Great Movie with an Amazing Cast
27 May 2014 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I for for one really enjoyed this movie. I saw it at a screening in Toronto. If you were a fan of Garden State you will love this movie.

The cast was superb! Especially Joey King (Grace) and Mandy Patinkin (Gabe). They literally stole the movie. There was not a single bad actor in the movie. Small cameos by James Avery and Donald Faison added great comic relief. After the movie we had a Q&A with Zach Braff and he informed us that this was James Avery's last role on film and left us all with hilarious little improv line. It was very funny.

I highly recommend this movie for anyone who is a Zach Braff fan and wants to go out for a movie that is an emotional roller coaster with great visuals, solid acting and of course the great comedy of Zach Braff.

The movie had great comedy and very real story line.

A+++++
