QUICK TAKE:
Black Comedy: Two astronomers try to warn an indifferent country about a planet killer comet that's headed directly toward Earth.
PLOT:

Astronomy grad student Kate Dibiasky (JENNIFER LAWRENCE) and her Michigan state professor Dr. Randall Mindy (LEONARDO DICAPRIO) have made a troubling discovery -- a comet about ten kilometers in size that's on a collision course with Earth. Their finding is confirmed by Dr. Teddy Oglethorpe (ROB MORGAN) from the Planetary Defense Coordination Office, and all three head to the White House to alert them to the planet killer that will arrive in six months. But President Orlean (MERYL STREEP) blows them off, as does her entitled son Jason (JONAH HILL) who serves as her chief of staff.

Realizing they need to warn others, they try to do so on a TV talk show, The Daily Rip, but the upbeat hosts, Brie Evantee (CATE BLANCHETT) and Jack Bremmer (TYLER PERRY), similarly don't take the warnings seriously, although Brie finds herself attracted to the married professor. President Orlean and big-tech founder and CEO Peter Isherwell (MARK RYLANCE) eventually take things seriously and come up with a plan to send patriot Benedict Drask (RON PERLMAN) into space to blow up the comet, but even that gets called off with a new discovery. With things looking bleak, Randall and Kate do what they can to continue warning others, all while she finds solace in the arms of young skateboarder Yule (TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET).

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
