Editorial Reviews

Ethan (Ronnie Gene Blevins), a tightly-wound slacker, faces eviction unless he can win the cash prize in the local Garden of the Year contest. Challenged by his bizarre neighbors, Ethan hilariously tries to grow the perfect “American Cowslip,” a rare flower that will smoke the competition. Starring Diane Ladd, Rip Torn, Cloris Leachman, Bruce Dern and Hanna Hall with Val Kilmer and Peter Falk.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Laughed, I Cried, I Peed a Little. September 9, 2010
There are three reasons you should watch this movie:

1) Ronnie Blevins (the lead) is an amazing actor.
He really lets loose in this film and it's fun to watch.

2) The story reminds me that beauty comes in many different forms.

3) Rip Torn is out of his mind. His character is kinda kooky too.

4.0 out of 5 stars unexpected good stuff April 9, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I friend of mine told me about this film - said it was akin to Tim Burton/Terry Gilliam. Honestly, I didn't know what to expect.

The opening sequence hooked me. And the film carried me along for the duration. Really good stuff. I was very surprised - especially at the fact I had never heard of the film before.

Read what you want about the plot, actors, etc., this one's a keeper.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Mess February 13, 2014
By Jimmy R
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It started out with promise, but it quickly goes way downhill and does a splat into the gutter, and the laughs become few and far between. The film is cast with mostly has been stars and the script is weak. Watching the main character shoot up with heroin and never change his clothes in 110 degree heat isn't a recipe for hilarity...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great almost unknown movie! October 21, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great little almost unknown movie with an all-star cast! Ronnie Blevins is on his way to being a force to be reckoned with in the motion picture business!
