From Amazon.co.uk

500 Days of Summer is like the American Apparel of movies, in that tries really hard to be hip--so hard it sometimes evokes an involuntary cringe. The perfect soundtrack (indie-pop infused with cleverly ironic 80’s hits), the smart cinematography, the occasionally broken fourth wall… It’s a natural progression from mid-00’s “youth-culture” flicks like Garden State and it does a good job rounding out the decade.  Everything in this dramedy resembles a music video and the characters are twentysomethings once again not living up to their full potential.  500 Days of Summer is touted as being really unique and original--it’s not. But that’s not to say that it’s not worth watching; it is, and mostly because of the leads. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel play a couple whose relationship story is told through a series of out-of-order flashbacks. The non-linear storytelling means we hop moment to moment from sweet, romantic and fun to crushingly desperate and sad, because the ultimate point here is that even when we believe we may have found The One, said soulmate might not feel the same way.    

Gordon-Levitt is an exciting actor to watch and after a succession of very serious, very troubled roles, it’s a pleasure to see him here as a mostly well-adjusted young guy whose biggest problem is that he loves someone who doesn’t love him back.  He’s the hero, and as such, Deschanel’s Summer Finn becomes the bad guy a little bit. But Deschanel plays it all big-eyed, conflicted and real and so you can’t help but forgive her. The much-lauded musical scene is tremendously joyful;  if it doesn’t put a smile on your face, nothing will.  500 Days of Summer isn’t groundbreaking, but it's an entertaining movie about hip, beautiful people whose lives you can only enjoy for about two hours before getting back to your own.--Kira Canny, Amazon.com

Product Description

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel star in this offbeat romantic comedy, the feature debut of music video director Marc Webb, which chronicles 500 days in the on/off relationship of Summer (Deschanel) and Tom (Gordon-Levitt). While Summer steadfastly refuses to believe in true love, asserting that real life will always get in the way in the end, Tom has thrown caution to the wind and fallen hook, line and sinker in love with her. Where can their so-called relationship lead?

4.0 out of 5 stars Boy meets girl...and the rule book gets torn up. 10 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
Before seeing this, I had already pigeon-holed this as the typical rom-com concept that's been flogged to death of late. Salvation I thought, may come in it's indie-like feel having seen a trailer. After going to 'keep the peace' with my girlfriend, I've come away very pleasently surprised.
The basic plotline of 'boy meets girl' may start the film, but a short way into it's running time, it's apparent this is going somewhere different.
The film's structure is all over the place chronologically. It's timeline moves back and forth with fevered intensity, but works all the better for it(Helpfully, for those not paying attention, each of the 500 days in question is numbered onscreen).
Refreshingly, much of the standard material normally seen in this sort of fare is missing.
Both leads are hugely appealing and likable, displaying believable chemistry together when scenes call for it.
The director, and the two screenwriters are male, which I found lent the Joseph Gordon Levitt's Tom the more sympathetic edge. Zooey Deschanel's title character Summer however, comes across as a representation of every woman man has failed to truely understand. Anyone who is a fan of author Mike Gayle, will find similarities of his work here.
For a film such as it is, the overall tone is decidedly pro male and ever so slightly dark, but don't let that put you ladies off. There are some nice moments of light comedy, and the 'morning after' scene is superb. Another, demonstrating a key moment with both 'expectation' and 'reality' using a splitscreen is particularly poignant. And somewhere buried in the material, yes, there is ultimately romance as well.
The soundtrack is excellent and subtley used, making a marked change from the likes of One Republic being blasted out.

By Lark TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This movie is an engaging story of one mans romantic misadventures, while it would appear to recommend itself to most strongly as a "chick flick" the movie's central protagonist is a man and his trials and travils in seeking romance I think would resonate with any thinking man too.

The film is a chronicle of 500 days spent with or related to the female love interest Summer, there's the awkward beginnings of the relationship and our male protagonist criss crosses through despair, new hopes, obsessiveness and real crankiness.

There is some reflection throughout, when our hero speaks with friends, a wisened younger female character too (the actress from Kick Ass) and while he is sympathetic throughout it is played with the right amount of whiney and obsessive character so that it is obvious to the watcher just why our protagonist is being rejected and will be.

His feelings of persecution or being wronged are totally misplaced and it is pointed out to him that he is unfair in feeling that way and projecting a lot of hostility in the direction of Summer, who has not misled him at any point.

Depending on what you think about the feature it could be a happily ever after story in which experience provides insight and everyone moves on. Or it could be depicting a terrible sort of cycle which one person is going to experience and re-experience with different people. I felt that it was suggesting that when disappointment intrudes upon hopes of love and romance that you dont throw out the baby with the bathwater and give up on love and romance per se because on this one occasion it hasnt worked out. Other conclusions could be drawn I guess.

3.0 out of 5 stars Little bit slow but good 8 July 2010
By Amy Connolly VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This felt like a quirky French film to me, which I love. It was a little slow in places but overall enjoyable. Awesome soundtrack.

I like the way it was filmed, going back and forth, it made it more interesting. I'd recommend it to those who enjoy quirky films and who are looking for some entertainment. It's quite funny in places and worth a watch.

It's a feel good movie despite the story line.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is This Summer Blockbuster Love At First Sight? 29 July 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Please note that this is a review of the film and not the Blu-Ray transfer. This also contains spoilers.

Let's get one thing straight from the start, (500) Days of Summer is not your average Hugh Grant, happily-ever-after romantic comedy flick. Like the tagline says, this is not a love story; this is a story about love. Director Marc Webb certainly knew what he was doing whevn he hired the two leading actors, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Brick, Inception), who plays charming yet naÔve Tom, and Zooey Deschanel (New Girl, The Happening) who takes the role of Summer, the strikingly beautiful yet quirky love-interest. The two have remarkable chemistry throughout the film, and many memorable moments that will jerk an emotion or two. The film's basic setting is perfect for the film; Los Angeles captures the troubles of a modern day relationship.
The film's structure is very unique, rather than following a linear A-to-B, start-to-finish motion, it chooses to show the audience Tom's time with Summer in a jittery, random timeline, starting with the day he meets her in his workplace, to the day when they finally say their goodbyes. This adds a certain level of fresh originality to the film; it almost feels like a light-hearted, cute version of Christopher Nolan's Memento. In some parts of the film, it shows the aftermath of a previous argument between the couple that has the audience has not seen yet, creating a sense of dramatic irony when the argument is finally shown. This keeps the viewer intrigued as to what will happen next in this rollercoaster/train wreck of a relationship between the couple.
