Christmas Gift Idea: (500) Days of Summer

This summer’s excellent romantic-comedy hit arrives on DVD today just in time for Christmas. Distributed by Fox Searchlight, it’s one of the most original rom-com’s in recent memories, and one of the years best films.

(500) Days of Summer features a great soundtrack, and is hugely quotable and highly enjoyable. It’s an honest, believable look at relationships, that tells us that while Summer’s fun, sometimes we’ve got to move on to what comes next. We reviewed the film when it opened in theatres on July 17th, our consensus was:

“(500) Days of Summer boasts a style of storytelling that is a lot of fun to watch. The acting, music, and story are all very good. A unique movie that is really worth seeing this Summer. ***3/4 (Out of 4)”

The DVD includes commentary with director Marc Webb, writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, and star Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and “Lost Days of Summer” deleted and extended scenes.
