Synopsis


(500) Days of Summer
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel star in director Marc Webb's wry, nonlinear romantic comedy about a man who falls head over heels for a woman who doesn't believe in love. Tom (Gordon-Levitt) is an aspiring architect who currently earns his living as a greeting card writer. Upon encountering his boss' beautiful new secretary, Summer (Deschanel), Tom discovers that the pair have plenty in common despite the fact that she's seemingly out of his league; for starters, they both love the Smiths, and they're both fans of surrealist artist Magritte. Before long Tom is smitten. All he can think about is Summer. Tom believes deeply in the concept of soul mates, and he's finally found his. Unfortunately for Tom, Summer sees true love as the stuff of fairy tales, and isn't looking for romance. Undaunted and undeterred by his breezy lover's casual stance on relationships, Tom summons all of his might and courage to pursue Summer and convince her that their love is real. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Romantic Comedy for guys

    Posted

    From the opening editor's note to the final scene of the film, I absolutely loved it. Joseph Gordon-Levitt does an amazing job portraying Tom Hansen, an over-emotional love blind guy who falls in love with Summer Finn, played by Zooey Deschanel, a realist who doesn't believe in love at first sight. Everything about this film is done so well from the acting to the way the film is shot and even to the soundtrack. Coming from a man's perspective, this film brings truth to how good and bad a relationship can make a person feel. The drama/comedy/romantic themes that run throughout the film are mixed together in a way that made me feel as though I was there watching this unfold before me. The timeline in which the story is told adds to the story from Tom's point of view. This is not your typical "guy gets the girl it the end" type of film. I think everyone would get the message this film trys to tell. I personally have added this film to my movie collection and would recommend you do the same.

    I'd seen this film relatively soon after its inital theatrical release and didn't remember liking it much. I believe t may have been because it wasn't the film I was expecting. Over the years I've come to enjoy JGL and Zooey's other works, so finding this in the local bargain bin I decided to give it another try. The Blu-rays specs and supplements are sound if not overwhelming and the film itself has definitely grown on me although it's still a bit tasking to get through since it's intentionally shot in a sort of scatterbrained way. Well worth the bargain price purchase.

    Great Movie

    500 Days of Summer isn't your typical Romantic/Comedy movie. It's actually quite unique. As someone who has ACTUALLY watched every minute of the movie and enjoyed it, I can tell you that you'll get your dollar's worth. This movie is a keeper. You'll laugh; you'll cry; you'll feel sorrow and excitement; and this movie will also make you think - reminiscing your life. Overall Joseph Gordin-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel do a great job. It's a must-see if your a fan of the Romantic/Comedy genre or even if your aren't - perhaps it'll widen your perception of the world around you.

    First of all my hats off to the crew who made this movie. Someone must have felt some pain in the past to have crafted such a well made movie. I really enjoyed this and felt the cast did a wonderful job. Thankfully I am happily married because if I saw this in the past I would have had nightmares. Not a typical chick-flick at all. Geared more towards guys. Buy it and enjoy it. Unless you are in a rocky relationship... then hold off.

    Honest, Well Done Movie

    Posted
    Anzo

    This is a delightful, honest movie about relationships and the sting that can occur when searching for "the one". Well filmed, well acted and well written. The movie never takes itself too seriously with plenty of goofiness along with the drama. Highly recommended for all. For those conscious about content, there is a good but not excessive amount of foul language and implied "romantic" encounters but nothing blatant.

    I absolutely love this film because of the realism and not only that, the reality how a relationship is. None of that lovey dovey garbage, the real reality how women really are and what men have to go through especially men that are truly in love with their women. The acting is superb, it's realistic, and not like your other dumb love films which always has a happy ending.

    I saw this movie when it first came out and I loved it. Over time I guess my tastes have changed a little. I found that I did not enjoy it as much as I did in the past. I think there is nothing particularly bad or wrong about the movie. Its just not as good as I remembered it to be. If you enjoy romance comedy where men behave like love struck fools, you will enjoy this.
