While Stevenson's film unwinds along familiar lines, it delivers unexpected charm and low-key vibrancy.

a strange but quite funny indie flick.

Keep on dancin' till we die! I wonder if Stevenson has ever read Murakami's novel "Dance, Dance, Dance"?

I loved this movie! It was very funny, and I loved the characters. It was also fun to see all sorts of Seattle places in this film. I highly recommend it.

despite the low budget this movie is excellent.

I liked this film, but I wouldn't call it it a dark comedy - its a romantic comedy that gets a little preachy. It is also obvious that the filmmaker loves Seattle and wanted feature every little tidbit he could. Aside from the beginning and the ending, the movie isn't bad. It did make me laugh some, so I guess it did its job.

A tribute to what can be done with sincere, honest directing and a good cast on a low budget. Are most "famous" actors really any more engaging than the stars of this nicely paced quirky comedy?? Deceptively simple, it is loaded with touches of directorial and acting genius. Throwing money at this film and/or producing it in Holly wood, couldn't make it any better.

An amazing film about living your life to the fullest, Expiration date is a fairly dark romantic comedy that entertains though out. Robert A. Guthrie (Charlie) and Sascha Knopf (Bessie) give great performances with relatable and interesting characters.

While it's not a complex story (boy learns he'll die, boy meets girl, boy's feeling are in chaos), it's has enough interesting twists to keep the audience wondering what's coming.

Littered with red herrings, and foreshadowing, it keeps the audience guessing till the end.

The one fault could be that the plot pacing is uneven a bit during the end of the first Act going into the second, but the characters make up for it in their intrigue.

I just really really enjoyed this movie a lot. Charlie's shy, understated nature was perfect for the character and a good compliment to the bubbly yet insecure Bessie. Also utilizes the scenery of Seattle in a beautiful way.

Promising and hilarious beginning, but too many forced quirks per minute. It was more endearing during the few dramatic moments. Thankfully, use of Seattle streets was just halfway touristy (John Wayne's McQ has done this best so far).

This is bar-none my favorite movie. It has the right balance of comedy and intensity and really speaks to the Seattle soul. The cast of relatively unknown actors brings the excellent writing to life, and asks all of us if we simply want to finish the list or if we want to die dancing.

Interesting and sort of fun plot line and possibilities. The characters just don't bring enough life to their parts to make it more convincing however. Doesn't warrant the comparison to Harold and Maude that some reviewer gave it.

I liked the concept and the main character, but some of the other acting I thought was kinda so-so.

This is a very fun movie- especially for those who live in the Seattle area. About a man cursed to die on his 25th b-day by a milk truck, it follows his life until the very dooms day. Very funny and cute. And you will fall in love with "Roadkill"!
