<IMG SRC="/images/archivesart/500days.jpg" WIDTH=200 BORDER=0 ALIGN=RIGHT><i>This is a story of boy meets girl, begins the wry, probing narrator of "500 Days Of Summer," and with that the film takes off at breakneck speed into a year-and-a-half of one young man's no-holds-barred love affair. Tom, the boy, still believes, even in this cynical modern world, in the notion of transforming, cosmically destined, lightning-strikes-once kind of love. Summer (Zooey Deschenel), the girl, doesn't. Not at all. But that doesn't stop Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) from going after her, again and again, like a modern Don Quixote, with all his might and courage. Suddenly, Tom is in love not just with a lovely, witty, intelligent woman - not that he minds any of that - but with the very idea of Summer, the very idea of a love that still has the power to shock the heart and stop the world. </i>

My wife had been pretty excited about seeing this one. We've been seeing trailers for it on several Blu-ray discs from Fox. Both of us are romantic comedy fans and we both really enjoyed Katherine Heigl's work in the recent Knocked Up. Unfortunately this one was a bit of a disappointment. It has a few good laughs but was weak on the romance and we didn't connect with the characters at all. Heigl is good but the rest of the characters were a bit one dimensional and I think this could have been the most cut and dry performance to date from Ed Burns. With so many great romantic comedies out there, I would suggest looking elsewhere on date night.
