This movie has been one of the very few films i don't mind watching over and over. First of all, I like that it is unlike so many love stories and films about love out there and like the poster says, 500 Days of Summer isn't a love story, its a story about love. I dont think i'll be spoiling anything by saying the character's relationship in the movie doesn't end up so nicely. The movie starts off with a disclaimer "any resemblance to people living or dead is purely coincidental. Especially you Jenny Beckman... Bitch."
HIlarious way to start off a movie but does this mean Jenny Beckman is Summer Finn? Well i did some research and i found out that she just might be. The movie is based on writer Scott Neustadter's failed relationship. Im not quite sure if this ex girlfriend is in fact a Jenny Beckman but both Scott and director Marc Webb talk about turning this story into a film. http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Exclusive-Interview-500-Days-Of-Summer-Screenwriters-13994.html It made sense to me afterward as well because in the movie, there is a scene where Tom is down about Summer and his friend says something along the lines of (because i really dont remember) turning a woman into literature to get over her. Well, wether or not Jenny is Summer, this is a great movie because its a good escape from predictable love stories.
