Original, quirky and utterly delightful, 500 Days of Summer is a ray of genuine cinematic sunshine coming at the end of a blockbuster season that's been clouded with generic tosh.
August 31, 2019
One thing this certainly is a recipe for, is the near-perfect romantic comedy.
August 5, 2019
Its combination of optimism and practicality is both a refreshing and welcome change to the daily cinematic grind.
July 17, 2019
Injecting a bit of freshness into the genre, 500 Days of Summer is still a hit as the indie anti-romantic comedy hits the ten year mark.
March 10, 2019
This film puts a fresh spin on romantic comedies in a few ways, and even its overly cutesy moments (a Hall & Oates dance number in the park) totally work.

The supporting cast is also good, particularly Matthew Gray Gubler... who brings an unforced charm to his role as one of Tom's sounding boards.
August 30, 2018
This is a film which tries so hard to be fresh and different it loses sight of the bigger picture, is just kind of empty somehow, and rather beefs up the 'rom' and the heartache at the expense of the 'com.'
August 24, 2018
500 Days of Summer is a fascinating and relatable tale of the difficulties and the joys that come with all relationships, but which also serves a stark warning to young romantics as to what can happen while in and out of love.

A romantic drama with an effervescent touch of comedy... [Full review in Spanish]

The principals perform their roles nicely, but there really isn't much for them to do. Undoubtedly, the age gap has influenced my negative response.

I found much to like in (500) Days of Summer, not the least of which is its emotional candour.
September 12, 2017
What makes this movie so seamless is the spot-on performances of the two lead actors and the very relatable story of what happens when love--and life--happens.
August 17, 2017
By the 501st day, it's hard to muster much sympathy for either Tom or Summer. Thank goodness it's not called 1,000 Days of Summer.
May 17, 2016
Similar taste in stuff, it seems, is not reason enough to love a movie.
February 10, 2014
An unpredictable, immensely satisfying experience, much like love itself.
February 10, 2014
(500) Days is a funny, seductive, and surprisingly honest dramatization of the ways we snooker ourselves into incompatible love.
February 10, 2014
Forcedly cute, clumsily mechanical, overdetermined, and undernourished, this ostensibly soulful romance is a plastic void.
February 10, 2014
It manages to deliver a love story that gets you invested even though you know it can't end neatly with either happiness or tragedy, but rather with a bittersweet mishmash of imperfection -- one that that everybody can probably relate to.
September 29, 2012
Inventive, original and hugely relatable, (500) Days Of Summer is the perfect screen deconstruction of a relationship, for once, from the man's point of view.
July 21, 2012
Tom and Summer may not be the most emotionally stable people on the planet, and if they were my friends, I'd have little sympathy for them.
