This was a good picture. Zach Braff (who wrote and directed) was fine, and all the supporting actors were wonderful, particularly Peter Sarsgaard, Natalie Portman and Ron Leibman. The ending had a little too much psychobabble and took away from the... Full review

After waiting in anticipation for Garden State to come to Austin, TX, it was everything I thought it would be. It was so refreshing to see a genuine film for once that it made me almost feel fake while watching it.... Full review

If tongue and cheek humor is your flavor than this is a great film for you. It has an unusual story that isn't really the main focus, the story sort of only serves as medium from which the charcters can interact.... Full review

I went to see this movie with my ex-girlfriend Stephanie. It was a very small theatre in Fort Lauderdale. I'm pretty sure she enjoyed the time we had there, with the exception of a small nacho comment before the film started.... Full review

Generally you don't expect a masterpiece from a first effort. You don't get one here. But you do get a very entertaining movie that is more serious than funny, and more aware of some among todays youth, 20 somethings, than Hollywood... Full review

Review by Andrew L. Urban: Filled with acutely real moments and the readily understandable complexities of life, Garden State is an intriguing and complex film from start to finish.

The movie also has A LOT of drugs and drug references although the drug scenes are not disturbing and again used casually. The movie was very funny without being stupid at all and both Braff and Portman did an terrific job at their respective roles. ... Full Review

The movie was good but the soundtrack was great. Once I finally watched the movie, about a group of college grads involved in a love triangle, I realized that the soundtrack was much better than the movie. ... Full Review

This film is great. Therefore, I like Zach Braff, that shows star and the writer/director/star of "Garden State", his first feature film. When I first saw Garden State I found it and its creator Zach Braff to be long, drawn out and pretentious. ... Full Review
