YMMV: Ruby Sparks
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Suzie can come off like kind of a jerk, especially when she demands Calvin remove women's underwear that's in a drawer in his house, as well as Harry mentioning she left him once.
  • Crowning Musicof Awesome: "Can We Start Over" stands out as a particularly moving piece in an already-great score.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Of the course of the film, it becomes more and more apparent how self-absorbed and emotionally-stunted Calvin is, and how horribly he treats Ruby. And the viewer's heart breaks for him when she's gone.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • The zombie movie they watch in the park, with such deaths as a man's scalp/face being yanked off his head(and then a shot of his skinned head), and a woman having her throat ripped open with such force that her whole head falls off.
    • The climax: "You're a genius! You're a genius! You'reageniusyou'reageniusyou'reagenius-!"
