They meet at work where Tom works as gift card writer, and Summer is just hired as the receptionist. Tom instantly falls in love with Summer and claims that she is his only true love. After weeks of abscessing over Summer they finally have a real conversation when they go to a company outing to a karaoke bar. When the outing ends Summer finds out that Tom like her. over the next several days they start to flirt at the office, and even make out once in the copy room. Then over the next few months they continue to flirt and start to seam like a real couple taking trips everywhere together. However not all is well. We find out that Summer was not thinking of them as an actual couple. This is where the roller coaster starts. Tom feels real upset and is mad at Summer because she is the only one that gets a say in the relationship. then as the movie continues we find out how Tom life is without Summer. He is miserable and that starts to reflect on his work as he starts to write greeting cards that are more gloomy then happy. it is clears to Tom that he must have Summer back. so he does what ever he can to charm her and get her back.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 The movie was written great. I found the way that  Scott Neustsdte, and Michael Weber wrote and portrayed the movie was excellent. They were able to make it so easy to comprehend the movie and the roller-coater relationship that Tom and Summer had. The writers were going allover the place in the events that happened chronologically. One scene you are in the beginning of the relationship and the next you somewhere in the middle, then back again to somewhere the beginning. usually I would say that this made it a little difficult to understand the plot however the way the writers did it in this movie it made it so it was easier to comprehend how much Tom loved Summer and the Effects it had on him. So i applaud the writers for how they were able to make the film easy to understand.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       I felt that the acting in the movie was great.Zooey Deschanl and Joseph Gordon Levitt worked really great together. You can a great scene of chemistry between them. May it could be because they have worked in a film together before. what ever the case may be they were great together. They portrayed their roles with such conviction that they really felt like a couple and  not two actors acting to be in love. However i feel that  Joseph Gordon Levitt was the better of the two actors. I also felt that he had a harde role having to be happy and sad throughout the movie. anyway he was still able to play his role happy and sad with a great sence of conviction. On the other Zooey Deschanl was of a little less quality. At certain parts of the movie I felt that she said her lines with out passion that the mood was asking for.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               (500)Days Of Summer was a romantic comedy that is perfect movie to watch on a date. This movie can be a great movie to relive stress as it provide that happy ending that the audience wants. i also must give credits to the writers as they tried to come out with an original movie. It is not your average love story as it also shows you the downs of the relationship and not only the “happy”. I love the analogy that the movie presents “When Summer ends there is always Autumn”. If you think of the this analogy and  compare it to the end of relationship, it is very true.
