Uh oh.... do we have another tragic Bill Murray-esque actor in Zach Braff? Well, maybe not, seeing as Bill Murray has shown much range over his career. Braff, on the other hand, continued to disappoint me again. The highly overrated Garden Uh oh.... do we have another tragic Bill Murray-esque actor in Zach Braff? Well, maybe not, seeing as Bill Murray has shown much range over his career. Braff, on the other hand, continued to disappoint me again. The highly overrated Garden State left me wanting to inject Braff with a shot of personality. He tried too hard to make a movie that was obviously independant and underplayed. His performance was too lackluster, just for the sake of being lackluster. The Last Kiss was my hope for a star-turning performance. Unfortunately, I was beyond disappointed. There is a story here, there really is. Unfortunately, I was so pre-occuppied by the dull performances, especially that of Braff. It reminded me of the performance by Bill Murray in Broken Flowers. The stares that Braff gives the camera time and time again are all the same. He needs to act in layers, and leave the one note performances behind. I have faith he can do it..... He showed some awesome talent in Scrubs, where a one-note performance would have gotten him nowhere. Please Zacharay, don't try too hard!! Expand

No, it's not Garden State. It wasn't directed by Zak Braff, It wasn't written by Zak Braff, it stars Zak Braff and that's it. It is, in fact, a remake of an Italian comedy that was a quick paced ensemble piece that No, it's not Garden State. It wasn't directed by Zak Braff, It wasn't written by Zak Braff, it stars Zak Braff and that's it. It is, in fact, a remake of an Italian comedy that was a quick paced ensemble piece that emphasized the comedy about four friends on the brink of 30 and becoming "grown ups". In this Americanized version, the pace is slowed down considerably and the emphasis is on the angst instead of the laughs. Its not Garden State, but it's an o.k. remake of a much better original. So what else is new in Hollywood? Expand
