Displaying a self-confidence that would put Muhammad Ali to shame, Kazan has cast herself as her real-life boyfriend's fantasy woman.

Ruby Sparks means well, but I believe it is an awful film, an unintentionally uncomfortable experience I'd like to forget about as soon as possible.

Rather than being Stranger Than Fiction with insightful gender politics, Ruby Sparks is more a hipster Weird Science.

Assaults the audience with such an unending charm offensive that what initially seems cute becomes cutesy, and what feels quirky descends into twee.

It's refreshing to see a premise such as this one treated to a nonsmarmy telling. But the picture, intelligent but mild, has more of a 10-volt hum than a true spark.

"Ruby Sparks" is a closed system that gradually turns in on itself. There isn't enough of someone else.

On paper, it sounds like a delight. In practice, though, Ruby Sparks -- which boasts only the occasional twinkle -- mostly just fizzles.

Never gets beyond feeling like a Stephen King fable about the dangers of getting too invested in your own writing.

Ruby Sparks diminishes its own stakes from the start, and nothing that happens in this breezy, ineffective rom-com does anything to improve that.

The problem in the screenplay is its lack of imagination, oddly enough, which is demonstrated by repetition of the central idea - instead of a satisfactory development of it

So it falls short - which makes it an especially frustrating experience. There's so much to like and so many potentially interesting ideas to embrace that I really wanted it to work.

I think the problem with Ruby Sparks is that it's never really sure what the rules are.

I wanted to send everyone in Ruby Sparks to a treatment centre for the terminally winsome. A de-schmaltz clinic.

Star Zoe Kazan's...written a hell of a role for herself, a showcase for every type of mood and emotion, but the directors haven't succeeded in making the tale take on a life of its own

A tepidly humored cerebral gimmicky fantasy film.

[B]arely distinguishable from other similar tales of young men who need a schooling in the realities of not being a selfish jerk, with one glaring exception: ... this one is all about teaching Calvin that -- spoiler! -- women are people.

far too derivative of other angsty independent romances that it failed to keep my attention
