Ruby Sparks review

Seen at a pre-release screening in Hollywood:

A feel-good rom com about a writer whose fictional character comes to life – and everything he writes about her coming true. As uncomfortable and envelope-pushing as these “rules” become, they’re believable for anyone in his shoes and plain maniacal fun.

Written and starring Zoe Kazan, who’s absolutely adorable, and her real-life boyfriend, Paul Dano, who’s made it a long way from his dorky role in The Girl Next Door. He’ll next appear in Looper, the intriguing sci-fi flick coming out in September. Also appearing: Elliott Gould (Friends), 4-time Oscar nominee, Annette Bening and a horny Antonio Banderas.

Not a perfect movie, but certainly not deserving of its negative reviews. Still, one of my favorite movies of the year by the way it made me feel and just below Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and Moonrise Kingdom.

Ruby Sparks opened in limited release last Wednesday.

I checked out Jones in West Hollywood, looking to eat some Italian food. The interior was pretty boojie, especially considering its affordable prices ($11-15 for pizza and pasta dishes). More a place to take your date with its dim lighting and intimate booths, I was totally fine having a candlelit dinner in the gay part of town with my guy friend. They have a casual room past the main room, which is where we had to sit because there weren’t any tables at 9:30p on a Tuesday. We shared a spicy sausage pasta dish and a brick-oven pizza, and they were both amazing.

With the aforementioned and good-looking waitresses, I can’t think of a single reason not to come back if I’m in the area. Great find via the highly-rated Yelp reviews.

Rating: 5 stars out of 5
