“My perfect date night: I pick you up. In my Kia Sorrento. You get in. There’s candles in the car. You go, ‘…Is that dangerous?’ and I go, ‘Yes—but I like danger.’ We go to your favorite restaurant, and we have a fantastic meal. We come outside and we see my car’s on fire. You go, ‘Aziz, your car’s on fire. Aren’t you upset?’ I pull out a bag of marshmallows and I go, ‘No. I knew this was gonna happen.’ And then I kiss you. In front of my burning car.”
Co-written and co-directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the film co-stars Paul Rudd, James Franco, Emma Watson, Aziz Ansari, Jason Segel, Rihanna, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Danny McBride and Jay Baruchel all playing themselves (or thinly veiled versions of themselves) who have to forgo their celebrity status when imminent doom looms large over the earth.
