5.0 out of 5 stars
Absolutely fantastic!, 25 Feb. 2002
This film is a brilliant British comedy which will appeal to anyone simply because of its heartwarming storyline and wonderful cast, made up of both industry legends (notably Brenda Blethyn and an excellently cast Leslie Phillips of "ding dong" fame), and relative newcomers. Clunes is also great as the village doctor, but I wish his part was a little bigger.
Although predominantly based on a plot of marijuana cultivation and consumption (anyone who smokes/has smoked pot will find it particularly enjoyable!), this film is great because it not only shows the positive/negative aspects of cultivation, but also encompasses so many other themes - friendship, love, community spirit, and of course getting stoned and having a great time. A must-see, if not a must-buy!
