Directors: Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg
Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel’s friendship is tested when Jay comes to visit Seth in LA. Jay is forced to hang out with Seth’s new friends, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride, and a whole lot of other people. Shit goes down when these big holes appear out of no where and beams of light are taking people. Jay and Seth are stuck with James, Jonah, and Craig. The team must find a way to save their lives!
Okay, I could go on in detail what happened, but I wont. Here’s a short of it. It’s the apocalypse and the team needs to survive it. Those who can’t be saved fell into the holes and those who are good were beamed up. The guys need to figure out how they can be beamed up. But through out the film we just see them trying to live together. They don’t figure it out that it’s the apocalypse ’til near the end.
This movie is pretty funny. Not their best movies, but I did laugh a lot. It was pretty cool how these actors made fun of themselves through out the whole movie. They all poked fun at each other’s movies, especially Franco’s because they were stuck in his house and a lot of his props were showing up.
I guess if I really wanted to go in depth with the film, the theme of friendship was great. Jay and Seth knew they wanted to save their friendship by spending time together but it wasn’t until this situation that their bond grew stronger.
You can tell that this movie was created a while ago. Mainly because Jonah is still big compared to what he looks like now.
SO MANY PEOPLE! Seriously, there were so many people. Michael Cera was crazyyyyy. McLovin was there. Bad girl RiRi made an appearance. Emma Watson’s scenes were AWESOME! So many Hermione jokes…so little time. The BEST part of the film was that Backstreet Boys performed in HEAVEN! If this is real, I can’t wait for it!
Best movie? No. Funny and good for quick laughs? Yes.
My Rating: 6/10
