(500) Days of Summer

Alli and I caught our second screening of the week tonight — Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the independent romantic comedy (of sorts): (500) Days of Summer.

It’s an interesting movie, a little bit different take on the traditional romantic comedy. It opens up with a very comical letter from the writer, but I won’t spoil that. I’ll just say: don’t be late.

Zooey Deschanel is becoming somewhat of an indie flick darling and she’s really the star of the movie; she is, after all, Summer. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt…well, he’s come a long way since playing the annoying little kid on 3rd Rock from the Sun. He’s really grown into a good actor.

The chemistry between her and Gordon-Levitt is really charming, even if it’s doomed from the start. Or is it? That’s kind of the great thing about the movie. You root for them all along, even if you aren’t sure why or if they’re even right for each other. Plus, the soundtrack is really good. I don’t want to say anything more about it…I want people to discover it for themselves.

We both really enjoyed the movie. I probably liked Away We Go a little better, but it was definitely better than Tuesday’s movie.

  1. I like Zooey Deschanel. I like her because she seems relatively intelligent in interviews. I like her because she doesn’t have fake boobs and fake blond hair. I like her because she doesn’t look like your typical Hollywood actress and has a natural beauty. I like her because she can act and she generally chooses good movies to be in. I like her because she’s not on the cover of US Magazine every week out partying. I like her because she’s cool and quirky. I like her because she’s not obvious.

    This is the kind of person I would like for my 15 year old daughter to see in movies. Not druggie Lindsay Lohan or ho bag Megan Fox. (Megan is hot, but trampy and dumb, with a HIDEOUS tattoo to boot.)

    Maybe these reasons are some of the reasons why men find her attractive?

  2. I thought this movie was charming! Love it! And Suzanne, I love you and miss you! You are dead on about every thing you said! If I have to hear Megan Fox say one more time how “painfully insecure” she is about her looks as she purses her lips and sticks out her ass I am going to puke!

    Hugs to your gorgeous family!
