      Pretty Entertaining Movie

      As a Zach Braff fan, I waited a long time for a follow-up to Garden State. But this movie is nowhere as good as his previous film. It's not bad, it's just not great. I did enjoy seeing his unique sense of humor in small throw-away scenes like when he sees an empty pamphlet holder in a hospital waiting room with the label, "This pamphlet will save your life." And his cast is pretty phenomenal, especially the young Joey King who hits every emotional scene with a punch. For Scrubs fans, there is a too short scene with Donald Faison as well.

      While being an unsuccessful actor, "Aidan Bloom" is having a hard time dealing with home schooling his kids instead of pursuing his acting career. This movie is kind of a "find yourself" film that most people can relate to in one form or another. Kate Hudson shines in her role as "Sarah Bloom".

      Zach Braff is back! Nearly a decade since Garden State came out, Braff comes out with Wish I Was Here. The casting choices are perfect, the dialogue and script are wonderful, and the story is beautiful. This film relates entirely to the human condition.

      After thoroughly enjoying Garden State I had some concerns that Zach Braff could make another movie I would like as much. Wish I Was Here is a fantastic movie with a story full of heart, and plenty of laughter. I highly recommend it.

      Enjoyable film with a great soundtrack and visuals like Garden State. Some good cameos. Still, Garden State is the better of the two. But I'd recommend trying this if you are a Zach Braff/Garden State fan.

      Zach Braff follows up Garden State with this new movie. It was one of the better movies I've seen all year and very enjoyable. It was funny, and touching at the same time.

      This is a story about a dysfunctional family that finds out, in the end, that they still love each other. (Also would be considered a good 'chic flic'.
