  • Affectionate and heartwarming it will seem to those who enjoy this sort of thing; painfully slow and dramatically inert might be the criticism of doubters.

    June 15, 2007 | Rating: 2/5
  • One could wish that this parable of difference and tolerance gladdened the heart, but its effortful comedy has quite the opposite effect. It's just weedy.

  • It's a shame for John Pilger that The War on Democracy, his documentary about how Venezuelan leader Hugo Chvez is a symbol of the growth of people power in Latin America, is being released at a time when Chvez has shut down TV companies that oppose him.

  • Well-intentioned, and well-cast, this British movie is nonetheless desperately underpowered.

  • The movie seems at times so impressed by its own allegory that it lessens the human drama running beneath it.

  • Hence, while it works as an antidote to the gritty realism of recent British films, Grow Your Own's twee optimism is sometimes a little too much to digest.

  • It's what could be termed a gentle comedy, this story about immigrants trying to blend into the fabric of rural British society; a routinely pleasant small comedy that explores Britain's immigration issues and relevant enough to touch a nerve anywhere

  • This derivative drama might have worked quite well as a four-part mini Sunday night series for the BBC. As a film, however, it fails on almost every count.

Audience Reviews for Grow Your Own

  • Jan 09, 2008
    Low key gem which follows in the proud tradition of british bittersweet comedies. Issues are woven amongst the gags by a range of well known british thesps who mix wonderfully with relative unknowns. Unheralded but well worth seeking out.

    grumpy brits, scheme when there alotment has to lose a plot, for a phone mast, and typically its foreigners who are target, luckely its not all that this film is about, as we see a slice of british life, where not everyone is like the guy who wants them out, so intereting stories going on and humour typically english,
