Comedian Pot Pie

By MedRed
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....

Where is the story?
