Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
It's the wildest screen comedy in a long time, and also the smartest, the most fearlessly inspired, and the snort-out-loud funniest.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Richard Roeper
In its own sloppy, raunchy, sophomoric, occasionally self-pleased and consistently energetic way, This Is the End is just about perfect at...

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

By Joe Williams
A one-joke movie, but it’s a joke whose recurring rimshots grow as loud as our laughter.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers

Outrageous-plus, but often hilarious.

By Bob Mondello
That film is far more interesting in concept, and infinitely more elegant in execution, than what Rogen and his buddies have cooked up in...

Occupies an odd middle ground between their Apatow-produced bromances, the giddy gruesomeness of the recent “Aftershock” and the confined...

By the time September arrives, This is the End will probably be in the running for "funniest comedy of the 2013 summer."

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
The film is uneven and about 15 minutes too long. But when it's funny, it's hilarious.

Comedian Pot Pie

This is the End throws almost every flavor of young(ish), modern, comedic actor into an out-of-left-field apocalypse setting. Instead of blending into a homogenous smoothie and serving chilled, This...

Possibly the worst movie I've ever seen...

By misskariw
I'm VERY forgiving when it comes to whether or not I like a movie...and I say NO WAY! This movie was vulgar, gory, sacreligious, crude, disgusting, and just plain out not funny....


By ajmatteo
The jokes were hysterical as they continue to make fun of each other. They try to overcome their egos and selfishness for the good of their best friends which is difficult for them. Really enjoyed...

Hilairously thought provoking!

By Pa3cya
No, not really just HILARIOUS! If you find it thought provoking it's probably because you are smoking something and goodie for you. I don't want to spoil anything. If any of these main actors made...

You HAVE to watch this movie. Seth Rogen did a fantastic job as a producer, and not one moment was dull. Non stop laughter, nothing disappointing whatsoever. To the idiot critics that gave it...


By ericriggs
I don't understand all the "Go" and "Must Go" reviews. "The End" was not at all funny. Unless you like one liner "di*k jokes. Seriously, save your money....

Where is the story?

By krisefisher
This movie had some funny parts, but mostly, I sat there thinking I was watching a movie my teenage son made at home. The humor was very juvenile. The underlying message was not thought provoking,...

By ylanda71
This movie is freakin' hilarious from beginning to end. In my opinion there was no star as Seth, Jay, James, Craig, Jonah and Danny had parts that were funny as heck. Everyone in the audience was...

Funniest Horror Flick you will ever see

By Leeswangerclevite
