Twenty years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on doing it again.

Silly British comedy with some okay performances from Pegg and the others. Would not have been impressed if I had to spend money on seeing it.

Well-acted but pointless.

Can't stand Simon Pegg's brand of humour. Whatever talent he may have is totally wasted here.

Very enjoyable and witty lines. Full of rudeness, farting, and bathroom humour I love so much. Thank goodness the library is not censored by the opinions of the majority or this gem may not have made it for inclusion in the library system.

Simon Pegg’s enormously unfunny alien invasion comedy, an idiotic blend of Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Animal House, relies far too much on beer-soaked pratfalls and CGI mayhem instead of genuine wit. What humour there is consists mainly of guys getting progressively pissed and yelling a lot while the E.T. encounters are a pretty standard mix of kung fu moves and comically detached robot limbs. And Simon Pegg’s manic alcoholic loser is extremely annoying. A mid-life crisis flick that actually makes you glad you’re a grown-up.

Those who think that adolescent rudeness, farting, and bathroom humour are entertaining may enjoy this movie.
I can't imagine any adult watching it on purpose.
This production is unfit for inclusion in the library system.

The pod people take over pubs. Some moments are funny, some aspects are sweet, but there is a fair amount that is just crude.

This film is by far the greatest effort Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's have achieved thus far. I have always been a huge fan of these two, being one of those rare and more than perfect pairings.

I will not spoil this film by giving away key points or plot details, but I will simply state that this film is completely and fully worth repeated watches. Like at least once a month for 4 years. Yes, this film is in my opinion that entertaining.

Also, judging by the complete hate and utter contempt for this film, I would simply like to add that anyone with a fourth of a brain would find this entertaining. Sorry guys, maybe the film wasn't boring, it could just be you?

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.
