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

An early idea for the story had the film taking place at a studio where a Busta Rhymes music video shoot was taking place, with the main characters present when the apocalypse begins. See more »
Approximately 56:23 into the movie, the camera is showing James Franco on the floor above and the backs of Danny McBride and Seth Rogen. Rogen is visibly cracking up. Yet, when the camera is showing their faces, they're straight-face. See more »

I thoroughly enjoyed the film, though in retrospect, I am not sure if it is really a great film--there's not much to compare it to. One thing's for certain: this film is not "just like" any other film you could name. It is one of the funniest films I have seen in quite a while. And I am probably going to miss the Rapture as a result of my enjoyment.
The film has graphic sex talk and graphic violence. The dialog could hardly be any nastier. And of course, hardly more sacrilegious. However, despite all of that, the film is surprisingly good-natured.
This is not a film for children or for family viewing. Anyone who is squeamish or easily offended should stay away.
And don't automatically assume that anyone over 40 would not like this film. I'm over 60; I had a great time. So I saw it a second time, and loved it even more.
