A group of Hollywood's hottest young actors find themselves trapped in James Franco's place during the apocalypse in this irreverent end-of-the-world comedy from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Jay Baruchel might not think much of L.A., but he loves his old pal Seth Rogen, and the moment they reconnect at LAX it's just like old times. Lungs fortified with THC and bellies full of Carl's Jr., Rogen convinces Baruchel to join him for a wild night at James Franco's posh new pad, and by the time they show up the party's in full swing. Michael Cera has snorted enough coke to kill an elephant, and shortly after Craig Robinson leads a sing-along with Rihanna, Baruchel ducks out for a pack of cigarettes and drags Rogen along with him. Just as Baruchel is planning his escape from the party, however, the earth shifts under their feet and blinding blue lights beam down from the darkened sky, summoning up the saved before all hell literally breaks loose below. Meanwhile, back at Franco's house, the party is still rocking. That quickly changes when the ground opens up, sparking a bloodbath that only ends when Franco, Hill, Rogen, Baruchel, and Robinson race back inside for shelter. Awakening the next morning to the sight of Danny McBride eating all of their food, the group scramble to fortify the house and make sense of the situation as the infighting among them escalates. Later, when demonic intrusion and dwindling supplies force the survivors outside, they quickly find that the situation is much worse than they ever suspected, but that there may be a way out that no one has yet considered.
The funniest part of the movie is that they are playing themselves, sort of. Seems like trying to be funny by being over the top is a lack of imagination.
Great cast, but weak story. Had its funny moments, but I probably wouldn't recommend it.
Way better than expected. Hilarious and fun. Great cameos.
Great movie. Funny, great cameos. Would watch it again, fer sure.
Very funny and completely over the top. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually wish there were more celebrity cameos beyond the Apatow clan.
pf - pretty funny
