Ruby Sparks, though it often tries the viewer's patience (sometimes intentionally, sometimes not), examines the dramatic fallout of this clash in an impressive way.

Ruby Sparks is an innocuous, forgettable place-holder: it contains appealing performers and characters pleasant to watch.

Ruby Sparks will make you want to fall in love the right way.

RUBY SPARKS is a romantic comedy with a subversive tone behind its concept and some sharp satirical bite.

Watch the sparks fly with a new timeless classic, Ruby Sparks.

Ruby Sparks gets its spark from Kazan. After being mostly a bit player in a handful of films, the 29-year-old actress shows she is more than capable of stepping into lead roles. She's also not too bad at screenwriting as well.

All in all, this is just an intelligent, creative, well-acted gem.

Ruby Sparks zips along thanks to quality writing and odd-ball performances - Kazan, in particular, looks set for a very bright future indeed.

Screenwriter/actress Zoe Kazan shows signs of potential, but she fluffs up Sparks instead of examining its darker elements.

Ruby Sparks is a snazzy and thought-provoking debut.

It doesn't not work-there's too much genuinely great stuff going on.

Although the movie stumbles at the ending -- it becomes both disappointingly predictable and puzzling in the final few frames -- it is such an appealingly uncommon rom-com that is still worth meeting Ruby Sparks.

Ruby Sparks is a good little cute 'n' clever (dare I call it... quirky?) movie, and it's possible that the degree to which I'm frustrated with it is solely due to the fact that I hoped for something different, something more.

"Ruby Sparks" is a uniquely palatable concoction - part Woody Allen, part John Hughes, part Rod Serling.

There's no shortage of interesting ideas submerged here. Too bad it's such a slog to sit through.

Ruby Sparks is an honest, entertaining, and insightful picture that, despite a very 'filmy' happy ending, offers up an amusingly frank deconstruction of the 'dream girl' idea that pervades much modern fiction.

Having established this whimsical dream-come-true situation, the film now sneakily subverts it.

Kazan the writer asks a lot of Kazan the actress, putting her through an emotional wringer while also calling upon her to convincingly traverse a path from happiness to humiliation without missing a beat. She seldom disappoints.

It's a refreshing take for a rom-com, and when you add in a healthy dose of humour, it makes for an enjoyable and intelligent treat.

The hit and miss nature of Ruby Sparks is a surprise given it's from the same duo that brought us Little Miss Sunshine.
