Critic Reviews of "Wish I Was Here"NPRJuly 18, 2014
Wish I Was Here's philosophical scope never gets much bigger than the slip of paper inside a fortune cookie.Salon.comJuly 18, 2014
It is sometimes maudlin, sometimes trivial and sometimes very moving, but never less than achingly sincere.Denver PostJuly 18, 2014
The fruits of writer-director Zach Braff's Kickstarter are here for the general public, and they're at once vibrantly weird, beautiful and thoughtful.Christian Science MonitorJuly 18, 2014
Braff plays Aidan with easygoing exasperation and Hudson is better than I've seen her since Almost Famous.San Francisco ChronicleJuly 18, 2014
Wish I Was Here is a funny, touching movie that features one of Kate Hudson's best performances and a curmudgeonly good one from Mandy Patinkin.Newark Star-LedgerJuly 18, 2014
"Wish I Was Here" is a welcome, if belated, second chapter in a filmmaker's career. I just hope we don't have to wait another 10 years to see what he thinks about life as a forty-something ...Bust MagazineOctober 26, 2016
All in all, a good summer movie.The Film StageJune 21, 2016
Unfortunately, the film spends so much time trying to define itself, we're never allowed to immerse ourselves into the experience.FlavorwireJune 18, 2016
Just about all of the "compromises" that Braff says he'd have been forced to make (and I'm slightly perturbed to say this, being a fairly consistent support-the-artist type) would have made 'Wish I Was Here' a better film.CinemixtapeApril 17, 2016
The film creatively runs aground and never jostles itself loose, content to wallow in the kind of misery that "Garden State" rebuffed.Movie HabitJuly 31, 2015
Braff directs a Soggy sitcom of a movieMovie TalkFebruary 01, 2015
Braff clearly wants us to find his hapless hero's travails funny and affecting. Instead, they come across as self-indulgent navel-gazing.
