An Irish-set comedy-drama, Turning Green is not particularly comic or compellingly dramatic.

Turning Green is, if nothing else, the world's loneliest teen sex comedy.

Both Project Greenlight runners-up, directors Michael Aimette and John G. Hofmann get the teen angst and Gaelic aesthetic right; too bad their third-act thuggery isn't just routine, but ridiculous.

Initially engaging, witty and charming, but ultimately ends up contrived and bland with an unfocused, half-baked plot.

Turning Green has been on the shelf for so long that I'm afraid this forgettable film has gone bad.

suffers from a strangely lazy narrative and a bizarre waste of notable actors

Sometimes sweet but invariably slight and old-fashioned coming-of-age tale set in 1970s Ireland.

With the help of first-time performer Donal Gallery, this mix of gangster drama and quirky comedy boasts a modest charm that should appeal to young men around same age as the 16 year old lead character, despite a lack of focus and familiar twists.

Strikes a tone that deftly mixes comedy, wistfulness and bawdiness. The finished product is something to be proud of.

Nivola makes an astounding left turn from his nice husband role in Junebug and Hutton loses himself in the sort of part fit for a Walter Hill film.

A whimsical dirty joke of a movie set in a picturesque Irish village.

It's clear that Mr. Hutton enjoyed every minute of doing gruff, gross thugishness and boorish simplicity.
