A pretty depressing love story. But at least they had a happy ending. One can only hope when it's the end of the world.

A bittersweet and eclectic piece, with a healthy balance of dark comedy and romance. Definitely a charming film that addresses many relatable issues in an unconventional and dramatic way. One of the sweetest and most believable romances in a recent film - not overdone, and not tacky.

Although it is kind of slow and long, I really enjoyed this simple study.

I loved it! It was really funny at times, had what people would truly feel and do during their last days on earth.... Ending was touching yet expected.

Not Keira Knightley'e best. Amusing to see different reactions. Bland in substance

Dark, tragic. Very Bittersweet. More tragi-comedy than comedy. You do find yourself laughing at the absurdity. And it will make you look at life differently. Watch it with a full box of tissues.

Great movie, enjoyed the chemistry between them. The downfall is not giving enought scenes between them to build on the relationship sooner than later. Overall great movie. I enjoy the end of the movie bc at the end of the world you just wanna be next to the one you lover when it all goes down.

This movie should not be sold as a comedy, for it is actually the most depressive movie of the year, and the problem lies in fact in its abrupt shifts in tone and a disastrous attempt at being both a cute road movie and a profound love story, leading to an awful ending.

I was so torn at the end of this movie. The entire production was great with amazing dark comedy based around the world ending. Steve Carrell and Kiera Knightley are great throughout the movie and really have engaging characters. However, towards the end **Spoilers** when they end up together, it really kills the vibe. I really enjoyed the idea of them just being friends and facing the end of the world together in the end. The love plot between the two was very off-putting and really knocks a star off of this rating.

A sound movie. I was kind of hoping that it wouldn't finish with the end of the world, but it just ends and that's it.

This is not at ALL what I expected but I absolutely loved it.

a beautifully heartbreaking film featuring excellent acting and an incredibly well written script.

The first 3rd is excellent, and hilarious. If the whole movie had been that funny, it could have been one of the funniest movies ever! But the final two thirds are awful. Boring, and too long. And the shift in tone is pretty jarring. But the whole movie is well acted, and pretty well directed. The writers just need to learn consistency, and to not give up by the end.

The most underrated film of the 10's

Eh - not your typical S.C. flick... falls a little short... not very exciting or entertaining.

The critics are dumb "unfortunately hamstrung by jarring tonal shifts and a disappointing final act." - it's the clever tonal shifts and fantastic and brave, perfect ending that really make this film, plus the tenderness of the relationships, and biting humour. This film deserves to be rated much higher and doesn't deserve poor ratings from people who didn't get it or wanted a happy ending

This film isn't great but the heart-felt moments between Knightley and Carell are grand enough to make you care til the last second.
½ May 3, 2016
3.5/5 The script could use some work but Seeking a Friend packs a heavy emotional punch thanks to the great chemistry between Steve Carell and Keira Knightley.
