“Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” is a classic Steve Carell movie. He plays much the same character that he did in “40 Year Old Virgin”. Keira Knightley was her usual cute, messy self. And there are a few well placed cameos in the movie. It’s hard to say that the acting was good or great. Just pretty much what you would expect from the cast because they play character types that they’ve done before.
The movie has it’s moments of humor but few, if any, laugh out loud scenes. The story is good and builds nicely. But there wasn’t anything really compelling about the story or characters that made me care about what happened. Well, that’s not entirely true. I was pretty sad after the movie was over so I must have cared a little.
The premise of the story is really interesting and I think there was a lot of untapped potential there. Overall I was just a bit disappointed. If you’re really interested in seeing the movie I would think that it would make a better home viewing than theater viewing.
