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.

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.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)

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.
