STEVE Carrell is known mainly for his comedy - but he plays the morose, downbeat, unlucky-in-love character as well as anybody.
In Seeking a Friend for the End of the World his character, Dodge, is definitley more on the morose side, but the film has elements of humour and is an easy on the eye, if not earth-shatteringly brilliant, piece of film making.
As an asteroid nears Earth, Dodge finds himself alone after his wife leaves in a panic. He decides to take a road trip to reunite with his high school sweetheart. Accompanying him is his neighbour Penny, Keira Knightley, who inadvertently throws a spanner in the works.
