We gave it a B+

He’s into her way more than she’s into him. We all know the story. Some of us have even lived it. But the charm of alterna-rom-com (500) Days of Summer is how it both embraces and subverts the genre?s clichés. That said, the film’s repeated references to The Graduate don’t help its cause. EXTRAS include deleted scenes and a jokey commentary. B+
