After his bold young neighbor, Penny (Keira Knightley), belatedly delivers a letter from Dodge's former sweetheart, Dodge decides that he must find the love of his life before it's too late.

  • I never rooted for them as a couple, never felt a chemistry in their bond. And in a romance, even one with tragic notes, that really is the end of the world. show more

  • Scafaria's movie never catches fire. The bad news: The end of the world comes with a whimper. Worse: And two wimps. show more

  • With its sharp script and bittersweet humor, the audacious premise feels fresh enough to earn a large word-of-mouth audience among moviegoers who would normally avoid a more conventional rom-com, potentially becoming a left-field breakout hit in the mode of "Juno" or "Little Miss Sunshine." show more

    Interesting love story wrapped around an end-of-the-world theme. I think the biggest problem people will have with this is going into it thinking it is a comedy (because of Carell\'s presence). Go in with an open mind.

    I really liked this movie! Carell was amazing. Knightley gave, I believe one of her best. I was suprised. Well thought out and written. The study of characters and situations is really good. Bittersweet story line. Highly recommend.
