Gimmicky love story that's not saved by its bittersweet ending. Acting is more than just cooing with your eyes. It seemed like 500 days allright. Paul Chambers, CNN.
Oh, grow up. There was excellent acting in this film, and the gimmicks are what made it great. Are you kidding me? The ending made it.Go watch Dear John or something.

I have to ask, how does it feel to be in the minority of critics who didn't like this film Paul? Do you think to yourself, hmmm, maybe I got this one wrong? Or maybe I should give up my day job! Adz

Does it make you a sheep to like a movie simply because its well written and brilliant despite the fact that the vast majority of intelligent movie critics agree as well? Or does it make you a fucking poser for trying to be the child of the inbred indie rock nation that's currently sweeping the underground you FAG SHEEP. Nice profile picture too, keep up with the goth act and you could probably snag Edward Cullen like you always dreamed.

A night job? What the hell are you talking about? Obviously, this movie is a good movie considering it has over 100 positive reviews and only 25 rotten. I personally despise chick flicks of any kind, but I found myself enjoying this movie.P.S. Learn when to capitalize and when to not. Do you need to go back to Kindergarten?

Maybe you're the "gimmicky" one.

Gimmicky review that's not saved by its use of the word "cooing". Writing reviews is more than just talking out your ass. Surely it seems that the 500 (exaggeration) critics who disagree with you can't be... "all right"...can they? Brady M., CNN.

Many of you are calling him an asshole/douchebag/jerk because he doesn't share YOUR opinions on the film, but what does that make YOU? He knows his opinion is an opinion and not a fact. However, several of you seem to think YOUR opinions ARE fact, and are very quick to judge and defend your "fact" in a pretty aggressive manner. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what's called hypocrisy.
Since I know someone will bring it up, I'll just mention it first -- I'm not defending his review nor agreeing with it, just critiquing the comment trends on this site from those who are (often angrily) in disagreement.

Not going to insult someone for not liking a movie, however i'd like to comment that you definitely missed the point if you thought it was a gimmicky love story; 500 days strives to portray the story of a real relationship, ups and downs and ultimately acceptance and moving on. Also, I'm not sure what movie you were watching but the acting was fantastic, and i don't mean Zooey, Levitt was great and overall the movie describes a harsh reality that not all relationships end the way we want with the twist of a looking at the end as a beginning of a new time or chapter in our life, or maybe a season.

Love all the hipsters hating on this guy. This movie was below par at best.
All i could think about is how insane the male character is. He is legit stalker-crazy. I guess some girls would think he's sweet or something but in real life he'd be such a whiny fuckin loser... and his guy friends just put up with it in the movie. So cheesy... lol
such a waste of time.
