Wish I Was Here is the movie that Zach Braff partially funded from Kickstarter. He wanted to do that so he could make the movie he wanted – and it’s several steps up from his decent but not quite wonderful Garden State. This is a movie about a man who has wake up and realise that his dream – which he has followed most of his life – needs to be adjusted to the realities of his life with his family. It’s another coming of age tale about a man-child. It’s also pretty good.
It’s not bad enough that Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson showed a lack of chemistry in How to Lose a Guy in 10 days. Oh, no. They had to team up again to provide us with a Romancing the Stone wannabe that lacks romance, adventure and intelligence.
