Andrew Largeman (Zach Braff) is a semi-successful TV actor who returns home for his mother's funeral. He meets Sam (Natalie Portman), a girl who's everything Andrew isn't.
I liked Garden State, but it reminded me of Scrubs a bit (yeah, I've watched it). I like the performances from Portman and Peter Sarsgaard. As for Braff, he was good but again he reminded me of Scrubs. I thought that Garden State was a little too quirky for my tastes (this is coming from an admirer of Tim Burton and Wes Anderson). But still, I enjoyed it.
My Rating: ****
