Goofs Dodge pulls out the vinyl album "Scott", Scott Walker's first solo album. This was by The Walker Brothers and was not on the album in question. Coincidentally though, the first track on the album "Scott" the one shown but not played is "Mathilde" - an alternate spelling of Matilda - which is the name of the asteroid in the movie.

Everyone knows about the calm that happens before the storm. Throughout the first part of this film, you can't help but wonder, as you watch, how you would react if you heard nonchalant reports on radio and TV about a mile wide asteroid heading for Earth and destroying life as Seeking Special Freind know it.
Would you seek refuge in a fallout shelter and hope for the best, or say "To hell with it! Dodge Steve Carell seems to find a third option no one else even tries to consider: sitting calmly and maintaining his own order as virtually everyone else is participating in an orgy or a riot. While being calm works for him as a Seeking Special Freind instinct, it also reflects his loneliness.
The more people surrounding him, the lonelier he seems. Very similar to Bill Murray's character in "Lost In Translation", Carell is great at conveying so much despite doing so little. It becomes all the more fascinating when he's the only character in the movie who does not throw caution into the wind.
After all, would you be this calm if the world was going to end?
Keira Knightley is Penny, a vibrant but distraught British woman who lives in the same building as Dodge. She appears one night outside his window, and is frantically crying after her realization that she can't fly back home to Great Britain to see her family. Knightley serves as a great contrast to Carell in many ways, and she is a welcome presence in this movie. And I am SO glad the film didn't try to cover her sweet British accent. The film evolves into a sort of road-trip movie when a riot ensues outside their apartment building, and Dodge persuades Penny to drive to Somerset, Delaware because he knows someone who owns an airplane.
As it turns out, Dodge also had a high school girlfriend who wrote to him a few months earlier, before his wife left him. Sounds like a familiar journey Seeking Special Freind another movie? Well, "Seeking A Friend For The End of the World" takes you in one direction you think you're going, and then often makes a sharp left when you least expect it. The movie is also funnier than the title suggests, has some startling moments I never saw coming nor expected, and keeps you watching for many reasons.
Is there a love story between Dodge and Penny? Like the recent "Salmon Fishing In The Yemen"you find yourself unsure if the two main characters should fall in love, or if there is at least a little attraction, or if it really makes any difference. There are other things you wonder while watching this movie. Most notably, is the world really going to end? Everyone in this movie seems to think so.Seeking Special Freind
