    After Wish I Was Here, there's nowhere to go but up.

    It's like "Old Dogs 2: Hell or High Water"

    You have to spell it right!

    I cannot even recall a bad scene from the last one. It is not that it wasn't bad; it was a disaster. It must be similar to the way people repress trauma. It had one of the worst messages of any movie I have ever seen though: being a responsible father is for suckers when you can let your wife work as you try to become an actor.

    After the ridiculous and hilariously inept mess that Wish I Was Here was, working on a conventional script within the confines of a studio will probably help him.

    Him crowd funding that movie was so tone deaf

    I don't have too much of a problem with him crowdfunding, if people want to pay to help create a Zach Braff film... sure, go ahead. But he acknowledged that he actually would have been able to secure funding, he'd just have to give up control. And he's not fuckin Malick or Scorsese, it's not like his movie was gonna cost $100 million, a version of that movie where he would have had some pushback would probably have been better than an unrestrained Zach Braff vision.

    It's more insulting that Spike Lee had to turn to crowdfunding. Really? A studio/studios were willing to back Zach Braff, but were trepidatious about Spike Lee??

    Looks like Spike Lee hasn't had a financially successful film since Inside Man, which is really sad. Garden State did well, though.

    Yeah it's sad that Charlie Kaufman can't get a movie funded

    It is fun and easy to make fun of Wish I Was Here, but never let Garden State off the hook.
