(500) DAYS OF SUMMER IS THE ROMANTIC COMEDY YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR
At last! A modern romantic comedy with some semblance to real life! In the real world, love isn’t always the same for both parties. There’s no explaining it. You have KNOWN these people and might have survived their angst and unrealistic youthful expectations yourself. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (3rd Rock from the Sun) is naturally appealing as a Tom Hanks “every man” who believes in true love. Zooey Deschanel is perfectly cast as the offbeat object of his affection. The ending is delightfully familiar, but not unrealistic. This is a great summer movie for smart romanticists who are weary of special effects.
