A.O. Scott Watch: 500 Days of Summer

From today’s New York Times:

500-days-of-summer-01

“But it is, all the same, a fairly pointed response to the sorry state of romantic comedy in Hollywood, which runs the gamut from gauzily implausible fantasy to blatant and fatuous dishonesty, with an occasional detour into raunchy humor. The governing commercial calculus these days seems to be that dudes want smut, ladies want weddings, and a picture (like “The Hangover,” say) that delivers both will make the audience happy and the studios rich.”

Autumn, consider this your Rom-Com call to action!
