Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This is a romantic comedy for people who don't like rom-coms. There's no chance of a happy ending, but its tender mercies speak volumes.
Fresh: "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World," a half-tender portrait of two very lonely hearts in the closing weeks of humanity's run on Earth, is a strange movie.
Rotten: It's too bad the movie chose to go so gentle into that good night.
Rotten: "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World'' has its laughs, but pretty much every single one of them is in the trailer.
A gutsy, entertaining, original film.
Well worth your time, this dramedy is completely unique with some great performances from the two leads. They could have done so much more with this premise - but this minimalist approach is refreshing.
It was sad and funny at the same time. Really makes you think " what would I do with the remaining few weeks " before the end of the earth.. I really like this movie...
In case Keira or Steve take a look at this page - thank you guys for this kind and beautiful movie.
