A ridiculous, hilarious, and probably realistic post-Rapture disaster comedy.
|Emma Watson's extended cameo is terrific.|
I had a wonderful time, and once again, I have to thank the audience at the Somerville Theater for their complete attention and engagement. Consistently the best audiences of any theater. It's true that the boneheads behind us at Oblivion were the worst kind of self-absorbed useless morons, but no one cared about Oblivion. An "anticipated" movie like This Is The End, or the last movie I saw on this same screen - Star Trek Into Darkness, the audience is locked-in and enthusiastic. I am perfectly content to laugh my ass off when no one else is interested in a movie - just ask my wife for her impression of me laughing in a movie theater - but it certainly enhances a movie, especially a comedy, if the audience cares.
