Elizabethtown-A critique with very mild spoilers

Did you like Garden State? Then you'll love Elizabethtown, provided of course, you're not offended by the direct ripoff of everything that made GS great, just changed enough to call it a new movie.

Seriously, it's Garden State Mad Libs!

It's a story about a man who is having problems at his job as an actor/waiter a shoe developer who travels east to a less sophisticated environment after finding out his mother father has died. While there, he redevelops a close relationship with a high school friend his cousin. Along the way, he meets a quirky and optimistic girl who helps him learn lessons about himself, and ultimately, life. Music plays a large role in the fabric of the movie.

Don't misunderstand me, I liked the movie. I was just a little irritated that a movie I loved for being fresh and original is being copied for commercial effect.
