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


This may be the longest title I have ever reviewed. Like the actual title not the movie length. The movie is a weird sort of romantic comedy. Steve Carrell plays a guy trying to find the one that got away, his high school sweetheart. keira knightley plays a woman just trying to get home to her family.  And why are they doing this? Well in about three weeks the world is ending because a huge rock from space is going to wipe out all life on Earth.

For once in a rare twist a movie about armageddon handles it in a realistic but fun way. For example early on there is a family and friends party, but weirdly this normally classy and uptight group is now swingers doing heroin teaching small children to chug booze. I mean I get it, the world is ending, have a good time. Another man they run into doesn’t want to go to hell so he hires a hit man, to kill him.

All in all the movie is fun if not a bit odd, but worth a watch. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
