SO MUCH ZOOEY DESCHANEL. JOY.

SO MUCH ZOOEY DESCHANEL. JOY.

Review: When I realized that the soundtrack for 500 Days of Summer had come out yesterday, I started giggling insanely with glee.

When Tom, a hapless greeting card copywriter and hopeless romantic, is blindsided after his girlfriend Summer dumps him, he shifts back and forth through various periods of their 500 days “together” to try to figure out where things went wrong. His reflections ultimately lead him to finally rediscover his true passions in life.” Now, that sounds like the description for a movie titled “She’s Just Not That Into You”, but so much better!
