    The movie is called "500 Days of Summer", not "500 Days of Tom's Relationship with Summer". They're counting from the day he saw her until the day he moved on.

    Just from previews alone I don't see anyone as the 'bad guy'. But to me, from what I've seen it's kind of sad. He just didn't realize that maybe he wasn't the one for her. He went so far as to not ask her what she wanted. Just poor communication on both ends. She was clear on what she wanted with him, but continued the connection anyway. Then he never realized she acted cold and distant at times. And, how odd to be engaged to someone else weeks later. This movie is now added to my watch later list. I'm genuinely interested now.

    Me. I had that much Vinvyl in the 90s as a teenager. They were all owned by my folks, but I'd pinched a bunch of them, partly as I also had the only functioning turntable in the household.

    I know this is not meant to be taken 100% seriously but most of these are not faults at all. Tom is an a**hole, the narration is twisted on purpose and the cliches are there to give you the full picture. That is not because they f*cked up but because they wanted to take on a genre and make something new with it.

    This movie is weirdly one of the most emotional movies for me, probably because I’ve been on both sides of this type of relationship and it brings up a lot of shit. Or maybe most relationships share similarities and that’s partially the point.

    #21 Unfortunately, this does happen a lot. I’m fairly outgoing and “the jokester” among my friends, but really shy and introverted/quiet around new people and strangers. I was out with friends and was introduced to someone they knew who (after talking a while) said, “You’re actually a really nice guy! My friends and I thought you were totally stuck up because you never talk to anyone.”

    #19 Actually, my HS always published a supplemental, which was published at the very end of the school year (sometimes even the next year) so what did happen at the end of the year made it into the yearbook. There’s no indication the picture was from the supplemental, but my HS never had quotes under any of the class pictures, so... I’m actually there’s not more of a sin for every student getting a quote.

    i think people are giving Summer way too much credit. yes, they were both wrong, tom with all his projections, but sorry, she was a nightmare with constantly saying this and then doing that, saying she doesnt want a relationship and then proceeds kissing, fucking, stringing him along and in the end lady " i cant do commitment " marries away to a guy she knows a maximum of 100 days tops. and she again tries to hold toms hand in the end and send mixed signals. BYE girl.

    I enjoyed this video and it made me laugh, but I do have one grievance. I disagree with sinning this movie for showing a '90s kid that owns vinyl. I grew up in the '90s (I even remember watching Joseph Gordon-Levitt on Third Rock From The Sun then) and I collected vinyl. I also knew of plenty of indie bands that were still putting out records on vinyl in the '90s. Yes, more people were buying cassettes and CDs during that time, but vinyl never completely disappeared.

    There's no such thing as a "casual sexual relationship" no matter what you people try to make themselves and each other think. Her being with a guy in a bar was her bad. They are in a relationship, she knows it and he knew it. She ABSOLUTELY needed to apologize. Even if you have an agreement to be casual if you see someone else on the side you still need to treat it like you are cheating and hide that person from the other person at all costs.

    3:08 and Yes she is a B.It it were Capetan America she would totally talk to him.sin removed. strong independant woman clishe deserve to be treated equal, but dont treat men equally-Sin. 5:43 This is very common just not to most men in todays day of age, since women are attracted to their male bosses, and are privatly together.And the boss is not missusing his position becasue women can find other jobs, but dont want to work minimum wage, even thou they dont have kids.Women do it bacause they want to, since the power is in there hands, clishe=10SINs 9:37Equality, and she only did it to make sure he is on a leash, to keep him around for when she needs him for what she needs him,(not just s-x).And at the end of the film once she finds someone else she will just break it up, just like that, witch is weird because every relashionship and butty call ends up with explenation, women ask and get it, so why should it be any diffrent, she moved to a diffrent place because she is well known. 11:19 when doosh bags are bad twrds other its considered funny, when a nice guy is mad making him self look bad, he is considered an icel, as-hole exetra -100SIN for putting men down for having it tought in life, when women are in this kind of situacion we feel bad for them even thou they fall for the ritch guy.100SIN

    First off, yes, the "they don't have Born To Run but they have Pixies" thing is total bullshit. Some of the things pointed out and scrutinized in this video were valid. Having said that, I've been a fan of this channel for about 9 years. But I honestly didn't care this video for this movie or a lot of the criticisms of it you made. I love this movie. Well acted, great writing, awesome music, wonderful stylistic and creative presentation/direction. Thank you for acknowledging how great the expectations/reality scene is. I think the film is funny, it's painful, it's deep, it's musical, it's moving, it's personal, and I think it's one of the better films about love/relationships that's come out in the last 15 years. I like this channel a lot and I'll continue to be a fan of the channel and your content. But this movie is something of a personal thing for me and it's one of my favorites and some of what you did stung a bit. You talk that way about movies that's your job and most of the time I enjoy it. I know Valentine's Day is coming and that's probably why you did this movie but there are far worse movies you haven't done that could fit. Maybe you guys don't hate the movie or anything. Maybe you like more things about it than the video would indicate. You're just giving it the patented CinemaSins treatment and again, it's your job. It's what you do. But it does seem I feel differently about this movie than you do and that can't be helped. But I hope that in the future, the fates and your own judgement will steer you away from doing these small good emotional films like this that mean a a great deal to a lot of people on a personal level.
