This Saturday Night Live skit from 2007 is funny, but it’s especially great when Braff, pretending to be the kind of high school kid who will actually tell you that the Garden State movie and soundtrack changed his life, tries to convince everyone that a Garden State themed prom would be perfect.

And for all you Braff fans, check out my Spotify playlist that combines the soundtracks of many Braff-related works (Scrubs, Garden State, Wish I Was Here, The Last Kiss) and other personal favorite songs that fit the cinematic wishfulness and melancholy mood of Dr. Jon Dorian and Andrew Largeman.
Also, if you want a good read, check out this great Vulture piece defending Garden State, a movie you either love or love to hate.
Wish I Was Here is released today in limited release.
