    I just saw the Trailer and Teaser for this. Film looks good. And it doesn't hurt that I really like the main actor and actress.

    Hope this opens wide eventually, looks really good. What's the song playing in the trailer? Is it Frou Frou? I might have to get the soundtrack to this one too.

    I saw the teaser a few months ago. The teaser was excitement, with great music over the montage. I hope the movie lives up to its preview!

    I a really looking forward to this and it is almost fresh on rottentomatoes.com

    It doesnt open in my area until 8/13. Looks like they are rolling it out slow to get good word of mouth.

    Bummer.

    It is getting good buzz on other boards that I've visited. I'll probably check it out.

    Rotten Tomatoes has it @ 96% fresh in general, and 93% from press critics. Wow! BTW, the "Garden State" blog is really cool. I suggest you check it out if you're a fan of Zach, "Scrubs", "Garden State", or any combination of the three. I'm really excited to see this on Friday. If you're not in NYC or LA (or even if you are), check out the PDF of theaters with opening dates at the top right of the blog's homepage. I'm hoping it'll be a sleeper hit, since a lot of praise is being sung about it by critics. For a first-time director, that's real good. Also, can we get the mods to change this to an Official Discussion thread?

    I was reading some of the Blog. Zach doesnt sound too far removed from his character on Scrubs.
    Hopefully Zach and the film will get some award nominations this year since Scrubs is continually ignored.
    It's funny, I remember him in Broken Hearts Club a few years back and with blonde hair too.

    I just pulled out the DVD and watched that a few nights ago. Zach did a pretty good job but he looks so much better with darker hair.

    I'll have to wait for at least another week, but at least it's going to play. I think the soundtrack comes out next Tuesday, might have to pick that one up.

    Every review I have seen is good, so this may actually be worth checking out. Plus, I am a fan of anything Natalie Portman is in.

    My review is here

    I saw it a couple weeks back and can't wait till it opens here to see it again.

    And yeah the soundtrack is amazing. Pick it up.

    Supposedly the movie is going beyond NY and LA to selected theaters this friday, so I checked the listings for Friday, and I only see one theater in NJ and its no where near me.

    I guess one theater is better then none, but it seems weird that they couldnt book "Garden State" in more then one theater in the Garden State.

    The reviews look great, and I'm excited to see this film, but I've no idea when it's going to be at a theater near me. The PDF above was useful, but didn't list my town or theater. Why is Fox spending the money to show the TV commericals for it in my area then? Boggles the mind.

    The editing of the final scene confused me, but the gist of it is what it okay, confusion and all.
