Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

(R) ★★★☆☆

An asteroid is on course to crash into the earth. In this dramedy, Dodge (Steve Carell) keeps going through his insurance salesman paces. But the world around him goes crazy. Some kill themselves, some dive into orgies. Dodge decides to find the high school sweetheart who got away. Joining him on his road trip is Penny (Keira Knightley). The two grow closer along the way, and while many of the notes struck ring true, a lot of it feels a little too engineered, and not lived.
