Critic Reviews of "Ruby Sparks"New York Daily NewsJanuary 08, 2013
Sometimes it's worth surrendering to cinematic enchantments, and Ruby Sparks makes a pretty good case for its own magic.Toronto StarJanuary 08, 2013
Sure it's been done before -- man brings ideal woman to life -- but not quite like Ruby Sparks. And that sets this film up to be a smart and romantic low-key comedy that goes beyond expectations.VarietyJanuary 08, 2013
If the result feels like a Pinocchio story that spends too much time with Geppetto, or a takedown of narcissism that never breaks free of what it's critiquing, Dano nonetheless makes Calvin compelling company.Washington PostJanuary 08, 2013
Kazan winds up indulging in the very wish-fulfillment she initially sets out to deconstruct.Entertainment WeeklyJanuary 08, 2013
Ruby Sparks flirts with preciousness and has less fun with its premise than it could have, but that's because it's actually a gently touching metaphorical drama about the real essence of love.New York Magazine/VultureJanuary 08, 2013
Ruby Sparks might have been more fun if Cal were written to be expansive instead of a worrywart in the middle-aged Matthew Broderick mode.The Mary SueSeptember 20, 2016
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.CinemixtapeApril 17, 2016
"Ruby Sparks" is a uniquely palatable concoction - part Woody Allen, part John Hughes, part Rod Serling.Philadelphia WeeklyMay 03, 2015
There's no shortage of interesting ideas submerged here. Too bad it's such a slog to sit through.QuickflixNovember 25, 2013
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.EricDSnider.comJuly 17, 2013
Having established this whimsical dream-come-true situation, the film now sneakily subverts it.The Patriot LedgerMay 26, 2013
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.
