For Tom, it was love at first sight when Summer Finn walked into the greeting card company where he worked. Summer is the new administrative assistant. Soon, Tom knows that Summer is the woman with whom he wants to spend the rest of his life. Although Summer does not believe in relationships or boyfriends, Tom and Summer become more than just friends. Through the trials and tribulations of Tom and Summer's relationship, Tom could always count on the advice of his two best friends, McKenzie and Paul. However, it's Rachel, Tom's adolescent sister, who is his voice of reason. After all is said and done, Tom is the one who ultimately has to make the choice to listen or not.

A bittersweet romance, perfect for a long summer day.

While there is art in here with a few fantastic stand-out scenes, I mostly felt sad and bored with this film. (500) DAYS OF SUMMER is interesting, sure, but not one of my favourites. I've watched it once and probably won't again. I don't recommend it.

I never considered this movie to be a romantic comedy. I loved it nonetheless. It told a story of a man who was hopelessly in love with a girl who only saw him as a friend. Though he wasn't really in the friend zone and they weren't exactly dating it shows what he went through and how that relationship effected his life.

A couple of decent laughs during this deliberately-paced movie. Having hoped to gain some insight into my own personal "related" matters, I was left rather wanting; as the "merely ok" writing was clearly enhanced by the performances of the two leads.

I thought this movie was dumb. The acting was good, but I didn't like the concept.

The movie started well and had some funny moments. However, it was very slow moving. The ending was a nice ending to a very quirky, slow movie.

A quirky, well-written movie that was a pleasant departure from the typical romantic comedy.

Tom: It's official. I'm in love with Summer - I love her smile. I love her hair. I love her knees. I love how she licks her lips before she talks. I love her heart-shaped birthmark on her neck. I love it when she sleeps.

Rachel Hansen: You know, my friends are all in love with you. You know, it's like we said. Plenty of other fish in the sea.
Tom: [Looks at a group of twelve year old girls who wave at him and giggle] Thanks. But, uh, those are guppies.

An interesting way to get you through the 500 Days of Summer...the writer scrambles the days and lets you see what is going on in the budding relationship of a 20 something guy and gal, hired by a card company like Halmark; (i.e. Day 209, they Day 13. Day 95, etc.) Best thing I found about the film was its unique sequencing, (not chronological, not flashback(s) and not a story told in reverse). The story itself did not grab me, but did have a couple of "cute" moments...especially right at the end.

This is a story where boy meets girl - it is not a love story. Tom meets Summer. He instantly falls inlove with her and he knows that she is THE one. But Summer does not believe in love, and has no romantic interest in him - it's what she tells him: they can only be friends. This slowly kills Tom until he starts to feel depressed and start to question the one thing he was always waiting for: faith. It seems that now, when he found THE ONE, she does not want him. How is it possible? This this he so strongly believed in seems to be unreal... How will everything turn out?

I like Zooey,though she reminds me of the 2 Rachels I know. But I think Ilike ' Gigantic 'just a little bit more.

An offbeat romantic comedy about a woman who doesn't believe true love exists, and the young man who falls for her.

After it looks as if she's left his life for good this time, Tom Hansen reflects back on the just over one year that he knew Summer Finn. Despite being physically average in almost every respect, Summer had always attracted the attention of men, Tom included. For Tom, it was love at first sight when she walked into the greeting card company where he worked, she the new administrative assistant. Soon, Tom knew that Summer was the woman with whom he wanted to spend the rest of his life. Although Summer did not believe in relationships or boyfriends - in her assertion, real life will always ultimately get in the way - Tom and Summer became more than just friends. Through the trials and tribulations of Tom and Summer's so-called relationship, Tom could always count on the advice of his two best friends, McKenzie and Paul. However, it is Tom's adolescent sister, Rachel, who is his voice of reason. After all is said and done, Tom is the one who ultimately has to make the choice to listen or not.
