There seems to be a very clear straight line from ‘Garden State’ to this. The visuals and themes presented in this mostly visual trailer echo Braff’s first effort, but take a step forward to expand upon it. The Shins song (obviously) goes a long way in setting this up as well. All that said, your mileage may vary depending on how you feel about Braff.
Hampton, Fla., had been under the legislative microscope since February, when an audit revealed 31 violations, or roughly one for every 15 of Hampton’s 477 residents.
According to the audit, the city’s Police Department, responsible for just a 1,200-foot stretch of highway, issued 12,698 speeding tickets in 2011 and 2012, raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines.
It’s unclear where all that money went, but the audit found that city employees charged $132,000 on an account at a BP convenience store located next to City Hall.
"The Police Department swelled to 19 officers," CNN said, but "many of the officers weren’t trained properly, and the audit found that some of them drove uninsured vehicles. One officer, nicknamed ‘Rambo,’ dressed in tactical gear and strapped an assault rifle across his chest — just to write tickets."
"It’s like something out of a Southern Gothic novel," Sen. Rob Bradley told Time magazine last month. “This town exists apparently just to write speeding tickets. Most people don’t understand why it exists in the first place.”
