And I have a theory that Samantha is basically a manic pixie. Or rather, she was intended to be, and the conflict comes from her refusing to be one. It reminds me of Ruby Sparks in the way it develops. A girl is created for the express purpose of making the man happy, and when through interaction, she grows beyond the bounds of what he wants from her, he gets pissy and she eventually leaves. I have more thoughts but I can't articulate them yet. How did you guys feel about it?
