Janus Han In Marc Webb’s anti-romantic comedy film (500) Days of Summer, Tom Hansen undermines the traditional notions of masculinity by being overly expressive in his love life through his idea of love and being a hopeless romantic. At the karaoke bar, the scene where Mckenzie brings up the subject about having a boyfriend to Summer begins to display the idea Tom has about love. When Summer mentioned not wanting one, this causes Tom to speak up because he believes to find the one the person feels it inside them, indicating that he believes in fate and that it'll lead him to his one. In society men typically don’t become fixated on this idea of fate, where they don’t rely on the feeling that determines the one for them; rather they focus more on the individuals’ qualities making them attractive. Yet Tom has this idea of love as an instant connection between two individuals, ignoring the characteristics, he begins to get caught up in this idea of love.
