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.

Similar taste in stuff, it seems, is not reason enough to love a movie.

An unpredictable, immensely satisfying experience, much like love itself.

(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
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.

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.

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.

(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.

Zany visuals and spirited performances makes 500 Days of Summer an entertaining chronicle of the making and breaking of a modern secular relationship.

An endearing, well-acted film that takes a conventional premise and turns it into something wonderfully unconventional.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

Hopefully writers Neustadter and Weber have already got another project in the works.

This is the movie The Breakup was advertised to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4.0
January 31, 2010
The film's bruised yet clear-eyed romanticism is refreshing to find in a genre that often settles for something less than truthful or passionate.

... it does a nice job of charting the rise and fall of a relationship with heart, soul and a recognition that it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.
January 6, 2010
We have been trained by Hollywood to react a certain way to a certain kind of movie and 500 Days of Summer seeks to un-train us through shock therapy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

Abound conventions and the occasional nugget of overwrought wit threaten, but fail, to cripple the leads' revelatory sincerity.
