If you have either eyeballs or earballs, you know that Apocalyptic, End of the World, Doomsday Raptureporn is all the rage in Hollywood these days.
You’ve got your World War Zs, your Oblivions, your Seeking a Friend For the End of the Worlds.
As such, you want to make your Apocalypse movie stand out. You want some kind of new take. Especially in a comedy.
This is the End does not really offer a new take. So as a rapture film, it’s kind of dull. As a “bunch of dudes hanging out” movie, though, it’s expectedly hilarious.
