Tampa Bay Times
It's more amusing than you might expect, and ultimately more touching than an eroding society around them deserves.
80
Boxoffice Magazine
A charmingly lo-fi love story.
75
Not mainstream fare, but neither is it as willfully obtuse as "Melancholia."
75
Intelligent, dignified and emotionally satisfying.
70
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."
67
It pitches a tone between comedy and tragedy that holds unique appeal.
40
Variety
The end of the world can't come fast enough in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, a disastrously dull take on the disaster-movie formula.
40
The casting is spectacularly wrong, and even on its own scant merits, writer-director Lorene Scafaria's screenplay has little insight into apocalyptic licentiousness, barring a tart line or two.
40
Village Voice
By turns bizarrely affectless and then prattlingly manic, much like its dual protagonists.
38
Slant Magazine
A predictable, drawn-out romantic comedy that happens to be set in the shadow of impending apocalypse.
