Depending on who you are and what sort of state you're in when you watch this movie, it can either seem completely average or slightly life changing, If you're already sad it might make you sadder, and then more sad and then sort of happy and then sad again. The beginning scenes perfectly capture the feeling of severe numbness and depression. It was honest and beautiful, even when it wasn't.

Garden State is a very funny and sweet indie comedy with an inspiring message about taking risks. The cast disappears into their roles completely and creates a film with so many unique visual and audio moments. First time director Braff manages to craft a comedy that works on a humor level, as well as on a human level. One of my alltime favorites.

Quirky independent comedy who's message gets lost in it's ambition to be different.

The first time director in my opinion did a decent job with the posh cinematography, hip musical background and terrific casting of Natalie Portman. Its only qualm I had was the ending and the script. Characters were likable but lack the impact and better character build-up it deserves. Some scenes were iffy and the whole point was just too plain. Entertaining in the beginning and middle but falters in the end. A few tweaks and this would have been good.

great movie over all

"Garden State" is a brilliant first step for Braff. With characters who all suffer and to a degree feel lost, the characterisation is wonderful and the bond which the audience develops is huge. We all care for Braff's main character as he begins to finally experience life, and we all associate with Sam and Large's best friend Mark (Peter Sarsgaard). All three characters have to one degree or another suffered as a result of their parents, and we can all sympathies with that combination of embarrassment and love.

The plot as well is superb in it's detail. Starting with some good laughs at the start which do dwindle in number towards the end, the story keeps us gripped and involved. Whilst it does collapse towards the end as Braff writes a conclusion containing a few too many conventions,...
