This Is the End – a second opinion

New from The Movie Snob

This Is the End  (D).  Mom Under Cover reviewed this movie a little while back (click here for her take), so I’ll add only a short note.  I think my grade is lower than hers because my expectations were higher.  The premise seemed so promising—a bunch of movie stars playing themselves are having a party at James Franco’s house when they are suddenly confronted with a real Book-of-Revelation-style apocalypse.  But as Mom Under Cover hints, the vulgarity and crassness are beyond description—probably something like Your Highness, reviewed by The Borg Queen on this site.  There are a few humorous moments, and I thought it was interesting to get Hollywood’s take on Christian eschatology, but overall I cannot say I enjoyed it.
