'Garden State' (2004)
Calling Zach Braff's directorial debut an outright "bad movie" may be a bit harsh. But its reliance on the Braff's love of the Shins as a critical plot point makes it difficult for the film to stand on its own, and the writer/director/star's weak rehashing of The Graduate's twentysomething angst isn't doing itself any favors by throwing in a Paul Simon tune ("The Only Living Boy in New York"). Which means that if one were to separate the music (including tunes from Coldplay, Iron & Wine and Nick Drake) from the movie, you'd only be left with a series of unconnected dots. Oh, and one Grammy Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack.
