    On balance, though, Turning Green is more fresh than stale. Gallery holds his own impressively with the better-known supporting players, and the script -- a Project Greenlight runner-up -- is solidly constructed.
  2. An amusing Irish coming-of-age comedy.
  3. An odd little comedy drama set in Ireland that boasts more onscreen talent than it deserves.
  4. Ends up stranded in the wilderness between comedy and rushed, halfhearted melodrama.
  5. Both Project Greenlight runners-up, directors Michael Aimette and John G. Hofmann get the teen angst and Gaelic aesthetic right; too bad their third-act thuggery isn’t just routine, but ridiculous.

    Turning Green is, if nothing else, the world’s loneliest teen sex comedy.
