Consensus: A clever, offbeat romantic comedy, 500 Days of Summer is refreshingly honest and utterly charming.

Bill Goodykoontz

An unpredictable, immensely satisfying experience, much like love itself.

If it just misses being this generation's 'Annie Hall', it's still deliciously refreshing, sweet and fizzy. A sherbet dip of a movie.

(500) Days is a funny, seductive, and surprisingly honest dramatization of the ways we snooker ourselves into incompatible love.

Forcedly cute, clumsily mechanical, overdetermined, and undernourished, this ostensibly soulful romance is a plastic void.

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.

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.

It's very smooth and well done; Marc Webb clearly has a solid visual eye and natural sense of pacing.

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.

Romantic comedies are largely dependent on two things: Sharp writing and electrifyingly realistic performances from the lead actors. "(500) Days of… More

Very sweet and romantic, but perhaps my viewing was soured because I was too caught up in comparing it to my play. Both have non-linear structures, but I have… More
