End of DatesBy GordonVader (99 reviews) from Emerald City, oz , 21 Nov 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]I'm not one for a rom com, but this one was actually quite sweet... Keira Knightley is annoyingly kooky and is the reason I rated this film with 3. 5 and not 4 stars... She delivers her lines with as much conviction as a parrot. Steve Carrell though however, seems truly like a man staring at oblivion and the film doesn't bottle it when it comes to the story... A touching funny film somewhere between Miracle Mile,the forty year old virgin and Armageddon. Though not a patch on the first one I mentioned on a parr with the second and miles better than the last film I mentioned... They could have made more of the dog though!

worth a watchBy a customer , 18 May 2013Enjoyable film, some great one liners...certainly makes you think about where you want to be at the end! A must for the romantics.
Not so much rom com, just rom!By a customer , 18 May 2013Not sure about the rom com aspect, it didn't actually make me laugh much at all but I really enjoyed the film. A lovely film, thought provoking and touching. Well worth a watch.
Disappointing waste of timeBy a customer , 17 May 2013I really wanted this film to be good. I wanted it to be 'hilarious' just like the blurb says. I like the actors. I like the characters. However, there really is no story. It wasn't funny. At all. And not particularly romantic either. Disappointing.
A very good filmBy a customer , 16 May 2013Steve Carrell and Keira Knightly are both excellent in this fun and touching end of the world romantic road trip.
