The Importance of Getting Sh*tfaced. While not a perfect -- more could have been done to link the wryly melancholy first half to the action packed second half, and the ending needs a re-think -- this is fine comedy, starring five actors at the top of their game. As usual, the blogosphere will call it Edgar Wright's Worst Film Ever (see below for representative reactions), until he makes another film, whereupon The World's End will be called good to great, and the next film will be called his Worst Film Ever. Will Wright's reputation EVER catch up to his films? The writer/director commentary track will aid the puzzled.

A funny men's movie about a pub crawl gone crazy, I liked it, but not for all. Silly English humor.

After seeing the trailer and reviews, I thought this would be a fun, mindless comedy. You would think, given the setup, that this film would be about drinking. And/or, about dealing in some way with lost and remembered youth. Nope: it's about robots. It makes little sense and conveys no feeling of joy. Don't waste your time.

worst movie i ever saw, boring

Die or not, not in-between.

I remember when British humour used to be funny. This is the worst of the worst of the very, very worst. Simon Pegg plays the same old idiot jerk and his friends are fools for going with him. Who needs to watch that? Utterly un-funny and a total waste of time. Turned it off a third of the way through.

There are a few funny moments but not enough to recommend this movie.

Awful - don't waste your time. I don't understand why FVRL would buy a movie like this.

Not bad, not good, just okay. Too many movies like this are being made and they all seem very similar after a while.
