262. (500) Days of Summer at 10

September 16th, 2019

Ten years ago, Marc Webb's (500) Days of Summer was released to generally positive reviews from most people (and acute irritation from Ed). To celebrate(?) this milestone, Ed and Emily discuss the disconnect between the central performances and the movie around them, its queasy and unsuccessful attempt to make sexist jokes without being sexist, and whether it qualifies as an "elevated" romcom.

Here is Weighing the Value of Director's Cuts: Scanline, as recommended by Ed towards the end of the episode.
