Growing Op strains hard to deliver edgy humour with a dollop of heart but is too stilted and derivative to carry it off.
A typically quirky Canadian comedy...
Growing Op has bad writing -- predictable and one-dimensional -- but after about 90 minutes, the story starts taking surprise turns that don't make a lot of sense.
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
[28th Atlantic Film Festival]
An intriguing twist on the pothead genre - Quinn (Steven Yaffee) is a sober, caring, inquisitive child who longs for a normal, suburban existence. The catch, is that his family runs a marijuana operation in their household.
This is a very fresh take on the traditional coming-of-age story. The film does eventually take a twist, but the end result is still an incredibly high quality tale about family and independence. There are multiple story threads and moral occurring simultaneously; which are all wrapped up nicely by the end. I simply loved the last 10 minutes! I cannot say enough nice things about the script.
I must mention Wallace Langham's performance as the anti-establishment father to Quinn, which was one of the most entertaining and likable aspects of the film.
