    In its own sloppy, raunchy, sophomoric, occasionally self-pleased and consistently energetic way, This Is the End is just about perfect at executing its mission, which is to poke fun at its stars, exhaust every R-rated possibility to get a laugh, and even sneak in a few insights into Hollywood, the celebrity culture and the nature of faith.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • 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.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    From the clockwork comic timing to the movie's salty mix of the ridiculous and the reflective, This Is the End is stupidly hysterical and smartly heretical. Cross my heart and hope to die, it's funny as hell.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Odie Henderson

    This is the End finds a balanced tone most horror comedies fail to deliver. Grossout humor melds easily with grossout horror, sometimes at the same moment. Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    There's no way you won't have a blast. In their directing debuts, Rogen and Goldberg come up aces, mixing hilarity and horror like pros and never letting up on the killer momentum.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Joe Williams

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

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Outrageous-plus, but often hilarious.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    There are no boundaries in this movie, so deal with it or leave.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    With less intelligence behind it, this could have easily been one of those films that seem like they were more fun to make than to watch. Instead, it's a thoroughly good time at the movies, from humble beginning to cosmic, surprise-cameo-featuring end.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Beth Hanna

    Rises above the over-tired gross-out comedy genre partly because of its meta celebrities-parodying-themselves trick, but it mostly stands out because it's genuinely funny.

  • 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 This Is the End — but I've gotta admit, it's not nearly as funny.

    NPR Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    It is intensely raunchy and silly and joyous and tapped right into my inner teenager in a glorious way.

    Time Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The Is the End is a different take on the R-rated comedy, a raunchy laugh riot that actually gives you a little to think about.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Matt Maytum

    As a celebrity’s-eye-view apocalypse movie, This Is The End delivers huge guffaws and large-scale carnage with enough gusto to mask the indulgences. You’ll never look at Michael Cera in the same way again.

    Total Film Full Review
  • William Goss

    Occupies an odd middle ground between their Apatow-produced bromances, the giddy gruesomeness of the recent “Aftershock” and the confined social abrasiveness of “It’s a Disaster.” Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

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

    USA Today Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Out-of-control hilarious.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    This Is the End is a marvelously sustained, high-wire goof – a movie so nutty and daring, so crazy and out-there, that it feels like a low-budget independent except with big stars and a sizable budget.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    An often hilarious/generally irreverent comedy.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    [A] crass, patchy, often shamelessly funny farce.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

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

  • Kyle Smith

    There is stuff in This Is the End that had me laughing so hard, I sensed new body parts joining in to help out — my pancreas was heaving, my bile ducts ripped.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    After going this far, both in raunchy bad-boyism and mock-apologetic love-us shamelessness, they've effectively blown up their own formula. That's not a bad thing. This is the end; now it's time to try for more.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    It also expresses the anxiety and insecurity of comics conscious of the big issues in life they are expected either to avoid or make fun of in their work. Rogen and Goldberg take the latter approach here, in an immature but sometimes surprisingly upfront way one can interpret seriously. Or not.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    This directing debut for co-writers Rogen and Evan Goldberg offsets its slightly smug premise with a clever sense of self-parody and near-cataclysmic levels of vulgarity.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Maybe it has something to do with Jewish writers riffing on the apocalypse, but This Is the End doesn’t really know how to end.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Funny is funny, and it would be truly dishonest to deny the big laughs—the spikes of gut-busting inspiration—that the film sporadically delivers.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Mike McCahill

    This apocalypse isn’t a nightmare so much as the ultimate bromantic fantasy, one in which – with the removal of any responsibility – the boys are free to bicker, banter, and bed down together.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    No comedy classic, then, but a good natured and engaging slice of goonish self-mockery.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    Some funny stuff, but a rental/download only.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The film, at its phoned-in worst and also at its riotous best, has a terminal feeling. It suggests that a comic subgenre based on the immaturity, sexual panic and self-mocking tendencies of men who should be old enough to know better has reached its expiration date.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    The real point of This is The End, however, is to make people laugh -- and it accomplishes that. Often, in fact -- and satisfyingly.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Some of that fun is infectious. For a while. Maybe 45 minutes. But when actors look as if they’re having a better time than you are, the buzz wears off fast. You turn into a wallflower at an especially obnoxious party.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    I enjoyed the hell out of it for a while, but it got irritating and self-congratulatory long before it was over and I desperately do not want to see it again. Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Rogen and his friends may have set out to celebrate virtue at its uneasiest, but they’re clearly still most at home with earthly delights.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Jesse Cataldo

    It's disheartening that, despite some half-hearted overtures toward shifting the comedy paradigm, the filmmakers make little attempt to expand their comedic palette.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    Your mileage with the movie will depend on how much you like these guys to begin with, because even if you're a fan, the one joke premise has a hard time sustaining a full length movie.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    It's no minor accomplishment to make one of the most indulgent projects in Hollywood history. But with This Is the End, Seth Rogen and his pals have indeed achieved this dubious goal.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    It’s a hit-and-mostly-miss affair: For every gut-buster like McBride and Franco’s lengthy exchange about drenching each other in seminal fluid, there’s a fall-flat gag.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    There are a few laughs at the start of This Is the End, and a couple more at the end of This is the End. As for the endless middle, it’s middling.

    Is the movie fun? Yes, for half the time. An hour would have sufficed. [24 June 2013, p.84]
