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.

Those quirky atmospherics aren't enough to sustain a largely plotless film.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

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

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

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

It's a bit of a shaky first screenwriting effort for Coupland, but not without its charms.

Everything's Gone Green just barely hangs there in that low-watt Canadian film world deadpan.

Coupland would need the luxury of prose to vindicate this material

In trying to mock the yuppie subculture by poking fun at people who become obsessed with grass grow-ops and pyramid schemes, Fox shoehorns Coupland's generalizations into a lame character comedy.

[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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Slacker comedy mixes marijuana and satire.

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.

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

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

[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.
| Original Score: 3/4

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
