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.

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

Forcedly cute, clumsily mechanical, overdetermined, and undernourished, this ostensibly soulful romance is a plastic void.

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

If it just misses being this generation's 'Annie Hall', it's still deliciously refreshing, sweet and fizzy. A sherbet dip of a movie.
September 4, 2009
It is hardly the freshest romantic comedy of the past 20 years. Taking the best bits from other movies and rearranging them in a non-linear sequence does not make for an original film.
September 4, 2009
Despite clever moments and Hornbyesque touches of melancholy, it's let down by sitcom cliches, and by being weirdly incurious about the inner life of its female lead.

(500) Days of Summer is a great film - a step in genre and gender development that will be referenced for years to come. And aside from all that, it's really good fun.
September 4, 2009
Comparisons with Woody Allen are misplaced - the lines don't punch the way Woody's used to - but the cinematography does a good job of making unfashionable corners of Los Angeles look like Allen's Manhattan.

This is a romantic comedy that makes the concept of romantic comedies appealing again -- that reminds you how resonant and transporting they can be when they're done right.

It isn't Hugh and Andie or Meg and whomever, but (500) Days offers hope that Hollywood can pass that romance baton to somebody other than the crude crew of the Kappa Alpha Apatow frat house.

This is movie magic most unexpected.
July 24, 2009
[A] visually witty, flawlessly played romantic comedy.

This movie has flighty warmth. It makes delirious use of one of Hall & Oates' boppiest tunes. It has a bluebird of happiness, for crying out loud.
July 24, 2009
Captures with such immediacy the elation and anxiety of new love, the tingle and the terror, the profound sense that you have never been more alive and the occasional wish that you could die on the spot.
July 23, 2009
Falling in love or falling out? This film offers a helpful tonic for either condition.
July 23, 2009
The swooningly romantic comedy (500) Days of Summer is a movie that will be discovered, embraced and shared with friends like a favorite record album.
July 17, 2009
What saves 500 Days from terminal shallowness are Gordon-Levitt and Deschanel, who are not the usual picture-perfect androids peopling these young-love idylls.
July 17, 2009
(500) Days of Summer is something seldom seen: an original romantic comedy.
July 17, 2009
A romantic comedy that feels like real life.
