Given the choice between lobotomy or seeing (500) Days of Summer again, I would unhesitatingly choose lobotomy. I spent 90 minutes waiting to see what all the fuss was about, but nothing materialized. Just another stylistic pastiche of Amelie, with music-video vignettes cobbled together by hipsters intent on sharing their preference for things like The Smiths, Hall and Oates, and actresses whose affected lack of affect is cloying enough in holiday films featuring elf costumes, but far worse in starring roles with too much screen time. Fuck this movie.
