Wish I Was Here

I wish there was something here

Director Zach Braff's follow-up to his indie breakout hit Garden State tells the story of a man examining his life, his career and his family. Unfortunately, the plot is simply too trivial to earn your two hours.

It's another film to go in the 2014 collection of what I'm calling "findies," faux indie films from former genius directors that are - just - so - nice

Like the totally appealing findies Chef and Begin Again, it's a charmer that is meant to be a crowd pleaser. Somehow, I just expect more from these directors.

Simply put: Sometimes sincere. Never very interesting.

Award potential: None

The ten buck review: Not worth ten bucks.
