    ★½

    No one, not once, makes or writes a single diary entry in this film. Lies.

    Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

    ★★½

    An interesting but desperately uneven film with a somnambulistic Carrell and an ever so slightly-forced Knightley as a mismatched couple on a road trip that has an apocalyptic destination. This borrows ideas and themes from various sources, including ETERNAL SUNSHINE, but - incredibly - the biggest influence is from a much-loved and devastating 1988 SF cult classic.

    The first half has some dark, tender and funny moments, but the latter stages are more MIRACLE BILE.

    ★★★★★

    This telekinesis sex-comedy is a work of perverse 80s genius.

    There are two utterly nonsensical sequences which are completely out of place amidst the typical frat comedy nonsense.

    One in which a post-'Shining' Scatman Crothers (as a hotdog obsessed janitor; "I WANT MY SALAMI") gets accidentally high and goes bike riding with Albert Einstein and the other where Baio's new found powers enable him to animate a toy spaceship and fly it into his dog's mouth.

    Oh and the ending…
