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… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An unpredictable, immensely satisfying experience, much like love itself."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"If it just misses being this generation's 'Annie Hall', it's still deliciously refreshing, sweet and fizzy. A sherbet dip of a movie."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"(500) Days is a funny, seductive, and surprisingly honest dramatization of the ways we snooker ourselves into incompatible love."
‑ Kimberley Jones, Austin Chronicle
"Tom and Summer may not be the most emotionally stable people on the planet, and if they were my friends, I'd have little sympathy for them."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"You've seen this movie before (just usually with a fakey big-kiss ending; extra points here for the blunt honesty about breakups) but this one is just right for Right Now."
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"Forcedly cute, clumsily mechanical, overdetermined, and undernourished, this ostensibly soulful romance is a plastic void."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"This is a romantic comedy that makes the concept of romantic comedies appealing again -- that reminds you how resonant and transporting they can be when they're done right."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"It manages to deliver a love story that gets you invested even though you know it can't end neatly with either happiness or tragedy, but rather with a bittersweet mishmash of imperfection -- one that that everybody can probably relate to."
‑ Cammila Albertson, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Movies like this are the reason why I love movies."
‑ Scott A. Mantz, Scott Mantz' Movie Reviews
"(500) Days of Summer is as close to perfect as a movie gets. A highly subjective claim? Sure, but so are all movie reviews, and this is hardly the time to get into that argument."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"It's very smooth and well done; Marc Webb clearly has a solid visual eye and natural sense of pacing."
‑ Laremy Legel, Film.com
"It isn't Hugh and Andie or Meg and whomever, but (500) Days offers hope that Hollywood can pass that romance baton to somebody other than the crude crew of the Kappa Alpha Apatow frat house."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Inventive, original and hugely relatable, (500) Days Of Summer is the perfect screen deconstruction of a relationship, for once, from the man's point of view."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"As Summer, Zooey Deschanel is an enchanting, blue-eyed mixture of nearness and distance. You can see why Tom loves her, even as she stomps on his heart."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"Zany visuals and spirited performances makes 500 Days of Summer an entertaining chronicle of the making and breaking of a modern secular relationship."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
