500 Days of Summer

Last week, in one of our biannual outings to the movie theater, Jeremy and I saw 500 Days of Summer. It was very good. Not great, but very, very good, and I would recommend seeing it. There were parts of it that I LOVED, in capital letters, and I write this post to share one of them with you. It takes place kind of toward the middle of the movie and it's the scene set the day after the hero and heroine have defined the relationship (in other words - and I hope this isn't spoiling anything - he gets the girl):

Isn't that just how it feels? I love it!

While I was searching for that video, I found this one, a sort of companion to the movie even though it technically doesn't have anything to do with it. And although she doesn't say it in her intro, Zooey Deschanel herself is the vocalist on this cute song:
I hope you enjoy these as much as I have! And if you see the movie, or have already seen it, remember that I did the "oops, no paper so we'll have to write on your hand" thing first.

That clip kind of reminds me of Enchanted, which I looooooove. :) Do you think my anti-chick-flick spouse would like it?

I've seen this movie twice already, and I LOVE it. I've heard her song, but not seen that version of the music video, so I appreciate that!

Liz, it's not a love story, it's a story about love, and it's definitely not your typical rom-com. I think he'd like it.

I saw that and really liked it as well. I LOVED that scene after they........
I was laughing so hard. I didn't see it coming but I was very glad that it did. I also really enjoyed the music. It has a great soundtrack. And I think that Zoey and Joseph are both adorable people.

We also chose this movie for one of our ridiculously rare theatre outings (for my birthday actually) and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I laughed so hard during that dance scene, and I don't think anybody else felt as compelled by it as I did. My other favorite scene is the simultaneous "Expectation vs. Reality" segment. That was really creative, and also poignant. Plus it makes your mind work harder while watching. :)

Zooey Deschanel is incredible in all senses of the word. She is one celebrity that I have a major girl crush on! I love her band, Him and Her. I still can't believe I haven't seen this movie yet. Now I really am the only one left seeing as how you and Jeremy have gone. Yeesh!
