Bottom Line: Franco, Rogen, Hill, McBride and a well-known cast of thousands  – well a dozen or so – star and play themselves partying it up Hollywood-style in this end-of-the-world, raunchy, shameless, post-apocalyptic, self-deprecating, sophomoric, frat boy kegger sci-fi comedy (sci-fomedy?!)…  It all boils down to a one-note story, but still happens to be one of the most giddily irreverent, riotously goofy and hilariously unhinged flicks I’ve seen in a long time…  You might hate it, but I guess that would only be a wakeup call to get over yourself, let loose and have a little fun.  A blast from start to finish, I’m hoping thoughts of some sort of follow-up don't take this movie's title too literally.
