500 Days of Summer
Saw it last night. Good/fun/light... but overly precious. (I liked the musical dance sequence and hated the split screen ones). Very much like Stranger than Fiction, but instead of a grumpy uncool lead character like Ferrell to balance out the conceits, we get overwhelming Wes Anderson cuteness all around. Speaking of the characters, despite an overwhelming appreciation for JGL, it was not enough to overcome the kinda dead performance of everybody else, including his love interest Zooey Deschanel.
