ai­dan bloom is your typ­i­cal guy. he’s 35, mar­ried with kids and try­ing to make it in hol­ly­wood. but life isn’t will­ing to play nice with him and ai­dan finds him­self ask­ing god when it’ll be his chance to hit the jack­pot in life. if you were ex­pect­ing him to win the lotto and go on a wild spend­ing spree, you’re watch­ing the wrong flick. in­stead, ai­dan goes on a se­ries of ad­ven­tures with his trou­bled fa­ther, a brother who’s not all there in the head and his fam­ily, who find the in­ner peace and love that they so desperately crave. will this be the turn­ing point in ai­dan’s life? per­haps… Why it’s hot: like so many other co­me­di­ans, zach braff (jd from med­i­cal com­edy scrubs, 2001-2010) is an ac­quired taste and if you don’t like him, you don’t like him. this film will change your mind on that – it’s heart­warm­ing, it’s funny, it’s dra­matic, it tugs on your heart­strings and it’ll give you a new way to look at things. wish i was here is ev­ery­thing the mod­ern fam­ily needs in a feel-good movie that’ll en­ter­tain young and old. zach shows off a new side to his com­edy that we never knew ex­isted and his co-stars give the movie the per­fect plat­form to de­liver. there’s mandy patinkin (saul in home­land, 2011-cur­rent), kate hud­son (cas­san­dra july in glee, 2012-2013), jim par­sons (shel­don cooper in the big bang the­ory, 2007-cur­rent) and loads more. watch this movie and we guar­an­tee that you’ll be over­come with all sorts of fuzzy feel­ings and have a smile on your dial.
