Even if [Rogen] and cowriter/director Evan Goldberg don’t write stoned, heavy use may have impaired their ability to differentiate between a clever idea for a 20-minute sketch and a concept able to sustain 106 minutes. The resultant grating jumble is the mash-up of self-ribbing show-folk satire and Left Behind-style rapture spectacle for which no one was asking.

[Rogen’s] success, and that of his cohorts, is presumably a case of his obsessions (smoking weed, mostly) matching those of his audience. Personally, I find him insufferable. Yet something happens in This Is the End. Playing ‘Seth Rogen’ seems to have freed Rogen to play an actual character, with flaws and some unsavoury details.

Yes, it’s indulgent and scrappy, demanding a high level of familiarity with the leading players and an equally high tolerance for weed smoking and masturbation gags. But it can be truly funny (Cera’s coke-snorting, ass-grabbing wildman is a highlight) and there’s room for a few sharp sideswipes at infantile masculinity and Hollywood hipsterism. No comedy classic, then, but a good natured and engaging slice of goonish self-mockery.
