Even with a few corny plot points, this is a beautifully made, thoroughly involving movie that might help change the way you think about nature.
Dare to be Wild is a visual feast, but perhaps a bit too epic for this viewer.
These fairytale flourishes, a superb soundtrack and a potent environmental message are the film's finer qualities and source of its undeniable charm.
At times laugh-out-loud cheesy, it's a hard film to hate -- but a bit too nice to inspire much passion.
It's a herbaceous bore of a movie which trades in twee Oirish cliches and features a male romantic lead who has all the charisma of a shrub.
This is film in which, to confirm the Chelsea administrator's Englishness, the great Alex Macqueen is asked to do calisthenics to Rule Britannia.
The film version is pure Mills and Boon coupled with Grand Designs, even down to signs that say "20 days to Chelsea build" as the clock ticks.
There is evocative use of the scenery in Cork and Africa, doing justice to the colourful flora, but in the end, this lacks its heroine's free spirit.
The film's heart is always in the right place but Mary often seems naive to the point of imbecility and the approach to her story is relentlessly schmaltzy.
At least the gardens are, as you would expect, spectacularly beautiful.
There aren't enough supporting story-lines to work alongside the core tale of competing in the Chelsea Flower Show, which struggles to compel, and will have problems appealing to a mainstream, broad audience.
