Wish I Was Here, Zach Braff 2014
By Ali Tenenbaum
This movie is a mess. I’d hoped it would to speak to me, as Garden State did, or at least as the music in Garden State did.The characters felt cliché and forced, the Jewish angle is overdone and Braff gets lost in trying to be relatable and deep.Maybe this is what Kickstarter gets you – a hodgepodge of actors (oh Kate Hudson, just NO), a self-discovery film that is way too personal and one big jumble of music and feelings.
It won’t offend anyone’s sensibilities, but not really worth it for you, grandma or the kids.
