It’s an avalanche of cuteness set to the hipster-est backdrop of today’s generation with scenes that may speak the painful truth about love to some, but also gives off the feel of a contrived relationship to many. Apart from drawing us into a world where Deschanel’s big blue eyes are the centre of the universe, Marc Webb’s (500) Days of Summer takes your breath away, keeps you laughing in your seat (but I have no idea why I found humour in the scenes that were unintentionally funny), and most importantly keeps you entertained. It’s a bunch of cute people doing their cute thing, and the end result is just well, cute.
