Critic Review - CNNRadio

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?

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.

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.
