Hi All -

Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is smitten by Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel) the first time he lays eyes on her. Unfortunately for Tom, Summer believes neither in love or romantic relationships, but Tom doggedly continues to pursue her. He finally beds her, and there is this wonderfully goofy scene as he leaves her place and he imagines everyone he meets on the street celebrates his conquest. This scene is unexpected and funny because this is a RomCom and not a musical.

(500) DAYS OF SUMMER directed by Marc Webb (’09 95 min)
