Any man who's ever been dumped by a girl or suffered a broken heart at the hands of a she-devil should relate quite heavily to the innovatively presented rom-com (500) Days Of Summer. With its nonlinear structure and quirky humor, director Marc Webb's energetic and perfectly sentimental tale of doomed love flips the guy/girl dynamic to make Joseph Gordon-Levitt's hopelessly romantic character the victim and Zooey Deschanel's aloof one an inadvertent ice queen.

Though seeing Gordon-Levitt get put through the emotional ringer can be tough for equally scorned dudes, (500) Days Of Summer earns its cringes and tears every step of the way.
