Even with a kind of unique for a romantic-comedy-drama film topic, I' ve become really bored of this "boring-unintresting-but-kind guy meets his manic pixie dream girl" theme. At least here she gets to be a bit more developed as a character.

An average movie

First of all, this movie had a really neat title and I really liked the concept of making a quirky comedy about the end of the world. Unfortunately, it's too bad that the end-result turned out to be rather underwhelming. I mean, I don't blame Steve Carell and Keira Knightley, they did what they could but they were not helped by the fact that they were stuck playing their usual stereotypes, Carell ... read more

The opening scene deserves some kind of special ribbon.... and so does the last.

This is the anti-apocalypse movie....

("(You guys sure have) lots of guns and potato chips." How could I have forgotten that line?)

And it sure beats 'Anna Karenina', Keira. ;)

And the war-in-space movies. *smiles*

It's good to come down to ... read more

“Muy bonita experiencia me lleve al ver esta película, a primera vista pensé que sería una comedia romántica tonta de bajo presupuesto que usaba su concepto nada más para hacer una comedia muy negra y cagarse en el protagonista patético de turno. Pues si bien no diré que es una excelente película y que en parte las cosas van por ahí terminó por efectuar un resultado inverso   Primero que nada la película empieza partiendo de las historias del fin del mundo con la diferencia de que en este caso ya no hay salvación. No lo ejecuta de manera en la que pueda considerarse inteligente o algo por el estilo y utiliza esto nomas para hacer una comedia negra en un inicio. Progresivamente pareciera que va en dirección de esas típicas películas ala "las ventajas de ser invisible" en  ” read more

Unfortunately, it's too bad that the end-result turned out to be rather underwhelming. I mean, I don't blame Steve Carell and Keira Knightley, they did what they could but they were not helped by the fact that they were stuck playing their usual stereotypes, Carell playing another average loser and Knightley playing another quirky alternative girl. To make things worse, both characters were neither really interesting and entertaining and, even though they had nothing in common, you were supposed to believe that they would fall for each other which was really hard to swallow. At first, the focus was set on Carell's character whose life was pretty much already” read more
