OCTOBER 30TH, 2012

RUBY SPARKS // Everything an Indie romantic comedy should be, Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan make the perfect on-screen (and off-screen) quirky couple. With grace and poise, “Ruby Sparks” is able to transcend its genre and its “make believe” nature and becomes a reality worth investing in emotionally. Filled with sincere relationships, sincere performances from everyone involved, and a thoughtful and endearing plot that progresses perfectly, “Ruby Sparks” takes a step away from films like “500 Days of Summer” and “Beginners” and creates a world all its own.

SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED // Aubrey Plaza proves she can carry a film with her quirky nature, while Jake Johnson proves that he should be in more films. All the performances are matched perfectly by a “heartfelt story” which brings some well paced surprises. Even though there are several plot holes left unanswered, the film still carries on nicely as a whole.

THE CAMPAIGN // The Campaign could use a little less Zach Galifianakis and a lot more Will Ferrell. With the latter carrying most of the overly funny portions of the film, Galifianakis’ character comes on a bit too strong. However, the comedy does eventually churn out an effective political satire with some great issues brought to light in the most humorous of ways. With these two men playing off each other wonderfully and some great cameos from John Lithgow and Dan Ackroyd, The Campaign levels out on average, proving not to be Ferrell’s best venture, but worth the time spent.
