Replete with some funny cameos by the likes of Rob Corddry and Patton Oswalt, it nonetheless ends up casting its eye over the least interesting characters onscreen.

Is it a love story, a black comedy or what? It is a little bit of everything until the very end when the movie finally pays off.
June 27, 2012
...a romcom without the com, and not a lot of rom.

Here's the silver lining in the dark cloud of mankind's doom: Even a mopey insurance salesman in a Rick Santorum sweater vest can find true love with a sexy young free spirit with a hip vinyl record collection.

"Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" is at best a guilty pleasure thanks to Keira Knightly's presence. At worst, it's a movie that bides its audience's time on the way to certain death.

Dodge and Penny are too busy being quirky indie creations instead of human beings, too adrift in their own world to connect in any meaningful way with ours.

Even if there weren't really only 21 days left until the world goes kablooey, you wouldn't want to waste your precious time watching this.

Feeble and cloying from midway to its final throes, it begins with a bang but - inappropriately for the scenario - goes out with a whimper.
June 25, 2012
Often, the film seems to tiptoe up to something potentially scary or disturbing and then backs away fast.

The concept is stronger than the execution in this bittersweet story of lost souls finding comfort in one another in dire circumstances.

[A]musing flashes of imagination. . . . turn into a conventional road movie, with usual. . . quirky characters. . . Carell and Knightley [not] a convincing romantic couple.
June 23, 2012
A formulaic, predictable romantic comedy with an apocalyptic twist.
June 23, 2012
Stale but safe apocalyptic romcom.
June 22, 2012
A mopey, indie effort featuring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley as the mismatched Romeo and Juliet of the Apocalypse...
June 22, 2012
Loved the first 20 minutes or so. What starts out as an engaging comedy-drama lurches into a clunky road movie-wimpy love story.
June 22, 2012
By the end, I was just seeking an honest emotion.
June 22, 2012
It's a sign of just how deeply annoying the movie is that you long for this planet-destroying space rock to arrive in half the time so that everyone onscreen will die sooner.
June 22, 2012
The film doesn't go far enough in exploring the unique setting, playing things safe when they should be outrageous.
June 22, 2012
The problem with this nice-try comedy is the nice-guy protagonist.
June 22, 2012
It can be quite funny when they encounter crazies, but the earnest parts are a killer, and may elicit more groans than laughs overall.
