An offbeat romantic comedy about a woman who doesn't believe true love exists, and the young man who falls for her. He's Tom, from New Jersey, working in L.A. writing greeting cards even through he's an architect by training. She's Summer from Michigan. Day one is her first day in Tom's office. We jump back and forth in time: by day 67, they've become an item when she decides to put aside the lovemaking and just be friends.

Director Will Gluck Producers Martin Shafer Liz Glotzer Jerry Zucker Janet Zucker Starring Mila Kunis Justin Timberlake 4. In the genre of rom com you always have the two main characters being a male and female who are love interests for one or the other. These characters then shape the storyline of the film. It always starts of calm then something occurs which disrupts the equilibrium. By the end of the film everything is back to being calm and the damaged equilibrium has been solved. The usual disruption in a rom com film is normally and argument or a break up which is resolved by making up and getting back together. Its normally the girl who is left heat broken but when it comes to 500 days of summer they break the convention by making the male character the one that is heartbroken in the end. 5. When it comes to starts in the rom com genre you would usually see the same actor or actress in these type of films. This theory is used to sell the film through the actors or actress starring in it rather than the actual film. They would choose an actor or actress for how popular they are and how well they appeal to a wider audience. This can be shown in the rom com film, LOL which stars Miley Cyrus. She is seen as a big star for the target audience of young teenagers for this film so they audience will be able to relate to her better. As well as this, they would get a wider audience going to see the film just because she is it in not because they have an interest in the storyline. Another rom com film that this theory has been used in is new film, That Awkward Moment. This film stars actor Zac Efron who isnt normally seen as the rom com type actor but the director of this film knows that the audience would want to see it just because he stars in it. 6. This part of the trailer shows the two main characters together. The way that they are lay close and smiling at each other shows the audience that this is a romance film. This part of the Friends with Benefits trailer shows a sense of comedy. This can be seen through the two main characters of the film. The audience will be able to tell this is part of the comedy genre as her drawing on his face whilst he is asleep is seen as something funny. </p>
