Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World looks a fantastic film perfect for Carrell’s acting style, when it comes to characters in crisis he is one of the best. Talking of characters this film does show off a potentially great character based story giving plenty of laughs but also some sad moments as well and if you love piss takes of corporates there’s a few in this one especially restaurants.
