Ever wondered what would happen to actors like James Franco, Emma Watson and Seth Rogen when the world ends? Here's our review of the hilarious, This Is The End...

What's the film about?

Seth Rogen and his pal Jay Baruchel are just planning to pop over to James Franco's house party for a couple of hours, but then the apocalypse kind of ruins their plans. Now they are stuck in James Franco's house while the world comes to an end. Let the fun begin...

Who's in it? Jonah Hill, James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Aziz Ansari, Craig Robinson, Jason Segel, Emma Watson, Michael Cera, Paul Rudd, Kevin Hart, Rihanna, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Channing Tatum

Handbag hearts:

Everything about this film! While we all had to go through that silly "OMG the Mayans predict the world will end in 2012" countdown, these lot decided it was the perfect subject for a new film.

Starring as caricatures of themselves, we get to watch James Franco, Jonah Hill and all the other hilarious actors muck around like idiots for a couple of hours.

What more can you want really?

There is a story line believe it or not, Jay Baruchel plays Seth Rogen's best friend who just doesn't like all Seth's other showbiz pals.

This is made all the more awkward when they are all stuck together while the world around them is crumbling to pieces.

You can't help but LOL throughout this film, especially as it becomes more and more obvious that the guys aren't coping well in their confined living space.

Oh and there is an explanation for the apocalypse as well and it's a bit too realistic for our liking visually, who knew the film was going to have such an interesting inspiration?


The film does start to drag a little bit and for a comedy it is a tad too long. But there are so many funny moments that we can forget about this little blip.

Oh and we just can't handle the thing that happens with Johah Hill and the demon. FREAKY!

Standout Moment: We can't even pick one, the Rihanna b*tchslap, coked-up Michael Cera getting a blow job, Emma Watson going crazy or the thing that happens with Channing Tatum. There are too many to choose...

Verdict: Everything you can expect from the brains that brought you Superbad and Pineapple Express, you don't want to miss this film. The world could end tomorrow for all we know. 4 stars

P.S. The ending of the film is too awesome for words to even describe.

This Is The End is in cinemas from 28 June 2013.

What do you think? Will you be watching the flick this weekend?
