Viewing Notes

I thought this was a well-written romantic drama/comedy about the falling into and out of love. Though Zooey Deschenal plays the heartbreaker here, I didn’t view her as overtly mean or evil, though some of her actions had painful consequences for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character.

Really, the shoe could easily be on the other foot (and in many movies it typically is).

I think many people can identify with both of the characters here: knowing for certain that person is “the one”; while on the other hand, that person doesn’t share the same sentiment.
