I finally got around to seeing 500 Days of Summer. I'll use white text in this post from here on out, so that if you haven't seen it yet, it won't be spoiled for you. If you want to read on, just highlight the rest of the post and the text will show up.
This move made me feel very, very cranky. For no apparent reason. But you can ask B. - I was definitely ornery when he got home. Up until the last 15 minutes or so, I LOVED this movie. I have a crush/crush on Joseph Gordon Levitt and a total girl crush on Zooey Deschanel.
But I was kind of devastated when they didn't end up together, when she left him TO MARRY someone else.
Don't get me wrong, it's refreshing and wonderful when a romantic comedy/drama doesn't have a happily-ever-after ending. However, these two had such great chemistry and were so clearly meant for each other, it seemed unfeasible that she'd leave him for someone else.
Maybe this film is just more difficult to watch because it mirrors the experience that so many people go through, and there's no sugar-coating. But whatever it is, I certainly feel more than a pinch of disappointment.
