      steve d Personally I didn't find any of the characters or the story remotely interesting. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member You're kidding me, right? This thing gets a 60-plus? It's a piece of s**t! It doesn't follow what it promises; it uses hackneyed metaphors and really, really farfetched cultural losses in translation; and then tries to justify itself as some holistic remedy. It's crap. It's self-indulgent and leads to nowhere, and we're left pondering at the end of the film whether the main actor just pulled off an awesome con to his viewers, as he...indescribably giggles in the passenger seat. Frankly, this movie should have been left in the trunk. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member A charming indie film that meanders its way casually through the story. Nobody is in a rush here! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member it's weird to see vancouver as vancouver...subtle to the point of being a little slow, but the whole idea of scamming the bc lotto was hilarious. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member loved the soundtrack and the Vancouver film making backdrop but at the end the movie didn't quite do it for me, probably coz of the sappy acting at times...but i'd pro'lly watch it again only for amy, Jason collette and BSS playin at the back since i'm million miles aways from Toronto right now :( Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Get rich quick schemes always fail.This movie is a good take on modern life middle class people.It's very watchable, there's nothing wrong with it but there's nothing really vital about this movie.

      Ty Burr Boston Globe A charming disappointment that retains the elements that make the writer's novels so good without ever bending them into cinematic shape. Rated: 2/4 Jul 6, 2007 Full Review Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune 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. Rated: 3/4 May 17, 2007 Full Review Ted Fry Seattle Times 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. Rated: 2.5/4 May 4, 2007 Full Review Dorothy Woodend The Tyee (British Columbia) "Pretty but shallow" is often a complaint about Vancouver, and Everything's Gone Green suffers from the same problem. Aug 23, 2017 Full Review Bill Chambers Film Freak Central Coupland would need the luxury of prose to vindicate this material Rated: 1/4 Jan 17, 2010 Full Review Renee Schonfeld Common Sense Media Slacker comedy mixes marijuana and satire.
