Toggle navigation Menu. Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Posted by Tim Brayton Posted on Jun - 27 - 7. It ended when I lost your love. The biggest problem with Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is how fantastically misrepresented it's been in marketing: it came in looking like a snarky black comedy about the end of the world, and it is not that, to a startling degree. Instead, it is a delicately romantic character drama about the end of the world, in which some comedy finds its way almost as it were by accident And while this thus leaves us without a really sharp black comedy about the apocalypse, something that would be very nice to have at some point, the movie that Seeking a Friend is, is almost as welcome as the film that it isn't.

Having a rough time fitting in, Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen, manager of the Water Wizz water park. Three magazine employees head out on an assignment to interview a guy who placed a classified advertisement seeking a companion for time travel. The lives of three friends, from their early school days into young adulthood, when the reality of the world they live in comes knocking.

Written by Douglas Young the-movie-guy. Watching an American picture about the end of the world and finding that there is no concentration on things blowing up and exploding came as a welcome relief if not a surprise. This film is a little gem of a black comedy with some drama and romanticism thrown in.

I only recognised two or three faces - but everyone of the players is good and the two leads are superb. The male lead is of a character not usually associated with the romantic and this brings out more of the warmth. Quirky, offbeat, lovable, zany and intelligent are some of the words I would use to describe this entertainment - and entertain it certainly does. If this picture comes this way - grab it, you will love it.

Edit Storyline An asteroid named "Matilda" is on a collision course towards Earth and in three weeks the world will come to an absolute end. Edit Did You Know? Trivia The story of an "unexpected romance blossoming between two strangers while on an impromptu road trip" is familiar territory for Director Lorene Scafaria, as that was the premise of her previous screenplay, "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist".

Goofs Dodge pulls out the vinyl album "Scott", Scott Walker's first solo album. This was by The Walker Brothers and was not on the album in question. Coincidentally though, the first track on the album "Scott" the one shown but not played is "Mathilde" - an alternate spelling of Matilda - which is the name of the asteroid in the movie.

Quotes [ first lines ] Radio Announcer : OK, what we're getting now is - yes, they're saying it was in fact a fire that erupted inside the external tank of the ship, exactly ninety-eight seconds after it entered the asteroid field. No one is sure what caused the fire which led to the massive explosion, killing all twelve crew members and scientists aboard the space shuttle Deliverance, taking with them our last and only hope.

Once again, if you're just tuning in, the CSA space shuttle Deliverance has been destroyed. Was this review helpful to you?

What do you do for a third act?

If he were told the world were ending tomorrow, Martin Luther once said, he would plant a tree. Werner Herzog would start a film. In "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World," Steve Carell plays an insurance salesman but finds little point in selling a whole-life policy. An asteroid 70 miles wide is on a collision path with Earth, and governments have announced it will slam into its target in three weeks' time. To me, even worse than this catastrophe would be foreknowledge of it. To die is one thing. How much worse to know that all the life that ever existed on this planet, and all it ever achieved, was to be obliterated? Dodge Carell looks a little gloomy at the best of times.

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World – review

Hyperbole can be fun. Had the critic wanted to be more precise, he probably would have said something along the lines of: the novelist was the worst writer of his generation who was in theory talented enough to be one of the better or even best writers of his generation, but had fallen short. Or, maybe, the novelist was the worst writer of his generation who was successful enough that labeling him the worst writer of his generation would generate some noise at book parties. Which it did. Were you aware that the art direction in John Carter was brilliant?
