Garden State Reviews

Page 1 of 10


Although flawed, Garden State is a good-natured film whose very likeability leaves you willing to overlook its shortcomings.

It's no longer a generational alarm clock, but for those who've seen loved ones stumble through complacent fogs of Paxil, Zoloft and the like, "Garden State" still warns that "stability" doesn't mean a numbness to anything not emotionally even-keeled.

Braff, who also wrote and directs, tells this story with great flair, lots of subtlety and a wonderfully paced set of revelations that come to us just as they might in real life.

While Braff's script may suffer from long-windedness, his direction -- of both cast and camera -- is so confident that this debut could well mark the start of a major career.

Both funny and touching, this is a small film that deserves to be seen by a wider audience.

The film manages to be delightfully offbeat while simultaneously providing weight and depth.

[Offers] audiences a realistic coming-of-age tale that isn't bogged down by Hollywood clichés, but rather lifted higher by an incredible cast and an even more remarkable directorial debut by from Zach Braff.

It's the kind of small treasure that drops in theaters once or twice a year.

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.
