Theatrical trailer for the Zach Braff-directed Wish I Was Here arrives

1 year agoby:

Last month, the teaser trailer to Zack Braff's directorial follow-up to GARDEN STATE was revealed to the masses, and while it was a nice collection of imagery, it was little more than a Shins music video.  For those seeking a little more plot with their trailers, the theatrical variation is here to give you some dialogue, and the actual scope of the film.

You may curse while watching the film's trailer here:

Am I the only one who got a kick out of seeing J.D. and Turk reunited? That aside, Braff has assembled a lovely cast and I'm looking forward to seeing what he can deliver, knowing that he established a lot of indie movie trends with GARDEN STATE (if you want another's opinion, check out our Sundance review of the film here).

WISH I WAS HERE, which stars Zach Braff, Kate Hudson, Josh Gad, Joey King, Jim Parsons, Mandy Patinkin, and Donald Faison, will be screened in theaters July 25, 2014.

Hate to break it to you but people that like Green Day will also see it.

Zach Braff is such a d-bag. This will wind up being as horrible as Garden State, which is as bad as a movie can get. Hopefully this one isn't insulting to people with mental problems and those who struggle with medications like Garden State was.

I don't agree that Garden State is insulting to people with mental problems and those who struggle with medications. Over-medication and misdiagnosis are two very real problems in the medical community, especially in regards to mental illness. Garden State never claimed that Braff's character was magically healed after coming off his medication. Instead, the suggestion was that he never really needed the medication to begin with, especially since its shown that his father was acting as his

I'm sure this won't make a difference in your opinion of the film overall, but that one sticking point seems wrong, and poorly thought out.

When he stops taking te medication he suffers no withdrawl and is perfectly okay because he hangs out with Padme. This is insulting to those who have struggled to get off medications or even had their dosages adjusted. With his character being on lithium, he would be unable to get out of bed, have chills, sweats, vomiting, and other symptoms of withdrawl from such a powerful narcotic. This isn't even addressed in the film. It's absolute bullshit.

I certainly respect your opinion to dislike the movie, but I believe your criticism is focused on the wrong thing. Per your reply to another comment regarding the lack of realistic withdrawal symptoms Zach Braff's ("ZB") character experienced in the movie, it would appear that your main criticism is that it's not realistic. If that's your main intent then I'm sure you sorely disliked "Up" (animation not withstanding).

The meaning behind Garden State isn't, drugs are bad and should never be

The meaning behind Garden State isn't, drugs are bad and should never be utilized, but rather life has a lot to offer and to the extent you're fortunate enough to traverse the great improvisation without the necessity to "dull" the experience that would be preferred.

I'm sure my words will be of little meaning to you, but I do understand your critique (or general assessment) of ZB; however, I do believe your understanding of Garden State is both incorrect and short-sighted.

It doesn't have to be completely realistic but it is something that needs to be addressed. The way the movie plays out is the guy quits taking one of the most powerful narcotics and since he has a girl now, he is fine. It's dishonest and insulting to people who have struggled.

I used to love this movie. Then my sister had to go on medications and seeing her struggle with, in this case, just the physical alignments that come with the medication, made this movie an insult.

Lithium is not a narcotic. Not even a scheduled drug. I take an anti-depressant, but have also been hooked on intense pain killers. Pain killers, or narcotics, have withdrawals. Getting off an anti-depressant cold turkey might give you a headache, you might not be able to sleep well or feel 100%, but you aren't going to be stuck in bed. I have diagnosed mental problems (depression and anxiety) and I've also been full on addicted to pain killers. Therefore I am led to believe you have NO

You sound like the reverse hipster. Garden State is a good movie, but then it became cool to like it and it damaged the quality of the movie some. Then, in a smaller group, it became cool to hate on it. I've never met anyone who just completely didn't like Garden State or see some talent in it. Maybe your that person, but I don't think you are. I think your just a fucking troll

Completely agree with yellow basterd and taco 87. Lithium is "one of the most powerful narcotics." That is complete bullshit. Do you know what meds your sister takes? Or what her diagnosis is? I don't remember Zach's diagnoses in GS, if it was given. I think it's pretty safe to sad he had GAD, maybe anxiety, maybe ADD/ADHD. Not any if the more serious disorders. Do you realize that if your sister is schizophrenic AND bi-polar she's going to have a much harder time in general

Do you realize that if your sister is schizophrenic AND bi-polar she's going to have a much harder time in general regardless of the medication because they are more serious mental disorders? That could be what's going on with your sister, but your perceiving it as the drug's fault in GS, when really his character didn't really have serious mental health problems or disorders. Next, lithium is not a narcotic, and it's not even one of the most powerful drugs. Go to NA or the probation/parole office or any rehab place and ask how many people are there for the "powerful narcotic" lithium. Then ask about OxyContin 80's, and how people felt when those were stopped being produced where they could no longer be broken down to be snorted or shot up. Ask them about the Roxie's and the opanas and the methadone and even morphine. Ask them about those DTs (and I'm confident you don't know what that means, so it's detox). Ask them about meth. I'm 2 semesters away from my bachelors in science of addiction studies major. I've personally dealt with serious addiction. I've had friends die. Really your comment is insulting to them and me. I don't think you know anything about what your sister is diagnosed with, the medications she's on, or anything about any of that other than she's struggling with mental health problems. Unfortunately, I would probably guess your sister is schizophrenic, since it's more prominent among poorer and UNEDUCATED people. I feel sorry for her. Hopefully her problems won't turn her to substance abuse and she can deal with the shitty side effects of those anti-psychotic meds, especially for the more serious disorders.

This looks really terrific. Been waiting a long time to see Braff's next directorial effort after really hitting all of the right notes with Garden State.
