Coupland would need the luxury of prose to vindicate this material

Slacker comedy mixes marijuana and satire.

Gives the audience some fine eye candy, but Douglas Coupland's first foray into the realm of writing for the screen offers little else to recommend it.
| Original Score: 60/100

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

Ryan's journey to self-discovery isn't entirely credible, but Costanzo's acting chops are good enough to make you care about him despite any shortcomings in the script
| Original Score: 3/5

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.
| Original Score: 3/4

Far more pleasant than having your teeth cleaned but less memorable, Everything's Gone Green is a nice diversion that will get you thinking - about booking a flight to British Columbia.

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.

It's more clever than smart, but Paul Fox directs with the same easygoing attitude of its slacker hero...

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

Minor pleasures don't come close to compensating for a bloodless film that aims for wry but leaves you merely asking 'why?'

Everything's Gone Green, the first feature script from noted Canadian author Douglas Coupland, is the ultimate love letter to his native, beloved Vancouver.

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.
| Original Score: 3/4

[Actor] Costanzo is an appealing and likable young actor who carries the film easily; he gives the impression that he is thinking deeply and mildly amused.

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.

A gorgeous location, involving characters, and stellar wit add up to one crackerjack comedy.
| Original Score: 3.5/4

Layered with odd ideas, cultural references, snappy dialogue, dreamy visuals and charming characters, all of which add to up a refreshingly unironic look at love, life and the desire to just be.

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.
