500 Days of Summer – 3.5 stars

500 Days of Summer.  A romantic comedy that takes another whack at the rom-com dreck machine (1567 Dresses, He’s Just Not That Into You, Maid of Honor, etc . . . ).  Great chemistry between an earnest Joseph Gordon-Levitt and an aloof Zooey Deschanel, who at times tests your ability to stomach the quirky, bohemian modern girl but still captivates.  Still, it is hard to dislike a film that can carry a Hall and Oates dance number in the middle of an L.A. park.  Also, I did notice that the office where Gordon-Levitt is interviewing in the last scene is Jack Nicholson’s office in Wolf.  Great office.
