(500) Days of Summer

Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love. Girl doesn't. This post modern love story is never what we expect it to be--it's thorny yet exhilarating, funny and sad, a twisted journey of highs and lows that doesn't quite go where we think it will.

“(500) Days of Summer’’ is a gimmick flick down to its title: Summer is a girl, not a season, and 500 days is the amount of time the hero spends falling in and out of love with her. Making his first feature after a successful run of pop videos (Regina Spektor, Daniel Powter, Fergie, etc.), Mark Webb dices the scenes Iron Chef-style, tosses them in the air, and lets them rain achronologically down: Day 34 (Ain’t Love Grand?) is followed by Day 436 (Head in Oven) is followed by Day 257 (We Have to Talk). A ruthlessly hip alt-pop soundtrack is slathered on top like high-fructose frosting.

Disappointing

Recently,I got the opportunity to see (500) Days Of Summer-so I accepted the invitation. Boy,was that a BIG mistake! For a PG-13 movie it appeals more or less to a younger audience,and for a drama it was down right horrible. I laughed throughout the movie rather than cried.
