WRITER: Lorene Scafaria

PLOT: A 70-mile-wide asteroid is en route to Earth, and the last best attempt to counter it has failed. Also failing is the marriage of soft-spoken insurance salesman Dodge. Dodge is a man who has always played by the rules of life, while his neighbour Penny is an extroverted woman who hasn’t. When a riot breaks out around their apartment building, Dodge realises that he must seek his wife out before it’s too late while Penny makes the decision to spend her last days with family in England. On the road together, the unlikely traveling companions’ respective personal journeys accelerate, and their outlooks – if not the world’s – brighten.

    Nice review, I certainly agree about this one. I didn’t expect that much from it but I really enjoyed it. Great performance from Carrell as usual and I really liked Knightley as well, which I don’t always 🙂

What do you think?
