* ComingOfAgeStory: The movie is in many ways a story of Tom growing from being a young adult who is in many ways an adolescent (working a job he has no passion for, being naive about how love and relationships work, and even his style of dress) to a (hopefully) more functioning and happier adult who isn't as focused on finding love.

Added DiffLines:

* CerebusCallBack: Done the other way round. Tom finds a card saying "I love us" and looks at it sadly. It then flashes back to inform us that he wrote the card inspired by his relationship with Summer.


Added DiffLines:

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: When Tom at least tries to get over his break-up with Summer, he now wears his hair slicked back. Summer's hair is worn up when she sees Tom after their break-up. [[spoiler: After she's been married]] she appears with her hair slightly longer and curled, and the fringe swept to the side.


Added DiffLines:

* RedHerring: In a sense. One of the opening shots shows Summer with a ring on her finger. [[spoiler: It turns out not to belong to Tom but another man]].


Added DiffLines:

* TroublingUnchildlikeBehaviour: Tom is notably creeped out that Rachel, who is a preteen, has knowledge of how relationships work (not to mention PMS).

* NeverTrustATrailer: The title and trailer imply that the movie is about the 500 days in the relationship between Summer and Tom. [[spoiler:In fact, Summer breaks up with Tom on Day 288, and the remaining days document his attempts to get over her.]] Furthermore, most viewers of the trailer expected Summer to be a straight portrayal of a ManicPixieDreamGirl -- considering she's played by ZooeyDeschanel and all -- instead of a {{Deconstruction}} of the trope.
