  1. Ultimately, the best thing about (500) Days of Summer isn't its gimmicky script. It's the constant performance of Gordon-Levitt, who shifts, scene-by-scene, from moments of ebullience to abject dejection.
  2. Reviewed by: Nathan Lee

    For all its rhetorical whimsy and hipster dressings, (500) Days of Summer is a thoroughly conservative affair, as culturally and romantically status quo as any Jennifer Aniston vehicle.
  3. An exhaustive and exhausting dissection of a relationship that was never all that promising in the first place.

    It's a travesty that this movie has a lower score on metacritic than District 9. You won't be disappointed by seeing it.
