Wondering why times are missing?

(500) Days of Summer

Playing with chronology in the way that Memento and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind did, this clever romantic comedy shows us the rise and fall of a relationship between a cynical young woman (Zooey Deschanel) and a hopeful young man (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). By restructuring the timeframe and running the entire story out of traditional rom-com order, however, meet-cutes and breakups coexist in one seamless flow. In some ways, it's a subtle tweak. In others, it adds up to one terribly inventive look at the ups and downs of love. 95 minutes PG-13.
