‘This Is the End’

Hollywood celebrities try to survive the end of the world. Seth Rogen stars. What makes this movie work is the take-no-prisoners script by Rogen and Evan Goldberg. No one’s career or public persona is safe from comic attack. Rogen even talks about his past film failures, particularly “The Green Hornet.”

‘The Croods’

If this is an example of what’s supposed to be prehistoric comedy, then the genre should be allowed to become extinct. There’s the potential for humor, but it never develops beyond a few sight gags that will entertain the preschool crowd.

Also available this week

“The Little Mermaid”: The animated tale of a mermaid who longs to leave the water is being released for the first time on Blu-ray.

“The Wizard of Oz”: Remastered version of the film is being released to mark the 75th anniversary.
