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 11, 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.

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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

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.

Movies like this are the reason why I love movies.

As Summer, Zooey Deschanel is an enchanting, blue-eyed mixture of nearness and distance. You can see why Tom loves her, even as she stomps on his heart.

It's very smooth and well done; Marc Webb clearly has a solid visual eye and natural sense of pacing.

You've seen this movie before (just usually with a fakey big-kiss ending; extra points here for the blunt honesty about breakups) but this one is just right for Right Now.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

(500) Days of Summer is as close to perfect as a movie gets. A highly subjective claim? Sure, but so are all movie reviews, and this is hardly the time to get into that argument.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
August 4, 2010
Zany visuals and spirited performances makes 500 Days of Summer an entertaining chronicle of the making and breaking of a modern secular relationship.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 10, 2010
An endearing, well-acted film that takes a conventional premise and turns it into something wonderfully unconventional.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
May 7, 2010
Sweet and cute, but capable of so much more.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 15, 2010
Hopefully writers Neustadter and Weber have already got another project in the works.
