It is so big that the impact would practically end the world. They try to alert everyone about it but the government and the press make them a laughing stock instead of taking them seriously. 

The movie, no doubt has comic credibility but the subject taken is too dark to jock about. The fact that everyone is just making fun of them instead of taking them seriously is hard to stomach. The President uses them to strengthen her campaign and the press only uses them as a morning show comic news piece. Everyone is so ignorant that the story about a celebrity’s breakup gets more screentime than a world-ending disaster. One can say, the movie tried to make a serious thing comic but certainly, more work was needed to make it convincing enough.  

Another turnoff about the movie is that it does not use its star cast properly. Both Caprio’s and Lawrence’s characters are too helpless and easily ridiculed when one can assume that being astronomers, they should get more respect.

The bottom line is, Don’t Look Up disappoints.
