Wish I Was Here

Posted: Updated:

Here on Deco, we pride ourselves on bringing you the lastest, freshest movies. We also try to explain them for you that way you know what you're going into. But for "Wish I Was Here," Zach Braff's new movie, we decided to let the cast do the explaining for us.

"Wish I Was Here" is hard to describe. It's funny. It's touching. It's visually stunning.

Joey King - "The biggest Blockbuster movie no."

Josh Gad - "Heartbreaking and at the same time hysterically funny."

Joey King - "It's just such a relatable movie, and an emotional rollercoaster"

Zach Braff - "It's so hard but I would say it's about how we struggle to try and live in the moment in our lives."

The movie was created by Zach Braff.

Josh Gad - "In this particular movie he wears four hats, he's an actor, writer, producer and an actor. He does it so seemlessly that it's unbelievable to accomplish two of those things, let alone four of those things, its mind bedinging to me."

And accomplishing the impossible sometimes meant being strict.

Mandy Patinkin - "Yes he's strict, in terms of time. He makes that clock, its running, it's an independent film, you got 25 days."

Zach was even mean at times and violent.

Josh Gad - "Zach is a, he's a real prick. He's not a very nice guy. He tends to use a paddle a lot when he's not getting what he wants but like gently hits you at first so that you get where you need to go and then slowly harder and harder, until you start crying and then uses that shot in the movie otherwise he's lovely."

Yeah, yeah we're joking. Look at that face that's the face of a really nice guy.

Joey King - "He wasn't strict, he was funny and so cool."

Mindy Potinkin - "He listens like nobody listens. He's present, he's there."

Kate - "No he's not strict, when you been acting as well as you know, I think working with actors, working with directors who act is a completely different thing that working with directors who don't."

Anything made by this loving a cast has to be worth a watch.

Josh Gad - "To me the title, "Wish I Was Here" signifies living in the moment and never regretting or never leaving the world without any regrets."

Zach Braff - "The title is about wishing we could be present."

    When I first heard that the Crop Top was back in style, I walked straight into my bedroom, stood in front of the mirror, lifted my shirt, turned to the side and stuck my gut out as far as it would go.

    Mattie McDonald was one of the prettiest women I'd ever seen. She had light green eyes, dark brown hair and milky white skin. When she wafted by me, she smelled of lavender, honeysuckle and some other hypnotizing perfume I couldn't quite put my finger on. I spent a lot of my spare time daydreaming about her and not just because I wanted to know her. Ultimately, I wanted to be her.

    When I walked out of the Hong Kong airport, the heat of the city slapped me so hard across the face, it was like a woman catching her cheating husband with a long-suspected mistress.
