Worldviews matter.

People who don't like this movie might be some of the Don't-look-up people.

What a great and brave movie. A new Truman Show in the 2020's.
Beautiful ending (including the one after the credits, which most people missed).
A "John the Baptist" message style, which will be still rejected and ignored by many.

Although, I found quite paradoxical that Netflix - a company making business out of pleasing others, with some brainless entertainment, and creating narratives to push certain worldviews in the society to distract mass audiences from the reality (a.k.a. brain-washing), manipulating our spending patterns into their own benefit -, it is now making a movie that exactly satirizes this same 'business' strategy.

It's unfortunate the people that should watch this won't, and even if they did, they wouldn't understand, which the comments here prove.

Clearly the film highlights just how stupid people like pro-diseasers are when face with concrete scientific proof, they literally just stare at their feet (don't look up). I wonder if any of them are going to understand that this film is 2 and a half hours of being laughed at.

Overall the movie is ok, could have done with at least 30 minutes being cut.

Was expecting a drama. Found the best comedy I watched in years!

First time in a long while that I watched a film in total disbelief.

Enjoyable in a comedic sense. Frustrating in a realistic sense. Torgo summed it up perfectly.

The only thing I would critique is the ending. It was beautiful right up until spoiler

I find some of the comments here to be quite baffling.
In response to some of them:
1. The film only focuses on two characters, but mainly on one. If you're having difficulty with following 1-2 characters then I'm not sure that the film is to blame.
2. There is a plot. It's there from the very beginning and plods steadily along throughout the entire film.
3. It's strange to label this as a misanthropic film when it also went out of it's way to show the side of humanity worth saving. It was pretty clear in that area.
4. If you dislike 90% of the characters despite them being varied, then that's not the problem of the film.
5. If you sided with the scientists and were yelling at the screen wanting the officials and public to just DO SOMETHING, then congrats, you got the point of the film.
6. It's not about COVID. You missed the point of the film entirely.

Is this the movie where Bob Dylan gets stabbed by a midget?

Really good satire. If a comet ever does come for us, we are fucked.

Mark Cherry yelling "It's a satire!" from his home is a better satire than this dreck of a film.

Messy but fun.

My friends and I had a good discussion about whether or not the dialogue was realistic, or completely overblown. As a satire, it's incredibly on the nose, but grapples with some big issues in a pretty fun way. Well worth a watch, and much better than other similar films like the Laundromat.

I didn't enjoy Vice at all and I'm not the biggest fan of The Big Short-- but this was much better than expected. Saw it with an audience and people were loving it. Critics were complaining about it being tonally inconsistent, but it's funny all the way through. Didn't find it cloying or too preachy. I find it less smug than McKay's previous two movies precisely because it is a fantasy and not real events told with the benefit of hindsight. I guess you could complain about it being a masochistic daydream about wanting to say "I told you so" so much that you're willing to die... but if it works it works. I liked it.
