Storyline

All Jay Baruchel expected coming to LA was a fun time with Seth Rogen with all the wild partying to have both by themselves and at James Franco's housewarming party. Suddenly, the Rapture hits and the Biblical Apocalypse has begun. Now, Jay and Seth are desperately sheltering in James' house for rescue along with a few other friends. Together, they must band together to attempt to survive the end of the world, only for Jay to find that they are all too dumb and superficial to do it until they discover the only way out. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

The film appeared to have finished a very successful North American box-office run, falling just short of the one hundred million dollar benchmark for blockbuster status, with over ninety-six million dollars in receipts, then it fell into very limited release by the end of August 2013. While the one hundred million dollar blockbuster goal is no longer considered as unique, or important, as it once was (due to the combination of higher ticket prices and film budgets, as well as the majority of most major films taking in most of their box-office revenue from international markets), Sony Pictures put the film in over two thousand additional theaters for the week of September 6-12, 2013, specifically to aim at getting over the nine-figure benchmark. On September 14, its ninety-fifth day in theaters, it officially reached blockbuster status. See more »

You have to know going in how plot less and ridiculous it will be.
19 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was actually surprised that it was better than I thought it was going to be. I think too many movie-goers hyped it up in their heads that this movie was going to be the most epic comedy of all time. I went in knowing how dumb it was going to be and found it really funny at parts and I liked the dark comedy eased with more immature slapstick comedy. A lot of these negative reviews I've read either have some kind of religious agenda against this movie or were people trying to measure how big their cinema knowledge penis is by citing great foreign films and comparing how much it falls short. It's a stoner comedy made by stoner nerd's that happened to find success and are probably just as baffled as these harsh critics are as to how they achieved it. In a movie filled with celebrity cameos and over the top CGI and humor, it felt to me like it was still a down to Earth movie they probably spent 30 minutes writing and had a blast filming and getting friends together and showed Hollywood excess from the point of view of the outsiders. If you were offended or wrote this movie off because it wasn't up to your standards, you're not the audience this movie had any intention of appeasing. It's obviously a cult comedy that some will love and most will hate which sometimes are the best comedies. It wasn't quite up there with the writer's and actor's other modern day classics but it was totally enjoyable and worth watching again.
