A slacker edging into his thirties plots a not quite legal get-rich-quick scheme in this satiric comedy written by celebrated novelist Douglas Coupland. Ryan (Paulo Costanzo) lives and works in Vancouver, which has become overrun by runaway Hollywood film crews and folks looking for an easy buck however they can find it. Ryan's unemployed father grows marijuana in his basement, his brother is involved in a real-estate scam that bilks tycoons from Hong Kong who never see the property they only think they own, and Ryan himself is an office drone at a magazine devoted to chronicling the lives… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A charming disappointment that retains the elements that make the writer's novels so good without ever bending them into cinematic shape."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Coupland and Fox do a nimble job of incorporating seemingly tangential points that are deceptively relevant to the larger issues."
‑ Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times
"Coupland would need the luxury of prose to vindicate this material"
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"Ryan's journey to self-discovery isn't entirely credible, but Costanzo's acting chops are good enough to make you care about him despite any shortcomings in the script"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"It's more clever than smart, but Paul Fox directs with the same easygoing attitude of its slacker hero..."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"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."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"There's nothing really wrong about Everything's Gone Green, but there's nothing terribly vital about it either."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Slacker comedy mixes marijuana and satire."
‑ Renee Schonfeld, Common Sense Media
"Call it "Garden Province.""
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Minor pleasures don't come close to compensating for a bloodless film that aims for wry but leaves you merely asking 'why?'"
‑ Marc Mohan, Oregonian
"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."
‑ Ted Fry, Seattle Times
"Everything's Gone Green is the second feature directed by Paul Fox, who maintains an energetic, lighthearted tone throughout the film, even when the story loses focus at its not-quite-satisfying ending."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"Gives the audience some fine eye candy, but Douglas Coupland's first foray into the realm of writing for the screen offers little else to recommend it."
‑ Dan Jardine, Apollo Guide
"Far more pleasant than having your teeth cleaned but less memorable, Everything's Gone Green is a nice diversion that will get you thinking - about booking a flight to British Columbia."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Everything's Gone Green, the first feature script from noted Canadian author Douglas Coupland, is the ultimate love letter to his native, beloved Vancouver."
‑ Jane Stevenson, Jam! Movies
