Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The irreverent comedy Everything's Gone Green scores by taking a fresh look at greed, slacker values, and current cultural phenomena. There's the lottery, the "mom-and-pop" marijuana industry, and the ubiquitous movie-making taking place on almost every street corner in Vancouver, for starters. Strong performances, shrewd use of contemporary music, and a realistic approach to even the most absurd comic moments help the movie stand out. Ryan's journey is brightened by assorted oddball characters, some strikingly funny situations, and a lot of inevitable soul-searching.

One particularly nice aspect of Everything's Gone Green is that Vancouver, Canada -- which in recent years has so often been asked to stand in for U.S. cities -- gets to play itself for a change. The lovely, vibrant town actually becomes a character in this sensitive, likeable romantic comedy.
