One of the only romantic comedies released last year to have any charm whatsoever, (500) Days of Summer recounts the relationship of its star-crossed lovers, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel, out of chronological order, flitting between the highs and lows of their 500 days together.

At times it risks being too cutesy-quirky, but it's more sincere than the competition. Only the lack of chemistry between its two stars stops it being the 21st-century Annie Hall it wants to be.
