Maybe, its Tom and Summer These are real everyday people. Tom, a believer in true love. Which reminds me of one particular scene where Summer questions Tom about believing in love. Tom replies, "It's love, it's not Santa Claus.
Tom falls in love with Summer from the start.

It makes you notice the little things in relationships. The film highlights two young stars on the rise. With some great performances lately for Joseph Gordon-Levitt, his stock is rising The story is not in direct order as it goes back and forth from different days Tom remembers his life and relationship with Summer.
When remembering, we may not remember every detail in order. We choose what we want to remember. May that be the good, or the bad. For Tom, it's a little bit of both.
MOVIES ON A PLANE: 500 DAYS A SUMMER
Big props to the editing department. The film shows the good and the bad of love, relationships, and life. There's something about it that sets it apart from the usual romantic comedy.
It's funny, unique, and true to life. It's got something for everybody to like.
Director Marc Webb shines in his feature film debut. I'm interested to see where he goes from here. Are we really expected to know where we are in the story based on a non-linear and arbitrary selection of days, or even care?
Most of the scenes are too short to allow the dialogue to build in any meaningful way, or express the character's personalities, leaving both factors unremarkable. I didn't buy a 12 year old giving Tom complicated, experience-driven relationship advice. I also didn't buy the intrusive, "meanwhile, in the lair of the super-villain" voice-over narrations, squirting exposition in my ear at inappropriate times.
And what's with these two?
The narrator tells us that Tom's skewed view of love comes from "a fatal misunderstanding of the movie 'The Graduate' as a child". First, as a rule, never mention better movies than your movie in your movie. Secondly, what if I've never seen 'The Graduate'?
I'm shit out of luck?
Days of Summer () - IMDb
Tom writes greeting cards for a living and can't figure out how to ask Summer on a date. Greeting cards exist for the soul purpose of getting people laid. See the dissonance here? For that matter, why does he even bother with Summer? She's a brat, and a nympho, and the moment Tom learns about her past "experience", he should have been prepared for disappointment.
This movie doesn't earn the right to tell its story out of order. To do so, the story needs to be something profound and original and benefiting. As it stands it's just a distraction from the lack of a concrete topic, and the shuffling of time is used here as a cheap mechanic for the film to set up a series of contrived "reveals" to flatter us with flashy cleverness.
It's the name of the movie! Now the word "summer" means TWO things! So a few diamonds form as this brownie bakes in the oven. A scene involving Tom and Summer skipping through an IKEA store complaining that "all the sinks are broken" is particularly hilarious.
When Tom finally makes headway with Summer, he struts out into the street in front of her building like Fred Astaire as various passerby break into spontaneous song and dance. Tom's meltdown in the boardroom is poignant and powerful. The film delicately handles the horrible "catch" of relationships: The final sequence between the two lovers, set in an important park with an important view, is profound and bitter in its pitiless clarification of broken love, even if it is the love between retards.
Summer's explanation for her betrayal doesn't really clarify anything maybe that we gave women the vote so that they could "date for dinner" but it does showcases the profound effect the two had on each other.
Fate, as it adheres to cause and effect, has a brutal way of wearing down the romantic soul with cruel reality.
