By the time September arrives, This is the End will probably be in the running for "funniest comedy of the 2013 summer." The end-of-the-world comedy packs more humor into its 107 minutes than many other contenders (Hangover III and The Internship, for example) manage in roughly equal time allotments. When This is the End provokes laughter, it's frequently hysterical. Admittedly, between some of the explosions of hilarity, there are periods when the movie coasts on its by-the-numbers disaster scenario. Overall, however, it's funnier and more energetic than a lot of what's out there in a movie season most would qualify as disappointing.
