Directed by Evan Goldberg & Seth Rogen
Actors: James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill
Rotten Tomato summary: The comedy This Is The End follows six friends trapped in a house after a series of strange and catastrophic events devastate Los Angeles. As the world unravels outside, dwindling supplies and cabin fever threaten to tear apart the friendships inside. Eventually, they are forced to leave the house, facing their fate and the true meaning of friendship and redemption.
My comments: The actors were "acting" at being themselves, stuck in James Franco's home during the beginning of the apocolypse (complete with hugely-dangling-penised monster). There were some really funny parts...actually, the whole thing was quite funny, although the whole time I was sitting there I was asking myself, "why?" Definitely entertainment-only spoof of life in the Hollywood Hills.....
