(500) Days of Summer

Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love. Girl doesn't.


(500) Days of Summer
This well-rated rom-com is decidely unconventional, which makes up a large part of its charm. More a boy-meets-girl story than love story, we follow our love-struck hero as he thinks back over his relationship with his boss's assistant. While he's in love, she's not... but what went wrong?

95 minutes.

Box Office
Ray Greene quote iconDon’t be surprised if this Summer provides at least a somewhat hot season at the box office.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconHere is a rare movie that begins by telling us how it will end and is about how the hero has no idea why.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconThis knockout of a movie expertly blends bliss (a dance number complete with an animated blue jay after Tom spends his first night in bed with Summer) and the blues (a split-screen segment in which Tom’s expectation of winning back Summer clashes with reality). The ending is tidy and way too cute, but (500) Days is otherwise a different kind of love story: an honest one that takes a piece out of you.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconThe unexpected, delightful and completely charming surprise of the summer of 2009 for adult viewers looking for something a little different.

Tomatometer quote iconA clever, offbeat romantic comedy, 500 Days of Summer is refreshingly honest and utterly charming.
