YMMV: Garden State
- Awesome Music: It won a Grammy. The soundtrack was the breakthrough for the then otherwise obscure indie band The Shins.
- Deader Than Disco: While quite popular at the time of its initial release, general perception soured considerably over the next ten years. Many now regard it as the textbook example of overly "quirky" indie dramedies.
- Fridge Brilliance: Sam's house is a bit of a mess, but you still wonder why there are spots all over the TV, until you realize that Tetembe was dusting for fingerprints moments earlier.
- It's Popular, Now It Sucks: How many people nowadays will admit they loved this movie when it first came out? Not many. But they did.
