Club "(500) DAYS is like a mood ring cued to the ups, downs, and confusions of modern love....[The film is] not just bitter or sweet but everything in between." -- Grade: AEntertainment Weekly 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he sublimely smart-sexy-joyful-sad (500) DAYS OF SUMMER hits you like a blast of pure romantic oxygen.

"[T]he animation sequences that illustrate the instructional Guide itself are clever."USA Today "[I]t's a hugely welcome experience: witty, ingenious and sharp as razors."Uncut "[The] filmmaking style is unrushed and -- for a film stuffed with special effects -- not overly busy....[The] narrative bagginess is partly what makes the film feel true to Adams, if not in precise letter then certainly in mellow spirit."New York Times "[A] movie that spills over with visual gags, puppet monsters and a digital John Malkovich....The script by Karey Kirkpatrick and Adams himself delivers the goods in inspired lunacy."Rolling Stone "[A] nutty, fitfully charming production, with its 'Pee-Wee's Playhouse' visual aesthetic, androidish pacing, and idiot-proof overdelight in itself..."Entertainment Weekly "Jennings crams the animations that illustrate the Guide entries with droll sight gags."Sight and Sound0.2963558
