- Horrible acting by Rogen1 star

Waste of $$

- Just Awesome5 star

This movie is great. My fiancé and I have watched this every Christmas ever since it’s debut. Can’t wait to watch again this holiday season! 🎄

- This movie is hilarious5 star

Title says it all and it has a really touching plot about the importance of friendship! Fantastic film.

- Degenerate film1 star

Mocks Christmas. Pushes immoral behaviour. Constantly trying to normalise this behaviour. Look around at culture. They've succeeded. Made by and starring J @ws. What a surprise. They run Hollywood. But you can't mention simple facts because it's hate speech.

- Favorite christmas movie in years5 star

It's a good stoner comedy that also has good christmas themes. It's not high brow, but it's good fun and I enjoy watching it around the holidays.

- Awesome Christmas movie.5 star

I’m really starting to like Seth Rogan movies. This movie made me crack up some scenes but overall it’s a really good Christmas movie.

- TOO FUNNY...5 star

This movie was full of laughs and action. I have to give it a five.

- Totally Misses the Mark1 star

I'm surprised so many of the reviewers seem to find this movie funny; it's not. The humor relies almost entirely on voyeuristic, reality-TV-esque exploitation of truly disgusting human behavior, and not in a way that works. As a point of reference, I found the first Hangover film totally hilarious, and was told this was similarly written, but there's no comparison. Despite a talented cast, the writing is lazy and humor is pedestrian. Don't waste your time unless you truly enjoy watching people be completely disgusting just for the sake of doing so (there's no greater point here).

- Garbage1 star

I demand my ¢99 refund.

- Great holiday movie, albeit somewhat sad4 star

It’s ultimately uplifting, but the context hits close to home for those with friends going through a rough time. Having said that, it’s still incredibly funny. Just maybe don’t watch with the family.

- WOW3 star

What, pray tell, the hell did I just watch?!

- Ok not memorable2 star

Meh.. guess I had substantial expectations. James Franco comes through for you though. His performance is always clutch.

- nothing great3 star

it was ok, i was disappointed

- Really just a bad movie1 star

Yeah this is just a bad movie. There's not even really any part of it that's actually funny or good. Huge waste of time.

- Hahahahahah5 star

Hands down I laughed sooo hard I was choking through the whole movie it's awesome and has good music in it! By the time this was done I was grabbing my side it was sore

- Perfect!5 star

Amazing and funny! Perfect even sober!

- AWESOME!!5 star

This movie was Hilarious!! It was an awesome funny movie, WATCH IT! Seth did great, and it is really heartwarming. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

- OUTRAGEOUS laughs😅😅😅😅😅😅5 star

This is a late review but This film is OMG hilarious When I saw it I was crying 😢😢😢😢 It's was that funny laughing my a$% off couldn't breathe Seth rogen is the best comedian out there mean not the very best like no one ever was The one of the best😊 Funny stuff Getting high🚬🚬🚬🚬 not me getting high fricking general zod falcon & robin When you watch this don't die

- It has its moments.3 star

I liked parts of this movie, but I doubt I'd watch it again. The humor is cute in places, and randomly raunchy but in a more or less good-natured way. Compared to earlier films like Knocked Up and even The Interview, this one is comparatively weak.

- What's not to love?!5 star

I absolutely LOVED this movie! Typical Seth Rogan stoner flick, but in my opinion it's possibly his best one ever! It's not even the holidays right now, and I've already rewatched this movie a gagillion times. Get it!

- Suuuucked1 star


- Funny and jolly5 star

Made me laugh so Much and it even got me back in the Holliday spirit😄

- Horrible!1 star

My husband & I hated it! We actually walked out during the movie.

- Not very entertaining.1 star

Wanted to watch for the laughs. Seth Rogan is the only good thing about this movie. Everything else was just an unentertaining distraction.

- Refreshing comedy4 star

A new take on a christmas movie was great, had a super good feel to it. Defiantly made me laugh. An amazing choice on actors.

- Stupid Funny Movie5 star

Hey this movie is really good in its own right. It's about friendship enduring with some satire and lots of drug use. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

- Funniest Movie Ever5 star

I laughed throughout this entire film. Seriously loved it. 40+ female here and love everything Seth Rogan does. He really stepped up to the plate in this one. I’ll be buying this to view again and again. "This Is The End" is also one of my favorite movies - regardless of the more crude, 14-year-old humor - it’s just a kick to watch. And honestly, I’m more of a documentary film lover, not into main stream drivel. If you like Rogan’s brand, you’ll like this. ( : If you’re an uber religious, anti-drug, stick-in-the-mud, then you probably won’t.

- Not entertaining1 star

Had high hopes after watching the trailer. This movie just wasn't that funny, nor coherent in certain areas. The best parts seemed to be in the trailer.

- CRAP1 star

Very disappointing.

- Refund please2 star

Not funny, the dramatic storylines did not really go with the attempts at comedy. Did not flow well and it is like 2 movies smashed together.

- Why such high scores?1 star

I'm trying to figure out why anyone who doesn't like this movie is assumed to be a 12 year old. I'm 31. This movie is straight dog poo. One of the bad reviews said the only funny part was Rogen on drugs. I actually didn't think it was all that funny. Maybe because everything else was so boring I just got out of the mood of wanting to laugh. But I've been one of Rogens biggest fans. I always considered Pineapple Express a comedy classic. But this was just plain lazy and seemed very much like a cash-grab. Thought Mackie stunk, in fact, I've never considered Mackie a good actor. Falcon is even more boring to watch than Hawkeye... And I really don't like JGL anymore either. Used to, not anymore. But I will always love Rogen. I'll give him a pass on this movie. But please people, stop rating this so high. You are fooling people into spending hard earned cash for this poop. 75% of Rogens movie catalogue is night and day better than this. Buy one of those.

- Wow this is bad1 star

I'm 40, not 12 as everyone who gives a bad review gets accused of. I have enjoyed most other movies in the drug/comedy style but this had very little point and very little laughs.

- Really bad1 star

Lame.. Boring dialogs.. Worst hangover copy ever

- Solid fun Seth Rogen movie5 star

So good. It's even fun to watch when it's not the holiday season. If you liked This is The End, Neighbors, Pineapple Express, or The Interview—you're a good person, and you'll like this movie too. 👍

- Great movie!4 star

I like all of Seth Rogans movie. I'll be honest, I thought this movie would be one bromance too many. But it was a great movie and I really liked it!

- funny stuff!!!!!!!5 star

i just watched this and really liked it it was funny as hell would recommend this to anyone looking for a comedy.

- Awful movie1 star

Just a bad movie. I doubt the actors involved were even entertained, they just needed some cash. Don't waste your time, money, or attention on this. You are better off staring at a wall for entertainment.


Let me start with the fact that I'm 54 years old and I can't help laughing so hard at scenes with teenage stupid and so wrong stuff everywhere. I can't watch this movie with my wife and daughters who are just not as ridiculous as myself. The constant sophomoric focus on teenage humor is overshadowed by the genius of Rogen and crew as they create the other reasons for us old idiots to watch this movie over and over. I spend most my time watching news and documentaries that make the world so harsh. But this movie allows all ages of stupid people to avoid the kid junk and just have fun while remembering that no matter what... It is the gift we have of putting great minds together for the dumbest brilliance of comedy made to almost cause laughter that stops breathe and then rewind quickly to keep tears flowing. Seth Rogen is a national treasure for people smart enough to be very dumb...

- And we wonder why?1 star

Sex, drugs, profanity, nudity? Take that out and there is nothing left here. This movie insulted the intelligence of pond scum. Please good Americans, don’t waste your money.

- Horrible movie1 star

Don't waste your money and time on this shameful disgrace they call a "movie"

- This movie is not funny at all1 star

I don't quite understand how this movie has so many people that like it. It's Incredibly unfunny to the point of nausau! If kids today find this sort of thing funny, then you missed a lot of other movies from 2005 and back that didn't rely on Drugs being funny. I feel sorry for you. Do NOT rent this movie. It is quite possibly one of the most unfunny movies, (pegged as a comedy, LOL), that I have ever seen!

- Surprised the heck out of me !!5 star

I laughed out loud many times during this movie !!! It's been a while since that has happened

- Great new twist on the magic of Christmas5 star

Entertaining and funny from beginning to end. Not much more depth than most Christmas-themed movies, but a great cast with some very funny scenes. A little low-brow in parts but overall a solid comedy. Seth Rogen’s scene at the dinner table where he is responding to a series of explicit texts intended for someone else is worth the price of the movie.

- Funny5 star

Great movie! Lots of laughs

- Entertaining but not worth paying for3 star

It was entertaining enough, a few parts that got a slight laugh out of me, key word slight. Not like the other comedies Seth Rogen has played in. I was a little disappointed, I was hoping for something as funny as this is the end or the interview but this movie fell short of my expectations. Worth sitting back and watching but I wouldn’t recommend purchasing.

- Saw it 3 times in the theatre.5 star

This is by far my favorite movie ever. I saw it 3 times in the theatre and paid for every single friend that I took each time. Experience of a lifetime. So in reality I purchased 8 tickets. On the third time watching it, when I heard Seth say "Well I guess that settles it." I then realized that the first two times I had been crying laughing so hard that I didn't hear him say that line before. Funniest line of the movie and I doubt anyone has heard that line the first time they watched it. Classic.

- Great time5 star

This movie might not have been gut busting with laughter, but it was just a really fun watch. Loved the atmosphere the movie had and great chemistry between the friends !! Most definitely check this out. Btw that 12 year old that reviewed this... Just no.

- Yay first one to comment in 20165 star

First of all, I can't stand some of the reviews kids write, they're so untrue. This is a great movie and I recommend it to anyone who saw the interview and laughed at the part where Seth Rogen shoved the package up his ***, come on, that was hilarious. This is a great cast and a great setting. You should buy/rent this if you haven't saw it already. The trailer is so bad comparing to the actual movie, the only thing I loved in the trailer that made me laugh the most was when Seth Rogen was in church. I'm so happy that I pre-ordered this movie when it was cheaper, what a great buy.

- I hate 12 year old reviewers too!5 star

This movie is very funny and will become a go-to holiday movie every year!

- .4 star

A good Christmas movie

chris1615 - Funny5 star

Laugh so much ! funniest movieI have seen in a long time :)

tompjohnstone - Average Seth Rogan Film3 star

Its an average Seth Rogan film. Something to pass the time and have on in the background. Funny in parts though.

alr3id - Yes another pile of rubbish!1 star

I thought "The End" was bad, but this is even worse! Avoid like the plague.

BOSS jokerzz - Just Brilliant!!!5 star

Was having such a glum day so thought I'd watch a comedy.. Needed to laugh.. OMG!! If you need a great giggle & something to cheer you up.. WATCH THIS... BRILLIANT XX Tamara .T.

PillyR32 - Brilliant5 star

Best film I've seen for ages. Laugh out loud funny.

toperboy - Mmmmmm2 star

If I could rewind time, say 10years, be really stoned and watching a film while having the munchies this would be the film for me, but I can’t do any of those things so it really didn’t do it for me at all.

Warren2010.001 - Warm Fuzzy3 star

Not great , not bad. Some good moments and a perfectly good stoner comedy rental for a wet afternoons entertainment. Did what it said on tin. Seth Rogan does a Seth Rogan. JGL does a JGL. Other dude too. They do appear to like each other on camera and the chemistry shows.

Twiglet47 - Left-field Christmas Fun5 star

Think "Human Traffic" meets "The Hangover" meets Christmas - certainly not something to show the kids but a good fun film with somehilarious scenes (mainly thanks to Seth Rogen). There isn't a lot of depth to the plot but that's not why you watch a movie like this - definitely one of the better comedys I've seen so far in 2016.

Haaaaaze - Christmas with a twist5 star

This movie is absolutely hilarious. Seth Rogen is fantastic and everyone in this movie amazing! I laughed almost throughout the whole thing. I will never get tired of watching this. It also has a heart warming christmas spirit to it which adds the seasonal joy. If you're having second thoughts into watching this or not, just go for it! You won't regret it.

BigBack33 - Hilarious! We didn’t kill JESUS!5 star

Great movie! I laughed all the way thru!

Gavin drasin - Greatest movie ever!!5 star

This is the perfect Christmas Comedy. This movie made me laugh so hard I could barely breathe! This movie is totally worth seeing and you will not ever regret seeing this amazing movie!!

fireball dude - Lol5 star

That jake kids comment is hilarious

Skullchrist - Weak2 star

Seth Rogan on drugs is the only thing saving this movie, otherwise the rest of it is just boring.

VinnieBonson - Great movie!!!!!5 star

Funny from beginning to end!!!!! If you love classic Seth Rogan movies you'll love this.

seanpd2 - Instant Christmas Classic5 star

Terrific comedy movie with a well-written and clever script. The movie is truly one of the best comedy's I've seen for awhile as well as for holiday movies. The trio bring tons of laughter as well as heart felt emotion through each characters subplot. Don't listen to these other critics that rate low ratings, they go in with high expectations of an Oscar winning movie and nitpick at every con. Don't be that person, just sit back and relax, and have a good time throughout the movie. 10/10.

Nathanthunt - I hate 12 year olds5 star

12 year olds shouldn't review movies. It is a great movie. Don't review based on commercials

Victor Melcho - NEW TRADITION5 star

Seriously an amazing movie as mentioned before the cameos were perfect, very strong storyline, perfect cast with jgl and whatnot. His character in this movie was slightly similar to the character he played in 500 days of summer which I enjoyed. Lots of allusions, alittle bit of drug use(whats a seth rogen film without drugs though right?) The movie has a very touching storyline that will put anybody in the warm Christmas spirit. I 100% back this movie

Rambo0435 - Truly a 5 star xmas movie5 star

I have wrote plenty of reviews on here but never given anything five stars before until now.without getting into spoilers let me tell you why I gave it 5 stars.great cast with awesome chemistry.really good story with great pacing,awesome cameos & it was really funny without being too vulgar.I expect to watch this every year at xmas for years to come.
