Seeking a good movie, check the next door.

Comedy drama genre is a genre I never really took a likening to, but the main problem for me about this flick is the name, when a movie name is hard to remember i just rate it as one movie i know i will forget all that happened in it in a few months.

Written by Lorene Scafaria who wanted to "tell the story of boy meets girl with a really ticking clock", decided to put together a tale about the end of the world and how people will react to the news.

Imagine if you knew the world will end in 21 days what will you do?

Well in this movie violence erupted everywhere, people having random sex, orgies, drugs and prices of stuff were unbelievable.

It was a total chaos, but in this chaos is the tale of two strangers who live in the same apartment building, Dodge (Steve Carell) and Penny (Keira Knightley) the thing the two have in common was they both needed to get somewhere, Dodge wanting to see his former high school sweet heart and Penny wanting to get to England to see her parents.

The two venture of on a journey that saw them get involved in a suicide/homicide where a truck driver pays someone to murder him, they also get to meet Penny’s ex boyfriend who was prepared for the apocalypse.

Their journey led them to meet Dodge’s father and in the end the world was destroyed with the two falling in love.

It may sound like a healthy romantic story, but the thing is the things that happened in between the point A when they met and point B when they fell in love were just too stupid to matter.

I too will like to be saddled with a lady when the world wants to end, but i think that will not be what i will do, i will rather be with a loved one, not a stranger i fell for during the course of waiting for the end to come

The movie seemed too long, but that wasn’t because of the time but because after a while i was bored of watching the two characters get in and out of trouble.

Steve Carell is a good comedian but after the laughs of Get Smart and Date Night he seemed to have lost me. Never was much of a fan of Keira and i still stand on that ground.

Have some spear time? Why not try watching some oldies instead.
