Storyline Heading
A 70-mile-wide asteroid is en route to Earth, and the last best attempt to counter it has failed. Also failing is the marriage of soft-spoken insurance salesman Dodge; the breaking news that the world will end in an estimated 21 days cues his wife to leave him on the spot.
DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama Romantic - While this film does have its share of comedic moments that verge on the silly side (as seen in the trailer), gradually this film becomes more serious, befitting the end of the world premise--so fans of Steve Carell's more broadly comic work should temper expectations. Fans of Carell and Keira Knightley should enjoy this unexpected pairing. Other known stars such as Derek Luke have much smaller roles. Language, drug use, and adult subject matter make the film inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Seeking a Friend wants to say something about the human need to connect, and it does so in a convincing and satisfying way.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The best parts of this sweet film involve the middle stretches, when time, however limited, reaches ahead, and the characters do what they can to prevail in the face of calamity.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good It's the warmly intimate moments, the bittersweet wonder at the beauty of the world and the value of family and forgiveness that leave the deepest imprint.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 24 moviegoers:
OUCH! These are VERY MEDIOCRE REVIEWS! No age or gender group enjoyed it very much. This is another movie that the critics enjoyed but moviegoers didn't care much for. It's incredible that critics gave this movie Good and even a Very Good review. It's rare for them to rate any movie that high. We weren't able to collect very many reviews, but they clearly show that the average moviegoer is going to be disappointed with this movie. However, if your taste in movies usually jives with the critics then you'll certainly want to see "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Dodge (Golden Globe Award winner Steve Carell) is a man who has always played by the rules of life, while his neighbor Penny (Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley) is an extroverted woman who hasn't. From these opposite perspectives, both initially choose to navigate the impending end of the world with blinders on. Dodge declines joining his friends in increasingly reckless behavior, while Penny fixates on her relationship issues with a self-absorbed musician. The two misfits meet first when Penny has a rough night and then again when she belatedly delivers Dodge a lost letter. That letter could alter Dodge's future; it's from his high-school sweetheart Olivia, the love of his life. When a riot breaks out around their apartment building, Dodge realizes that he must seek Olivia out before it's too late while Penny makes the decision to spend her last days with family in England. Seizing the moment, Dodge promises to help Penny reach her family if she will provide transport for the two of them in her car immediately. She agrees, and they escape.

On the road together, the unlikely traveling companions' respective personal journeys accelerate, and their outlooks - if not the world's - brighten.
