So I just discovered this “Nice Guy TM” meme. Love it.
omfg that’s actually a really good character to pick
like the scene where he’s on a blind date and the girl says “so basically she was completely honest with u the whole time….how is this her problem????”
Perfection. I really love that people can stop blaming Summer and calling her an MPDG when the whole point of the film was that she was her own person and Tom didn’t want to see that. He would have rather built her up as this impossible person in his head and then get mad when her true self couldn’t live up to it. Sure she was fun and quirky and loveable, but she was also her own person with her own desires and Tom never saw that, so he lost her and then blamed her for it.
It’s a really amazing movie and I’m hoping people can see that. Tom is not the hero of this film. He’s the Nice Guy TM.
