7) Hottest Articles on BWW from Friday, Jul. 18 BWW Reviews: Zach Braff's WISH I WAS HERE is Cliche, Snuggles Into Your Heart; Opens Today in NY, LA
by Matt Tamanini - July 18, 2014

There is nothing all that original in WISH I WAS HERE, Zach Braff's new Kickstarter-funded film which sparked a minor controversy earlier this year. However, the story's familiarity doesn't distance itself from its audience, instead it serves as an opportunity for the story to snuggle its way into your heart. Themes of family, following your dreams, disappointment, and identity are, by no means, unfamiliar territory for films, especially those of the independent variety, but Braff handles these topics with such honesty and respect, that it all feels slightly revolutionary. The film's mix of humor and heart will hit the sweet spot for Braff's GARDEN STATE, SCRUBS, and even BULLETS OVER BROADWAY fans. However, I'm not completely sure that those not predisposed to liking Braff's work will appreciate the film's slightly over-saturated sentimentality. (more...)
