There are many reasons to see GREENFINGERS. . . top of the list of reasons has to be its star, Clive Owen, a toothsome morsel of manflesh . . .

Greenfingers could have been such a load of garden manure, had it not been for some earthy direction, clever casting and very good writing.

I was charmed and laughed at spots, but mostly I saw points where the story needed to take a turn to keep me interested.

It's hard not to be charmed by scenes like the one in which Briggs gives his posies a little pep talk.

Owen shows once again that he's an extremely watchable actor, and the entire crew make an effortless show of navigating the script's choppy passages and, well, turning a briar patch into an Eden.

With its unforced comedy and low-key romantic subplots, it's as sweet and touching as the first morning glory of the season.

For those who appreciate low-key British comedies, Greenfingers is a passable entry -- a somewhat pleasant diversion, but nothing more.

It is, to be fair, a good idea for a movie: Green thumbs on the Green Mile.
