#i think what most people don’t seem to realize about this film is what an amazing commentary it is on guys like tom #who are everywhere #and who are douches despite how cute and charming they might seem #everyone around him is like dude get over it dude calm down #and he is like no she is going to be my manic pixie dream girl and it’s going to be perfect fuck you
i think it’s kind of a commentary about that but also about how literally everyone has flaws and no one is as perfect as they seem??? like jgl’s character is a dick sometimes but summer isn’t perfect either and she makes bad choices too.

((also i really love this movie))
