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.

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...

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

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.

If the picture secretly hopes to supply viewers with the kind of epiphany its characters seek, it falls short, staying instead on turf tread in many other good-hearted festival films before it. Within that arena though, it holds its own.

Appealing performances by Costanzo and Song, with comic support from Ryan's entrepreneurial parents and Ming's knife-wielding granny, guide us over the rough patches.

The film exists in that familiar Douglas Coupland never never land populated by twentysomethings facing cubicle farms and shoddy romances revealed under quasi-Ikea lamps.

Paul Fox's direction has a deft ease and comic apprehension which serves the material beautifully, as well as the cast.

The blandness of director Paul Fox's execution leaves much to be desired.

[Actors Costanzo] and Song make a sweet screen couple, although their charm is dwarfed by that of Vancouver itself, which is photographed as if it were New York in Woody Allen's Manhattan.
| Original Score: 4/5

[Director] Fox's ensemble, led by Steph Song as the whale-watching cutie, exudes easy, impish charm. Vancouver plays itself, for a change, to a postcard-radiant fare-thee-well.
