Greenfingers

Led by ruggedly handsome Clive Owen, hardened criminals in an alternative prison program become successful flower gardeners and catch the attention of a well-known horticulturalist (snooty Helen Mirren), who encourages them to compete in a prestigious flower show. As in The Full Monty, the humor is predicated on gruff-but-lovable blue-collar types being thrust into “unmanly” situations. But where the other movie earned its laughs with rich characterization and a biting take on economic hardship, this 2000 British comedy is content to trot out predictable stereotypes. Written and directed by Joel Hershman. 91 min.
