Friday Night Flicks (500) Days of Summer

Ever since "Ten Things I Hate About You" I have appreciated Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and he has only gotten better over the years. In (500) Days of Summer he is an aspiring architect who somehow settled down as a greeting card writer. He believes in true love and soul mates and is convinced Summer Finn (Zooey Deshanel) is it. Their up and down relationship is the basis for the film. This film plays with a non-chronological style, such as in the earlier film, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", and five hundred days with Summer turns out to be a quirky, offbeat journey that explores why certain people click as partners and others end up fighting all the time.

(500) Days of Summer is not your conventional romantic comedy, but it is funny and romantic. Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes you care about his character and his journey. The ending is perfect! In case you haven't already seen this film, I won't give it away. I will just say, watch this movie sometime and enjoy!
