Despite the fact that this thing is tracking for a $100m+ opening weekend it seems that it isn't very good:

Disney have now sunk nearly $350m on this puppy in the US alone so it needs to perform.

I've never envisaged Franco as a leading man so I'm not surprised the perception is that he has been badly miscast.

That's not good, but I'm going to watch it anyway. I want to see Zach Braff and I need to finish my cinema members card.

<< I want to see Zach Braff>>

You mean hear him. :-)

I won't be able to get beyond either Chicken Little or JD when I hear him!

His character wasn't even in the rough cut I saw last year.

He was in Chicken Little? I guess I have to watch the movie in English some day. I own the DVD, but I've only seen it in German.

Scrubs is my favourite TV-show and JD is just great and so I hoped for a bigger role.

I'm looking forward to Oz, hope it's better than the reviews!

He was Chicken Little. Despite the movie being pretty poor I thought his vocal performance was very good - but I'm a fan (LOVE Garden State).

<<Scrubs is my favourite TV-show and JD is just great and so I hoped for a bigger role.>>

I wish Bill Lawrence hadn't tried to eek out a few more seasons (particularly the poor decision to move to ABC).

The Brendan Fraser episodes get me every time - particularly his last one. Just brilliant comedic drama. At its height it was one of the best sitcoms around - so smart.

The Brendan Fraser episodes are among the best Scrubs episodes.

I was happy that Scrubs moved to ABC, just to give the series a better ending. Season seven was a disappointment. NBC didn't want to renew Scrubs, so I think it was a good decision. Nevertheless the ninth season shouldn't have happened. It was definitely the worst. Unfortunately after season four the series fell a little bit flat, but still much more enjoyable than so many other series.

We also watch Bill Lawrence last creation "Cougar Town", which I expected to be pretty bad, but I have to admit I like it. Sure it's not a masterpiece and there are better shows, but it's entertaining. And I love the Scrubs reunions.

I haven't seen Garden State yet, but I definitely will. It got so many good reviews.

The reviews I've seen so far are mixed. RottenTomatoes has it on 60% for 5 reviews so I think it's too early to call.

I don't think this movie will struggle to find an audience.

One of the main criticisms of Alice in Wonderland was Mia Wasikowska as the lead and that did just fine!!!

I actually saw the film at a preview for DVC Members last weekend and enjoyed it quite a bit. I think the Variety review (which is mostly positive) that was linked in the first post covers the film's strengths and weaknesses fairly well. It isn't a perfect movie by any means, but it is very entertaining.

As a note, if you are interested in this film at all, do try to see it on the big screen. The film is visually very impressive and will lose quite a bit on a smaller screen. The showing I attended was in 3D and I thought the effects were used well.

From what I understand, he's in the movie early, kinda like Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion were all in there early on as farmhands. Haven't seen it yet, though.
