. Reccomended.
