    It'll knock you on you ass from laughing when you're not rubbing your eyes in disbelief. show more

    The result is an original picture, not entirely successful, but successful enough, and delightful in its ability to surprise viewers, and juggle tones and keep every ball in the air. The World's End has the aura - and this might only be an attractive illusion - of something imagined whole, in a burst of inspiration, rather than as something labored over. show more

    The premise of visiting so many pubs as a narrative device, however, bogs down the initially energetic pacing and goofiness. Piling on the mayhem renders The World's End a sometimes chaotic and uneven comedy. show more

    If you\'re too stupid to understand British humor, then don\'******* this. You wont be able to keep up with their quick words. For comedies today, its extremely difficult for it to get anything above 3 stars. That\'s because all the humor is meant for retards to understand.. I loved the concept & style

    Not funny. Didn\'t laugh once and didn\'t hear any laughter coming from the other half dozen people in the theater. Not funny. One more time...not funny. I have no idea what the critics saw, but then again they also loved Blue Jasmine. And I have to say, as a staunch WA fan, it sucked.
