This is one of the best tracks I've listened to. You can sense how much this movie means to Zach Braff and he has a great chemistry with Natalie Portman on the track. This track is a must-listen to all Garden State fans.

Zach Braff is great on here giving out as much relevant information as he can and telling some great stories about the writing and filming.
I wish I could say the same for Portman but she seems to have decided that her job was to be a little bit snide and only ocassionally funny. I still can't figure out whether I like her or I cant stand her.The other thing she does on here is make it abundantly clear how much she likes sex, any kind, all the time, especially with strangers. There seems to be some unresolved tension between her and Zach, sexually.

Braff offers explanations for a few things that were a little confusing in the film. I was confused more than once watching it. Especially the voyeur hotel scene. Who were those people? Did the spectators all pay to watch? Why did one guy have duct tape over his mouth? Why were one couple projected or filmed?

Over all it's light and entertaining and a highly enjoyable listen. I'd planned to watch this movie a few times because I heard it was good. Im glad I finally did because it was better than expected.
