It’s been five years since “Pineapple Express” was released to theaters in 2008. There were some early rumors that this new film would be called “Pineapple Express 2” or even “The End of the World,” however it was changed to “This Is The End.”

This movie has no fictional characters in it. What I mean is everyone in the film stars as themselves. James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson make up the main cast. Emma Watson, Michael Cera, Jason Segel, Paul Rudd, Kevin Hart and Aziz Ansari have supporting roles in the movie.

It all begins with Rogen waiting to pick up his friend Baruchel at the Los Angeles International Airport, better known as LAX. When Baruchel arrives, the two hug and go back to Rogen’s place. Baruchel said he hates L.A. so he only goes there once a year to visit. The two spent a lot of time together playing video games, smoking pot and getting drunk.

Rogen has the great idea of introducing Baruchel to some of his other buddies at James Franco’s home. The two drove over to Franco’s newly-built mansion in the Hollywood Hills. There was a huge party inside—people dancing to loud music, lots of drinking and more smoking weed. This is when Baruchel gets introduced to Rogen’s friends—Franco, Hill, McBride, Robinson, Watson, Cera and Segel.

Baruchel told Rogen that he is not enjoying the party and he wanted to leave. So the two went for a walk around the corner to the local convenience store. This is when all hell breaks loose. A record 9.5-magnitude earthquake rattles southern California. Other customers inside the convenience store get sucked up to heaven with a blue glow around their bodies.

The two ran back to Franco’s house as fast as they could. Everything was going on as normal inside the house as if nothing ever happened. A few seconds later, the house began shaking and everyone ran outside for cover. Then, a large sinkhole opens up and dozens of people get sucked up.

The only survivors were Franco, Hill, Rogen, Baruchel, McBride and Robinson. They spent the rest of the movie trying to find out what was going on. Baruchel was reading the Bible and thought it might be an apocalypse. The others didn’t believe him.

Something happens to Jonah Hill toward the middle of this movie. I’m keeping that one a secret. Who dies and who lives? You’ll have to see the movie to find out those answers.

Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen co-directed this film, which was a first for both of them. Goldberg previously served as executive producer of past Rogen movies such as “Knocked Up,” “Superbad” and “Pineapple Express.” This new film is rated R for crude and sexual content throughout, brief graphic nudity, pervasive language, drug use and some violence. Scenes for “This Is The End” were shot throughout Los Angeles and New Orleans.

I thought this movie was way over the top. There were several parts of this film that I thought no way. I could easily tell it was fake. For example, the blue glowing light and the people getting sucked up into heaven. Also, the dragons and the other weird larger-than-life creatures. “This Is The End” is way more apocalyptic than it is a comedy. Go see this movie if you want, but keep in mind it’s nothing like “Superbad” or “Knocked Up.”

OVERALL RATING: C
