10. Ruby Sparks
Calvin has two main problems in his life. While he is a successful novelist, he hasn’t published a novel in years and he has writer’s block. His other problem is that he can never seem to meet the right woman. He’s worried that any woman he meets will just like the idealized version of him and she won’t like him for who he really is. Calvin finds a solution to both of these problems when he writes a story where he is the main character and he meets a girl named Ruby Sparks, who is his ideal woman. Then one morning Calvin wakes up to find that, somehow, Ruby has popped into existence as a flesh and blood, self-aware human. Yes, the premise is slightly more ridiculous than Weird Science, but Ruby Sparks is fun and quirky with enough thoughtful prospective on relationships that anyone can enjoy it, as long as nagging plot holes don’t drive you insane. Like how does a girl created out of nothing get something like a social security card to register for classes?
