Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reteam with director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) in this wildly entertaining thrill ride that critics call “funny as hell” (Richard Roeper, WLS-AM Chicago) and “sheer comic perfection” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). Twenty years after their first epic pub crawl attempt, the “five musketeers” reunite in their home town to complete the ultimate challenge – one night, five friends, twelve bars – a boozy quest on which only the strongest will survive. But after a bizarre series of encounters with the out-of-this-world locals, they soon realize that reaching their final pub, The World’s End, may be the least of their troubles. They’re having the time of their lives, ready to take on the world…but tonight they may have to save it.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The World's End is an offbeat hybrid that starts out like a buddy comedy and ends up being a whole other kettle of fish. Like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, which were made by the same director and stars, it's irreverent and unpredictable, which makes it truly enjoyable, but its edgy content means it's definitely best for older teens and up. Expect loads of drinking -- the movie is, after all, about an epic pub crawl gone very awry -- and scenes of violence (though they're cartoonish and played for laughs at times) with limbs coming off, explosions, outright melees, and the like. There's lots of swearing, including "f--k," "s--t," and much more.
