Garden State

Neat, typical Rushmore-esque type film. A bit gimicky with the shots. Ok music, very trendy. Zach Braff actually turns out to be a good actor, not as one-dimensional as Scrubs would have you believe. I wonder how much is acting and how much is auto-biography... next movie will tell. And Natalie Portman... if only you had first done this and never done Star Wars. Good new-england girl, not quite the typical Jersey girl. Close though.

Definitely a Dave Barry movie. Narration aspect is good, gives the movie a very book-like feel (ala Royal Tenebaums or Hitchhiker's Guide). Wacky, escalating, a bit of slapstick. Everything seems tuned to 80% though. Jeaneane Garafalo, Patrick Warburton, both could be awesome but are simply... restrained in this movie. Seriously, didn't see this movie for quite a while because of Tim Allen on the cover... he didn't get in the way of this one.

Awesome slapstick. One old movie that doesn't rely on pedestrian tongue-in-cheeck puns and asides for humor. Gotta love it. Oh man, one of the few movies that really (really) make me laugh. A plane movie... who'dve thought? Where are those other Peter Sellers movies...
