Okay i'd just like to say that i made an account just to write this review so not everyone has to suffer like i did. bottom line, don't watch this movie. now i can get past the face that it was COMPLETELY unrealistic due to the fact that they were still able to purchase gas and other every day items DURING THE APOCALYPSE. That i can possibly live with. But what i can't get over is the complete lack of character development and this also COULD have been overlooked if the two main characters didn't fall in love. and i'm thinking if i didn't know anything about the characters, how the hell did they know anthing about each other!? especially since they just DECIDED they were the love of each other's lives in what?? a week? less? I honestly don't know because within the hour and 40 minutes of my life that i wasted, they failed to be consistent with a timeline that would allow me to figure that out. People are writing reviews about how "deep and touching" this movie was? maybe they watched a different movie than me because i no way was i moved by this movie. maybe i moved a little closer to the bathroom because of how repulsed i was by the attempt of comedy within the movie. but not emotionally. I bursted out laughing at the end, so predictable and so stupid. i can't emphasize it enough. do not watch this movie.

A really charming film. A film written for adults.

This is a really outstanding film. Steve Carell's is Dodge, as he attempts to cope with the impending apocalypse by embarking on a road trip with an off-kilter neighbor (Keira Knightley's Penny). The director Scafaria has infused the early part of Seeking a Friend for the End of the World with a comically (yet appropriately downbeat) vibe that's reflected in Dodge's encounters with various supporting characters (Rob Corddry's hedonistic Warren, Melanie Lynskey's sweet yet simpleminded Karen, etc), with the meandering atmosphere affording the early part of the proceedings the feel of a low-key character study.

A rather funny part of the film is when Dodge and Penny stumble into a restaurant populated by drugged-out waiters and patrons, encounter a house full of survivalists, are arrested by an unreasonably rigid police officer, etc, etc. Some is good, some is just OK. There reaches a very specific point, however, at which Seeking a Friend for the End of the World finally morphs into the affecting drama promised by the setup, and the movie subsequently becomes more and more engrossing in the build-up to its emotionally-wrenching finale - with the irresistibly romantic bent of Dodge and Penny's relationship ensuring that the film, in the end, makes a far more pronounced impact on the viewer than one might have reasonably expected.

I must admit I am a fan of both Carell and Knightly. Both bring a great deal of earnest sincerity, and talent to their performances, as well as humor and sensitivity. They carry the film.

Natalie Portman's Australian accent is horrible!

Boy meets girl. They fall for each other... the end. Sometimes it's on a sinking ship. Sometimes it's while they're looking for treasure. Sometimes it's while people are trying to kill them. Sometimes it's just for the hell of it. This time, it happens when the world is coming to an end and there is only 3 weeks to live. Sometimes one dies, sometimes they both die, sometimes no one dies. Sure the occasional romance story can be entertaining, but does ever frickin story by default have to be centered around a romance? Will we ever be able to sink a ship, end the world, or anything we can name that won't be centered around a love story? I'm counting down to the day when that happens. Sure, hooking up with another person or finding the one is fun, but there's deeper meaning to the human experience.... isn't there?

I'm glad that they didn't name this - Leon the Professional Part 2... In 15 Years It Won't Matter Anyways. Obviously they couldn't bring Leon back, but it was nice to see how Matilda ended up.

Little spoilers below Random thoughts; I got a kick out of the meat head still going to the gym, however an entire restaurant staff still going to work with a less than a week to live... pretty lame.
