Richard Roeper
Chicago Sun-Times

In its own sloppy, raunchy, sophomoric, occasionally self-pleased and consistently energetic way, This Is the End is just about perfect at executing its mission, which is to poke fun at its stars, exhaust every R-rated possibility to get a laugh, and even sneak in a few insights into Hollywood, the celebrity culture and the nature of faith.

Owen Gleiberman
Entertainment Weekly

It's the wildest screen comedy in a long time, and also the smartest, the most fearlessly inspired, and the snort-out-loud funniest.

Betsy Sharkey
Los Angeles Times

From the clockwork comic timing to the movie's salty mix of the ridiculous and the reflective, This Is the End is stupidly hysterical and smartly heretical. Cross my heart and hope to die, it's funny as hell.

Odie Henderson

This is the End finds a balanced tone most horror comedies fail to deliver. Grossout humor melds easily with grossout horror, sometimes at the same moment.

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

There's no way you won't have a blast. In their directing debuts, Rogen and Goldberg come up aces, mixing hilarity and horror like pros and never letting up on the killer momentum.

Joe Williams
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A one-joke movie, but it’s a joke whose recurring rimshots grow as loud as our laughter.

Michael Phillips
Chicago Tribune

Outrageous-plus, but often hilarious.

Steve Persall
Tampa Bay Times

There are no boundaries in this movie, so deal with it or leave.

Marc Mohan
Portland Oregonian

With less intelligence behind it, this could have easily been one of those films that seem like they were more fun to make than to watch. Instead, it's a thoroughly good time at the movies, from humble beginning to cosmic, surprise-cameo-featuring end.

Beth Hanna

Rises above the over-tired gross-out comedy genre partly because of its meta celebrities-parodying-themselves trick, but it mostly stands out because it's genuinely funny.

Bob Mondello

That film is far more interesting in concept, and infinitely more elegant in execution, than what Rogen and his buddies have cooked up in This Is the End — but I've gotta admit, it's not nearly as funny.

Mary Pols

It is intensely raunchy and silly and joyous and tapped right into my inner teenager in a glorious way.

Bill Goodykoontz
Arizona Republic

The Is the End is a different take on the R-rated comedy, a raunchy laugh riot that actually gives you a little to think about.

Matt Maytum
Total Film

As a celebrity’s-eye-view apocalypse movie, This Is The End delivers huge guffaws and large-scale carnage with enough gusto to mask the indulgences. You’ll never look at Michael Cera in the same way again.

William Goss

Occupies an odd middle ground between their Apatow-produced bromances, the giddy gruesomeness of the recent “Aftershock” and the confined social abrasiveness of “It’s a Disaster.”

Claudia Puig
USA Today

The film is uneven and about 15 minutes too long. But when it's funny, it's hilarious.

Steven Rea
Philadelphia Inquirer

Out-of-control hilarious.

Rene Rodriguez
Miami Herald

This Is the End is a marvelously sustained, high-wire goof – a movie so nutty and daring, so crazy and out-there, that it feels like a low-budget independent except with big stars and a sizable budget.

Roger Moore
McClatchy-Tribune News Service

An often hilarious/generally irreverent comedy.

Ty Burr
Boston Globe

[A] crass, patchy, often shamelessly funny farce.

James Berardinelli

By the time September arrives, This is the End will probably be in the running for "funniest comedy of the 2013 summer."

Kyle Smith
New York Post

There is stuff in This Is the End that had me laughing so hard, I sensed new body parts joining in to help out — my pancreas was heaving, my bile ducts ripped.

Alan Scherstuhl
Village Voice

After going this far, both in raunchy bad-boyism and mock-apologetic love-us shamelessness, they've effectively blown up their own formula. That's not a bad thing. This is the end; now it's time to try for more.

Todd McCarthy
The Hollywood Reporter

It also expresses the anxiety and insecurity of comics conscious of the big issues in life they are expected either to avoid or make fun of in their work. Rogen and Goldberg take the latter approach here, in an immature but sometimes surprisingly upfront way one can interpret seriously. Or not.

Justin Chang

This directing debut for co-writers Rogen and Evan Goldberg offsets its slightly smug premise with a clever sense of self-parody and near-cataclysmic levels of vulgarity.

Marjorie Baumgarten
Austin Chronicle

Maybe it has something to do with Jewish writers riffing on the apocalypse, but This Is the End doesn’t really know how to end.

A.A. Dowd
The A.V. Club

Funny is funny, and it would be truly dishonest to deny the big laughs—the spikes of gut-busting inspiration—that the film sporadically delivers.

Mike McCahill
The Telegraph

This apocalypse isn’t a nightmare so much as the ultimate bromantic fantasy, one in which – with the removal of any responsibility – the boys are free to bicker, banter, and bed down together.

Tom Huddleston
Time Out London

No comedy classic, then, but a good natured and engaging slice of goonish self-mockery.

Peter Bradshaw
The Guardian

Some funny stuff, but a rental/download only.

A.O. Scott
The New York Times

The film, at its phoned-in worst and also at its riotous best, has a terminal feeling. It suggests that a comic subgenre based on the immaturity, sexual panic and self-mocking tendencies of men who should be old enough to know better has reached its expiration date.

Mike Scott
New Orleans Times-Picayune

The real point of This is The End, however, is to make people laugh -- and it accomplishes that. Often, in fact -- and satisfyingly.

David Edelstein
New York Magazine (Vulture)

Some of that fun is infectious. For a while. Maybe 45 minutes. But when actors look as if they’re having a better time than you are, the buzz wears off fast. You turn into a wallflower at an especially obnoxious party.

Andrew O'Hehir

I enjoyed the hell out of it for a while, but it got irritating and self-congratulatory long before it was over and I desperately do not want to see it again.

Ann Hornaday
Washington Post

Rogen and his friends may have set out to celebrate virtue at its uneasiest, but they’re clearly still most at home with earthly delights.

Jesse Cataldo
Slant Magazine

It's disheartening that, despite some half-hearted overtures toward shifting the comedy paradigm, the filmmakers make little attempt to expand their comedic palette.

Kevin Jagernauth
The Playlist

Your mileage with the movie will depend on how much you like these guys to begin with, because even if you're a fan, the one joke premise has a hard time sustaining a full length movie.

Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News

It's no minor accomplishment to make one of the most indulgent projects in Hollywood history. But with This Is the End, Seth Rogen and his pals have indeed achieved this dubious goal.

Keith Uhlich
Time Out New York

It’s a hit-and-mostly-miss affair: For every gut-buster like McBride and Franco’s lengthy exchange about drenching each other in seminal fluid, there’s a fall-flat gag.

Rick Groen
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

There are a few laughs at the start of This Is the End, and a couple more at the end of This is the End. As for the endless middle, it’s middling.
