2019 marks the 10th year anniversary of one of the most celebrated romantic-comedy films in Hollywood, (500) Days of Summer. It has been a decade since its release and we still can’t get over on how good and realistic the story is.
In case you need a quick refresher, the movie follows Tom Hansen (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a greeting card writer and a hopeless romantic, and Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel), a girl who doesn’t believe that true love exists. It’s not your ordinary rom-com film. It’s a “twisted journey of highs and lows that doesn’t quite go where we think it will.”
If you’re planning to rewatch the film today and celebrate its 10th year, here are five of the most memorable scenes from (500) Days of Summer that you need to check out:
1. The “Summer effect”
Remember the first time Tom and his officemates meet Summer? And how the narrator introduces her in the film? The narrator describes her as a woman with an average height and weight, and a slightly above average shoe size. It looks like Summer is an ordinary girl, except she wasn’t. Every apartment she rented was offered at an average rate of 9.2% below market value and her commute to work averaged 18.4 double-takes per day.
2. The IKEA scene
Tom and Summer’s date to a furniture shop is full of great moments. This is one of the scenes that will definitely put a smile on your face. Rewatching this scene proves that Summer isn’t the villain because this is where she tells Tom she wants to keep everything casual and she doesn’t want a relationship. Tom agrees, but of course, he wants more.
3. Expectations vs. reality
Before the funny memes on Facebook, the first usage of Expectation Vs. Reality is from this scene of (500) Days of Summer. Although the Expectation vs. Reality posts that we’re seeing online are mostly funny. this one is kinda heartbreaking. We’re sad for Tom, but we still believe that Summer is not a villain in this film.
4. Day 488
Day 488 is the toughest and most important scene to watch in the film. This is where Tom and Summer meet after she got married. It allows Tom to ask Summer what happened and it’s where he really got to move on to the next season of love.
5. Meeting Autumn
If you think the film will end with Summer and Tom’s bench talk, you’re wrong. Just like the seasons, after summer, there’s always an autumn. Aww.
Happy anniversary, (500) Days of Summer! <3
