This clever comedy gets two green thumbs up! The New Leaf Greenhouse is facing foreclosure, but owner Filmore Potts and his employees are busy with other matters from hosting a garden party for the uppity Butterfly Club to dealing with an explosive experiment concocted by Nate, the resident scientist. To make the day even more volatile, Ivy has concocted a love potion to win over Pete, who barely notices her. Wouldnt you know? The pitcher containing the secret love tonic looks just like Nates new plant-growth formula as well as the Butterfly Clubs lemonade, resulting in a jumble of unrequited love triangles, unnatural vegetation and one disastrous garden party! Ivy is green with envy when Pete instantly falls for Polly, the wallflower who only talks to the plants, while the nerdy Nate drank the wrong lemonade and now wont let Ivy be. In the midst of the chaos, Archie a talking flower played by a puppeteer is "born." Archie and Polly become fast friends, and Archie gets a chance to teach her how to open up and "blossom" to help her express her feelings for Nate. Theres an unexpected twist waiting behind every corner in this unique comedy that adds depth to its slapstick humor with a touch of genuine pathos, some witty wordplay and a lot of heart.|
