Our generation's "The Graduate." That is, if "The Graduate" was twee, irritating and starred that jerk from "Scrubs." Made The Shins rich.

I love this movie, one of my favs Zach Braff did great for his first film ( writing and directing). It's quirky, fun, sometimes sad and seems pretty realistic. And the soundtrack is pretty awesome too.

Dreadful cookie cutter "indie" film. Portman wears big ear phones and likes lots of 'indie' music. I like low key movies but I didn't like Braff and I didn't like Portman. The writing was obvious and boring.

A fantastic coming-of-age movie that is at once funny and intellectual. Great acting by Zack Braff and Natalie Portman
