I learnt today that two close friends of mine do not find Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s This Is The End (2013) funny. WHAT?! I know. After coming to terms with their revelation, I made an effort to understand by running through the possible explanations:
- They hadn’t watched or enjoyed Pineapple Express (2008), Superbad (2007) Knocked Up (2007) or other great comedies by Rogen and Goldberg.
- They must not have been in the right frame of mind to properly appreciate the greatness. I believe that you have to be ‘in the mood’ for certain kinds of films (comedy, drama, action, etcetera) to get the best out of them.
- They were too tired to pay due attention.
Apparently none of the above explanations were correct, so I was left with the only possible answer. It’s clear. Something is very wrong with both of them. As such, trying to make sense of the situation would be a royal waste of time. And… I might need new friends.
What do you think? Did you find This Is The End funny? I’d like to think that there’s nothing wrong with you… 🙂
