The Good


This Is the End does eventually end.

The Bad


So terrible, I can't even bring myself to get creative with the list of faults.


Bottom Line

You know This Is the End is a bad movie when my first thought after seeing it is, “What’s the plural of ‘penis?'”

This Is the End

These guys are really, really obsessed with male genitalia.

On the way home from watching This Is the End, I turned to my friend, Josh, and said, “What’s the plural of ‘penis?’ I’m guessing it’s ‘penises.’ It’s not ‘peni,’ is it? I’m going to have to actually Google the plural of ‘penis’ in order to write a review.”

For the record, both ‘penes’ and ‘penises’ are acceptable. Also, This Is the End is a terrible movie. Unless you’ve thoroughly enjoyed all of Seth Rogen’s other movies, there is no way I can recommend this one. The film reaches its humor pinnacle within the first ten minutes. After that, it’s just a slow, agonizing, adolescent descent into penis jokes. Rogen and company’s obsession with penes really is unmatched.

I can’t tell you why This Is the End is getting mostly positive reviews. The only explanation that makes sense to me is that we’re all being punked into seeing it because misery loves company. Do yourself a favor and avoid this movie like the plague. If I could unsee it, I would.
