Garden State: 6 out of 10.
I couldn't wait to see this film. I have been hearing hype about it for months, about how it defines a generation and is one of the best films of 2004. I was looking forward to a well written, interesting little flick that would stick with me and bounce around in my cranium for days and days afterwards. "Garden State" left me unfulfilled and disappointed.
It's far from a bad film but it's not particularly great. It certainly doesn't live up to the hype. I kept waiting for an interesting twist or a killer scene, but it never happened. It's okay and the music is okay but considering the press Zach Braff got I expected far better.
