#54 THIS IS THE END

Directed by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen. Starring James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Emma Watson. Plus plenty of celebrity cameos. 107 minutes.

Jay Baruchel, playing Jay Baruchel arrives in LA to visit Seth Rogen and ends up at a party at James Franco's new house on the eve of Armageddon and I'm pleased to say Armour not gedding out of here!
 

When this is funny it's bloody hilarious and when it's not, it's a tad slow and ploddy, but at 107 minutes it doesn't outstay its welcome. Despite the involvement Seth Rogen this film stands in complete defiance to the Judd Apatow school of American comedy by actually being very funny. The joy comes in watching well-known American actors saying and doing the most outrageous things, Emma Watson is hilarious, Danny McBride, as the self-appointed villain of the piece, just does his schtick, but dialed up to about an 11! And there's a 3rd act cameo that just about steals the entire film, plus a staggering conclusion made this a thoroughly enjoyable movie.

7/10
