A charming disappointment that retains the elements that make the writer's novels so good without ever bending them into cinematic shape.

Everything's Gone Green is a romantic comedy/social satire that, on a modest budget, manages to be hip, charming, funny and dressed to kill.

Too many cute anecdotes prevent it from rising above the throwaway ethos the real Generation X left behind nearly a decade ago when it abruptly got over itself.

Coupland and Fox do a nimble job of incorporating seemingly tangential points that are deceptively relevant to the larger issues.

There's nothing really wrong about Everything's Gone Green, but there's nothing terribly vital about it either.

Everything's Gone Green is the second feature directed by Paul Fox, who maintains an energetic, lighthearted tone throughout the film, even when the story loses focus at its not-quite-satisfying ending.

The movie is least successful during literal-minded debates about who's corrupt and who isn't. But Mr. Coupland's screenplay of polarities also makes worthwhile stops to smell the surrealism.

Not quite the call to arms a more highly politicized new generation of kids in their 20s might have in mind, but it'll do, just about, for a Saturday night cuddled up with your DVD player.

If the picture secretly hopes to supply viewers with the kind of epiphany its characters seek, it falls short, staying instead on turf tread in many other good-hearted festival films before it. Within that arena though, it holds its own.

Appealing performances by Costanzo and Song, with comic support from Ryan's entrepreneurial parents and Ming's knife-wielding granny, guide us over the rough patches.

Those quirky atmospherics aren't enough to sustain a largely plotless film.

[Actors Costanzo] and Song make a sweet screen couple, although their charm is dwarfed by that of Vancouver itself, which is photographed as if it were New York in Woody Allen's Manhattan.

[Director] Fox's ensemble, led by Steph Song as the whale-watching cutie, exudes easy, impish charm. Vancouver plays itself, for a change, to a postcard-radiant fare-thee-well.

As tepid and profoundly unoriginal as Everything's Gone Green is, it's got a wistful, winsome Canadian-ness that might give it some shelf life.

The story -- a guy (Paulo Costanzo) who works for the lottery gets mixed up in money laundering -- is slight, but an appealing cast and lots of scenic leafery make Green feel fresh.

It's not the big picture that charms here, it's the details. More than anything, though, it's Costanzo -- a spindly Everydork who grows up not because he has to, but because he just kinda wants to.
