Zooey’s character is like a paper cutout of a woman that some dude created and was like, ‘yeah, this is the perfect woman.’ So flat.
A good movie but unfortunate that it relies so heavily on the manic pixie dream girl trope rather than making Zoe’s character more multi-dimensional.
Smart, charming and touching romantic comedy. Joseph Gorden Levitt & Zooey Deschanel sparkle in this bright and interesting tale in the struggle to find a compatible lover. The music is exhilarating in this feel good film.
awesome movie love to watch it agian
Honestly, I was not interested in watching it at all when it came out. But everyone said it was great. So the other day I rented it and... I loved it! Such a good movie!
This movie is absolutely FABULOUS. I love it. Zooey Deschanel is a new favorite actress of mine. I love that it's set in Los Angeles, one of the most beautiful cities in the world (as it was said in the movie... I love there). Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a amazing actor, with adorable boyish charm that will captivate the hearts of viewers worldwide. This movie was definitely #1 on my list of top movies of 2009. The soundtrack's also pretty great. I love everything about the film. :D
A cute tale of love and... not love. Poor guy can't catch a break... For me it's the supporting cast who really make this movie shine though. Matthew Gray Gubler is exceptional! Great comedic timing on his part. He's always passionate about his work and this is no exception! 5 stars overall... 5 stars just for Matthew!
Good acting , but the story was not that interesting.
The Year's Best Film thus far
Fantastic movie. Probably the best romantic comedy I've seen (I'm a guy so take from that what you want). This was not a chick flick, just a movie about a relationship, and it is VERY funny. The comedy keeps it bearable because like someone else said, a lot of the movie is pretty depressing, but it is very well written and acted. Great story, I recommend it to everyone. Two thumbs up!
I enjoyed this movie. The layout was unique and equally effective. The characters were deeply developed, again equalled flawed. It doesn't have the ending you might expect, you might even walk out of the theatre a little depressed, but that's what made it fun for me and my wife. I do kind of hate the character "Summer".
So funny, it really touched my heart. Makes me want to have summer all the time.
Great movie! Funny and entertaining with deeply developed characters. Definately connects with the viewer. On a negative side, the story could be delivered in a much more streight forward way, I did not enjoy spending first 40 minutes of the movie figuring out what was going on...
I loved this movie it was really good. It is a fun movie you will enjoy
Loved every minute of this movie. Broke my heart in places, wonderful acting. Unique story telling and very entertaining.
Complete role reversal. Usually it's the woman who is pursuing a relationship, even when it's not really there. And then gets her heart broken.
The movie shows emotional cruelty to a nice guy. Shows how shallow, unpredictable, inconsiderate,immature and heartless women can be sometimes.
This is the perfect girl in the world, to bad most are shallow and materialistic. GREAT MOVIE!
One of the greatest anti-romance film ever made.
"there's always more fish in the sea" never made more sense to me after watching this movie..
Excellent movie! Charming, funny and realistic! A fresh love story!
To bad most girls aren't like this
Why can't women be like this girl?
Goes to show that Hollywood doesnt have to spend $175 Million (see GI Joe) to make a movie that people will enjoy. Give us more movies about relationships too please and thank you.
so so so cute and nice and creative and well thought out very enjoyable and different
Amazing movie!! A must see!!! You wont regret it. Definitely worth making the trip to the theatre. :)
such an awesome movie...it's blunt, down to the point, and real! what more can you ask for?
It's deeper than it looks
Very charming and dare I say "quirky". It's a romantic comedy, but not in the traditional sense. A movie for grown-ups...it's not laugh out loud, but I caught myself smiling through the whole thing. Every one will see something in themselves in this couples relationship.
This was a VERY cute movie! Love every minute of it.
One of the very best movies of all times! Funny, moving without being sappy,thoughtful and clever. A multi-presentational format, that keeps the movie zipping along and keeps the audience thinking!
I love this movie.The idea is very original and unlike other love stories. It's also very real! Can't help but falling in love with the actor,he's very charming. Not a fan of Deschanel but she's pretty good too! and I LOVE THE WARDROBE!A MUST SEE!SKIP THE UGLY TRUTH AND INVEST YOUR MONEY IN THIS MOVIE INSTEAD!
entertaining, but depressing at the same time. in fact, this movie is too depressing for a date movie. good music scores.
not bad. it was a good story
