What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Zane Henry (Delightfully) fresh spin on tired genre
Jeanne Calitz Dit is nuut, borrelend en uiters verfrissend
Told in such an inventive way
Ray Greene Don’t be surprised if this Summer provides at least a somewhat hot season at the box office.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Here is a rare movie that begins by telling us how it will end and is about how the hero has no idea why.
Peter Travers This 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.
C. Fuchs The unexpected, delightful and completely charming surprise of the summer of 2009 for adult viewers looking for something a little different.
Tomatometer A clever, offbeat romantic comedy, 500 Days of Summer is refreshingly honest and utterly charming.
