Everything in high school is like the world ending and Sadie Mitchell's crippling fear of the coming apocalypse is the heightened version of that. Undeterred by the naysayers, Sadie has two weeks to ready herself before doomsday. She needs to master survivalist cuisine, learn to sew, but there are other things...personal things: go to a high school party, kiss a boy, and most importantly, get her best friend back.

A Great Coming of Age Comedy
As a comedy this movie most definitely succeed in the comedy genre category. Comedy is one of my favorite genre and all the main actors did well in this movie i have seen worst and this is far from worst that i have seen.
(Morgan Taylor Campbell) plays Sadie Mitchell a teenager who create a list of things she want to do before the world ends in 31 days. Sadie is showing many signs of paranoia with anxiety or fear. I can't fully relate to Sadie but i seen a lot of people who go through anxiety or a state of under pressure fear of dying, losing someone close or enter and leaving high school and other things. I myself always avoid and not worry so much into things like that with Sadie she's prepared and more cautious by surrounding herself with food supplies all kept storage in her bunker.
Everyone look at Sadie as this insane person but one person (Jack Diaz) portray by Ricardo Hoyos Sadie's crush. It just proves everyone have different ways of dealing with their own problems in high school.
Yes Sadie's parents did seem unaware or just didn't bother to care so much about their daughter having these anxiety but that's the comedy side. There were some parts that was funny and some parts for you to know to take serious. This movie is listed as comedy and i enjoyed it just for that reason.
I like how Sadie kept giving out early Christmas present as apart of her anxiety of the world will end.
Sadie's friend Brennan portray by (Clark Backo) want to live her life and not worry so much by getting through high school. Brennan is also the most important person to Sadie on her list.
I felt like Sadie's last day on earth show a side of people like Sadie with anxiety very well. I recommend you give this a watch it's always refreshing to me to see new talent faces like Morgan Taylor Campbell.
