This film is about relationships, commitments, coincidences and making the right decisions. In 500 days that Tom have known Summer, He thought that he’s finally found the one but he was wrong. Summer is not into commitments, she don’t want to put label on it. She just want to enjoy herself while young and pretty and all that. So the moment that our dear Tom assumed something, Summer disappeared from his life and surprise, surprise! – she married another guy. Realizing that Tom is right all along that some things are just really not meant to be.

“You never wanted to be anybody’s girlfriend and now you’re somebody’s wife” – Tom Hansen

I’ll give this film a 7 out of 10 rating for its unusual boy meets girl theme with a bitchy twist. Its soundtrack is awesome and the story is very much relatable specially if you’re cynical type. The sequencing of the film could get a bit confusing, but having a very simple yet complicated plot – you’d be able to enjoy it but surely, you’re not gonna watch it for the third time. A couple of views are enough. My favorite scenes would have to be Tom seeking love advices from his little sister. Since Summer’s attitude became unbearable, it’s a good thing that we’re able to breath every now and then…
