500 Days Of Summer

7.71 h 35 min2009X-RayHDRUHD12
In this anti- romantic comedy about love and fate, a young greeting card writer (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is hopelessly, helplessly searching for the girl of his dreams...and his new co-worker, Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel), may just be "the one." But the 500 days of their offbeat relationship reveal that the road to happiness can be unpredictable, uncontrollable and unbelievable.

Nice but Weird
Verified purchase
weird little movie - defo rom com in tone, even if it does not completely conform to all the genre tropes.
I liked both the main actors, I thought the did a really great job of selling the story, even if it didn't quite work.
So, Picture perfect crazy cool girl takes up with slightly morose, mildly introverted chap who really needs a kick up the bum to get his life sorted, it is really unclear what she sees in him - but perhaps there is a very good reason for that. There are a few unexpected plot twists and I discovered a fun game to play with friends at weddings.
It was a nice movie but it didn't leave a big impact.
(Like how I watched it a week or so ago and I can't remember the main characters names and can't be bothered to look them up, but I think I hid that quite well in the review)

(500) Days of Summer.
Verified purchase
A clever, bitter-sweet little indie rom-com; it's told in a flashback format with a neat, unexpected twist.
The two leads are attractive and give good performances, but it's a smart manipulation of the viewer's perception of the story that make the film such an interesting experience; it's funny, a little sad and a rather true-to-life look at romance.
Quite a lovely little movie and a cut above a lot of the standard films in this genre.
The standard UK DVD release has deleted scenes and a featurette; English subtitles are available if required.

Downbeat but well executed, good chemistry between leads
Verified purchase
The story is much more about a break up than a romance. Although that is clear from the start, the story did seem to get a big bogged down in its melancholy later, however relatable and understandable that is.

Great chemistry between the couple, and their scenes felt quite realistic on the whole (perhaps not the IKEA ones!)

I think people do behave in the non-committal way the female lead did, and its a good thing to show that somewhere, but its not a popcorn or date movie.

Bittersweet love story that isn't really a love story
Verified purchase
First of all, I love this film. I can recognise people in my own life that could be Tom or Summer and therefore it was very familiar to me. The lead actor and actress are cast perfectly and are supported by a strong cast who help the story to flow in a natural way despite the timeline not being a straightforward one. The angst, quirkiness and flashes of obsession are reminiscent of many peoples road to discovery / 'love' and there are many stumbles on the way.
Despite the moments of despair in this film, I find it quite uplifting in many ways and the music / cultural references really helped me to engage in Summer and Tom's story.
Yes, I would describe it as an indie film but I would say it is accessible to people with varied viewing tastes and gives the viewer a break from the usual romantic drama's / romcoms out there.

A RomCom(?) for men.
Verified purchase
I think the label RomCom is not very accurate for this movie; it is more an exploration of boy meets girl, falls in love, and then love fades away. Unusual in telling the story from the man's point of view. Everything about it rings painfully true (I am a man, and there was nothing I hadn't experienced at one time or another).

I agree with other reviews in that the actors and chemistry are perfect; there's humour and sadness. And the unusual style of the movie adds to the interest. I really like it.

Well maybe you can think of it as a RomCom, for men. Think it also as a handbook on the fickleness and charm of women.

A lot of movies I purchase these days get a bit boring the second or third time you watch them, but in 500 Days of Summer you notice new things every time, which makes it worthwhile. I would like to comment on something I'm sure many people have noticed: that there aren't really any suitable films anymore. If you want to watch a rom-com with your daughter, the only choices available are either brainless or really sexual - to the extent that you feel uncomfortable watching them with your daughter! 500 Days of Summer is genuinely funny (the best joke comes at the end!) and watchable. Would note that it moves quite fast so looking away from the screen for even a moment can mean that you miss a whole chunk. I really fell for the guy - he's so sweet and well meaning, not the popular jock you often get in so many movies these days. Would really recommend!

To die by your side...!
Verified purchase
The first minute of the film the narrator states that this isn't a love story. Although it arguably is, I'd say it's more of a break-up story (not a spoiler). This is probably the first really good rom-com that guys don't have to be embarrassed to watch and the characters are quite relatable (a little too much to me) and apart from the annoying "wise" kid sister, it's a pretty solid cast and a great soundtrack.

Blu-ray transfer is very good though I haven't seen it in any other format so can't compare. The fact that it doesn't come with a digital copy (like most of the DVD releases) and lack of extra features are a tad disappointing, but the film more than makes up for it.

I bought this on rental because the reviews were good. I don't often pay to watch films but thought I would give it a go. I got bored very quickly with this film and didn't watch it til the end
