NOTHING RUINS A PARTY LIKE THE END OF THE WORLD.
Jay Baruchel comes to visit Seth Rogen in Beverly Hills for the weekend; they end up at a party at James Franco’s house, which is interrupted by the end of the Earth. Longtime writing partners Rogen and Evan Goldberg made their directing debut with this wild comedy, an expansion of a short film called Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse (2007). Crammed with the kind of childish jokes about smoking pot and jerking off that we’ve seen in so many of their other films. A bumpy ride, often hilarious as satire on reality shows, with a terrific cast (who play exaggerated versions of themselves).
