Seeking a Friend for the End of the World - AMC Loews Village 7
Mike: I was looking forward to this movie, but we had a tough time finding a screening as it disappeared from screens incredibly fast after its dismal opening weekend. Thankfully, the Village 7 tends to hang onto films, allowing them to build an audience, and miraculously they held this one over for a few weeks.
My problem with Seeking a Friend is that it fails to live up to its concept and its title, which make it sound like something really cool. Even the trailer was good, and if you've seen the trailer, you've seen most of the best parts of the movie.
Erica: The trailer was good? You know the trailer was alright, I think good is too strong of a word. This movie, although has a good concept, is so unbelievable as Steve Carrell and Keira Knightley together are probably one of the worst on-screen couples and I felt that there was absolutely no chemistry between these two. I feel like like I was watching a really bad first date....that wouldn't end....Seeking the end credits for this movie would have been a better title....if this is how the world ends....just kill me now cause it is going to suck...
