Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 06/29/2012
"Written and directed with blithe chutzpah and good instincts....Scafaria circumvents expectations at every turn..." -- Grade: B+
Chicago Sun-Times - 06/20/2012
3 stars out of 4 -- "The best parts of this sweet film involve the middle stretches, when time, however limited, reaches ahead, and the characters do what they can to prevail in the face of calamity."
Box Office - 06/19/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]ere writer and director Lorene Scafaria uses our doom as simply the backdrop for a charmingly lo-fi love story....A surprisingly bold and assured first feature."
USA Today - 06/22/2012
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It's the warmly intimate moments, the bittersweet wonder at the beauty of the world and the value of family and forgiveness that leave the deepest imprint."
Total Film - 08/01/2012
3 stars out of 5 -- "Carell fits the hangdog-hero mould perfectly....It's handled sensitively: you should expect to shed a few tears by the time the countdown hits zero..."
A.V. Club - 06/21/2012
"[T]here's real wisdom and honesty to the way this improvised friendship plays out, as both characters struggle to leave this mortal coil with some perspective and dignity." -- Grade: B-
Sight and Sound - 08/01/2012
"[I]t's a high-concept romantic comedy with deceptively indie trappings. It wraps its intriguing premise in neatly offbeat comedy..."
