#60Movies – Day 5: Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

7 01 2013

What would you do if you knew the world was going to end?

Synopsis: Seeking a Friend is about what happens when an asteroid threatens to hit earth in 21 days and the entire planet goes into a state of despair. Steve Carrell plays Dodge, an insurance salesman living a mundane life who decides to take a road trip seek out his highschool sweetheart after discovering that his wife has cheated on him. But he’s in for a surprise when his neighbor joins the trip, and he learns to enjoy the moment while he can.

My Takeaway: This was an interesting film about seizing the moment and living life to the fullest while we can. We tend to not appreciate the blessings that are around us until they are on the verge of being taken away. We should enjoy life, and enjoy it to the fullest. We should cherish the people around us, because sometimes they are the most overlooked blessings of all. I love Steve Carrell, but the movie moves kind of slow at times. I couldn’t really get into Keira Knightley’s character but overall it was a good flick. I give it 3 1/2 stars.
