500 Days of Summer

I loved this movie.
I loved it so much I want to immediately go see it again.
And I want the soundtrack!!

It is not a romantic comedy. Although it is romantic, and it is funny. Trust me. GO SEE IT.

The movie is a non-linear retelling of a love story that ended in heartache. We flip back and forth though the beginning, middle and end of what, at times, seemed like a match made in heaven- and try to figure out where it went wrong.

I love the song, "You Make My Dreams Come True" by Hall and Oates. (Love it so much in fact, I put it in the video montage sound recording of my Mom's memorial service...) The song is not only in the movie, but it's also the best scene in the movie. Loved it. Loved it. Loved it.

I wish more movies like this were made.
