(Newser) – First Veronica Mars, now Zach Braff's Wish I Was Here: Another indie movie has been successfully funded by Kickstarter. Braff raised his goal of $2 million in just three days, according to the Hollywood Reporter, and funding will continue for 26 days. (As of this writing, Braff has raised more than $2.1 million.) Predictably, not everyone is happy with the trendy new method of rich and famous people using Kickstarter to fund their projects. Sample headline from the Atlantic Wire: "Zach Braff Will Get His Dirty Kickstarter Money."

Writes Connor Simpson, "So there you have it. 28,000 people are paying Zach Braff to make the most Braff-ian movie he possibly can ... so they can pay him again when they buy tickets at the theater to see this terrible movie."
