At first, the movie may seem trite. Summer, a girl with a slight charm and big eyes who knows the lyrics to The Smiths' most popular song, falls in love with the protagonist Tom at first sight. But in fact, the thesis voiced by the young man's cynical younger sister hides the truth: "Just because some cute girl likes the same weird shit you do, doesn't make her your soul mate."

500 Days of Summer actually condemns stereotypical romances. Tom's love for Summer is not just superficial, but even borders on objectification. He perceives her as a projection of his own desires.

The plot is a bit outdated and doesn't really show anything new (two people are forced to be together and eventually fall in love), but somehow the movie looks timeless. Each actor brings a lot of sincerity and humor to their roles.

While it's hard to ignore the disregard for journalistic ethics in the context of this movie, it doesn't make How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days any less charming. The plot centers on a journalist for a women's magazine who is working on a new article about the "factors that make men leave women." To do this, she herself has to become "hysterical and hyper-in love," and a random handsome man becomes her victim.

And who better to play the inveterate bachelor PR man than Matthew McConaughey. The role of the main character was played by Kate Hudson. There are plenty of clichés in the movie, but they are nothing compared to sincerity, humor, and romance.
