I just saw my favorite movie of 2009 (at least through August). It was the charming, funny, ever so creative and slightly painful (emotionally, that is) movie 500 Days of Summer.
The writing is great, the music is wonderful, and the story is probably all too familiar for every one of us.
Mister loved it too. There are no buildings blowing up, but hopefully the man in your life can handle that for two hours. If not, tell him to suck it up and see it anyway.
