Critic Reviews for Growing Op
Growing Op strains hard to deliver edgy humour with a dollop of heart but is too stilted and derivative to carry it off.
Audience Reviews for Growing Op
I've always enjoyed coming-of-age stories, and this fits the bill - although the family unit in this movie is more unusual than most. They develop marijuana. So how does a home school teenager fit in when he falls in love with the girl-next-door?
I went into this movie not expecting much but I came out very satisfied. It's not really a stoner movie like Dazed & Confused or Harold & Kumar but I think stoners will definitively love it. It's about this kid with parents who are very anti-establishment and leftist. They're family business is selling pot. The film follows their son, who was home-schooled all his life, trying to find his way in public high school to chase a girl he loves. Also, the ending is quite interesting. I would have been happy with the film half way through but the last 25 minutes made it even better. Very good for a low-budget film. Fap Rating: 3.5/10 Overall: 8.8/10
Growing Op strains hard to deliver edgy humour with a dollop of heart but is too stilted and derivative to carry it off. Bad writing and a nonsensical twist at the end all make for a poor effort.
