Storyline

In Blythe, California, a small town in the remote California desert, Ethan Inglebrink is an eccentric, agoraphobic heroin addict who is obsessed with his garden. This dark comedy follows the last days of Ethan's life as he struggles to find purpose at a time when it might be too late to even matter. After convincing his senior poker buddies that he is diabetic, in order to explain his frequent use of syringes, Ethan shoots up while trying to win poker money to fund his gardening hobby and drug use. Nearing eviction, Ethan gardens furiously in hopes of winning the $10,000 first prize in the "Garden of the Year" contest so he can pay his delinquent rent. Between sugar-munching binges and exchanges with a motley crew of neighbors, Ethan tries to grow the perfect "American cowslip", a beautiful, rare flower that will be the centerpiece of his garden and the floral representation of his life. When his efforts are thwarted by his landlord/high school football coach/next door neighbor, ... Written by Anonymous

2 May 2014 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

a cocktail of clichés, few good actors in bad roles, childish humor and blasphemies,absence of coherent story, a donkey and a Peter Pan complex case. nothing new or convincing. it can be one of comedies about small things or a mixture between American Pie and fake Seinfelt clone if has little measure. but it is only a basket with all in a kind of improvisation.Ronnie Gene Blevis in search of few scenes to make his role authentic. irony is a thin line, the situations are bizarre , the message is inexistent. the salvation - good intentions of makers who search present a case of good guy with a lot of sins. but the indulgence falls in contact with the pink end. conclusion - poor cast !
