Since this movie is largely comprised of memories there’s a certain non-linear progression of the story. He remembers in bits and pieces, some of which go together, some don’t. He also remembers some things one way and then another later, so you end up watching the same scene again and yet, this time, it’s a totally different scene. He hates her, he loves her, he cherishes her, he regrets ever meeting her.
I thought this movie was very enjoyable to watch and I liked the director Marc Webb’s approach to telling the story. I also thought it was a great, authentic flick for people who are dating and not settled down with a single partner. It felt true to the oft complex and tumultuous task of finding the ‘one’ for you. The only thing I didn’t really like about the movie was it did dwell way too long on Tom moping around and being depressed. It just wasn’t that necessary. But overall, I liked it and enjoyed watching it.
