"Seeking a Friend for the End of the World," written by "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" screenwriter Lorene Scafaria," stars Steve Carell and Keira Knightley in a plot that answers the question, "What would you do if you only had three weeks left to live?" There's the expected crying, the expected rioting, the expected laughs from Patton Oswalt. But can the movie really pull off such disparate tones? Also, if someone understands why the top-rated YouTube comments on this video is just the word, "Bagel," please shoot me an email.
