As synthetic as a rubber rose.
October 9, 2001
Can be cute, and even heartwarming at times. But all too often, it's nearly insufferable.

It's just too bad the intended charm is applied with a shovel instead of a trowel. Romantic comedy is a delicate flower that can be smothered by too much fertilizer.
September 13, 2001
Pleasant, mildly uplifting entertainment.

Greenfingers is by no means a poor film, mainly frustratingly pleasant, with any depth that could be applied to the redemption of a murderer cast aside to well-worn and all too familiar genre staples.
August 30, 2001
Too contrived for its own good and it feels as artificial as a bouquet of plastic pansies.
August 24, 2001
Succeeds in capturing the movement of a soul from hopelessness to humanity.
August 17, 2001
A small enchantment of a movie, distinctive for both its freshness and finesse.
August 17, 2001
Yet another in the seemingly unending string of English feel-good frolics.
August 10, 2001
Greenfingers is so darn cute it's like a Meg Ryan movie with accents.
August 10, 2001
Greenfingers plants the seeds of comedy that grow into a mild feel-good flick, but it won't reap much viewer satisfaction.

If the bluebells, roses and violets on prominent display come from the same source as writer/director Joel Hershman's screenplay, then they won't require mulch or water, because they're plastic.
August 8, 2001
For those who appreciate low-key British comedies, Greenfingers is a passable entry -- a somewhat pleasant diversion, but nothing more.
August 3, 2001
It is, to be fair, a good idea for a movie: Green thumbs on the Green Mile.
August 3, 2001
Big muscular guys pruning roses is funny and charming.
August 3, 2001
This dawdling tale of hearts and flowers blossoming in a prison yard fairly oozes the sugary goop.
August 3, 2001
Each time you think the genre that brought us Waking Ned Devine, Saving Grace and Billy Elliot, has run its course, along comes another one.
August 3, 2001
Amusing enough to watch and passes the time, but it's the kind of movie you're content to wait for on your friendly indie cable channel.
August 2, 2001
A dull, treacly, and predictable entry in the Feel-Good Cross-Cultural U.K. Comedy sweepstakes.
August 2, 2001
Simply reheats a formula that relies on ordinary blokes who triumph.
