    Entertainment WeeklyOwen 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.

    Chicago Sun-TimesRichard Roeper

    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.

    Outrageous-plus, but often hilarious.

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

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

    The Hollywood ReporterTodd 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.
