Yes, the tech was laughable. And the ability to deploy it so quickly was equally so. Also, the impact didn't show enough ejecta (though the shock wave radiating outward was probably reasonably close).

But I still enjoyed the movie. When an existential threat is bearing down upon us, are we going to worry about the midterm elections? Which celebrity couple are breaking up? And the "Don't Look Up" mantra from the denialists was spot-on. That is right out of the COVID denialists (claiming it doesn't even exist). I loved the addition of the trucker hat.

It was a commentary about our society more than anything else. Heck, did you see the after-credit scene? The guy using his phone to update some type of social media, while all around him was devastation?

I suspect there would be some denying it until the end; others would demand action; and still others might try to figure out how to profit from it (e.g. I thought the Elon Musk guy was hilarious not wanting to destroy the object because it had $40T worth of rare earth elements).
