...una perfecta fábula, una agridulce historia de amor, un canto a la madurez como necesidad, al amor como motor y necesidad, y a la definición de lo que somos...
| Original Score: 4.5/5
While Garden State likely won't stand up over time beside the films it emulates, it certainly can't be faulted for trying. An impressive debut.
Smart, perceptive and funny filmmaking from a genuine talent in Zach Braff.
| Original Score: 82/100
'the biggest problems lie in the simplistic nature of the characters and the reliance on quirkiness, rather than genuine, realistic emotion, to connect with its audience.'
Se todo jovem ator tivesse uma estréia tão promissora na direção de longas, o Cinema norte-americano estaria bem melhor.
| Original Score: 4/5
This is a terrific debut film by Braff, reminiscent of the classic movie, 'The Graduate.'
| Original Score: A
Too often, compelling moments are countered by meandering edits that lead the story to a sweet but hardly profound conclusion.
| Original Score: 2/4
An absolute must see, and most of you who see it will love it enough to pick this DVD up for your collection.
...a delightfully quirky look at finding oneself and accepting who and what we are and what life is all about.
| Original Score: 7/10
What makes Garden State such a pleasure to watch is its great sensitivity to human detail.
| Original Score: 8/10
A witty, wacky, and wonderful trip through the minefield of being twenty-something.
This is all relatively standard stuff at first glance, but much of the zing of the movie comes from the wobbly curveballs that Braff throws at the formula.
Garden State is nothing short of genius, as moving as it is hilarious.
| Original Score: 95/100
Braff views these people sincerely. More importantly, he locates their humanity.
Every generation needs its own version of The Graduate, and this one stars Zack Braff
| Original Score: B-
Peter Saarsgard's role in Garden State is one of the main reasons to see the film.
For a director who acts in almost every frame of his own movie, [Braff] acquits himself well.
The stand-out performance belongs to Natalie Portman -- the screen literally lights up whenever she's around.
It's dispiriting to see such a pandering and clunkily written picture get so puffed up with a belief in its own integrity; the movie has a Shins CD where its heart should be.
| Original Score: D
'Garden State' of Grace
