If devastation is all around, some people may want to be with their family and friends to face the world as it falls apart. After viewing Columbia Pictures new film, This is the End, people may want to go to an alternate plan to arrange for emergencies. In this feature film written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who also direct and co-produce with James Weaver, it does not take long for the viewer to see that the people considered “friends” at a party are not the same when danger is near.
This Is The End stars James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, with Michael Cera and Emma Watson, among a huge cast of characters in this comedy.
The following is the language from Colombia Pictures about the rating: “This film has been rated R by the MPAA for crude and sexual content throughout, brief graphic nudity, pervasive language, drug use and some violence.” Viewers beware of the language, especially if you have a different definition of “brief” when it refers to the nudity and “some” violence. There is plenty of all of what is described, and really not as much nudity as I had thought there would be. As crude as it is, I could not help but laugh at some of the story lines about what the characters do in time of need. The sad thing is that these actions may not be too far fetched, as some people may react like this when it comes right down to the end.
At this point of the film’s release in theatres on Wednesday, June 12th, after several promotional screenings, I doubt there is much I can say in this review to spoil certain scenes. There are some very great lines for these actors and a couple that I am not to fond of, but overall, it ends in an upbeat note. One thing I won’t spoil is how and with who Danny McBride’s character spends his days. I totally did not see that one coming!
Viewers who enter the theater will know full well what they are going to see and will be pleasantly surprised at how well their comedic talent works together in the film.
