Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012)

  • Conclusion: Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is devastatingly funny at times, but it's a humor tinged with an overall melancholy, perhaps one reason some critics didn't really cotton to this piece. I personally found it absolutely wonderful for the most part, a near pitch perfect examination of two lost souls realizing they don't have much time to gain equilibrium, for better or worse.

  • Conclusion: 'Seeking a Friend for the End of the World' is a flawed film, make no mistake. There's something seriously missing from the movie, and those seeking a laugh out loud comedy will note that "the funnies" are, for the most part, what is seriously missing. This is a road trip buddy romantic comedy set at the end of the world, and it doesn't quite know how to handle its unique set up.

  • Excerpt: The Film Wow. Someone really messed up on marketing. The commercials for Seeking a Friend for the End of the World -- and really, the movie was such a blip, maybe you missed them -- made this film appear like a lighthearted, romantic comedy. However, when you see a movie about the end of the world, you have to know it's going to be at least a little depressing, right? And it is -- quite a bit, actually.

  • Excerpt: Gently amusing and fitfully affecting, apocalyptic dramedy Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World is a rather chipper way to look at the end of days. With strong leads in Steve Carell and Keira Knightley, Lorene Scafaria�s directorial debut is far from flawless but its optimistic tone is hard not to love, even for the most hardened cynic.

  • Excerpt: The unlikely romantic pairing of Keira Knightley and Steve Carell never starts to feel any more likely in the glaringly inauthentic Seeking A Friend for the End of the World , which uses the end of days as a quirky-cute backdrop for one last-chance romance. There's nothing inherently wrong with the idea-- Don McKellar did wonderful things with it in the tiny, lovely Canadian drama Last Night -- but first-time director Lorene Scafaria never nails down a tone for this...

  • Excerpt: Within the last year, two films—Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia and Abel Ferrara’s 4:44 Last Day On Earth —speculated about the looming apocalypse, but from the fixed perspective of two or three characters with limited access to the outside world. It was a smart approach, because it kept the filmmakers from having to speculate too much on the chaos beyond their borders, because it’s hard to do so without seeming banal and reductive.
