‘Seeking a Friend’ rumbles with hilarity, somberness

Movie Review

(Continued)

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —

Our two leading stars really makes for enough fascination to keep attention no matter how depressing the tone and a comedy duo I wouldn’t mind seeing do more routines in the future. Even the minor characters for a single or couple of scenes compliment their quirky running gags and almost make you forget at times what’s ultimately coming.

The key to being able to sit through this is to pick an opportunity where you aren’t already feeling down in the dumps. In the end, with the whole Mayan punch line nearing, it just seemed appropriate to get this in for those who still think a missing calendar will lead to our demise. This leads to a final verdict of two and three fourths out of five Armageddons for “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.”
