If there was an honest description advertising this movie, NO ONE WOULD WATCH IT!
Verified purchase
First of all it's a movie called "Greener Mountains" about Vermont, but filmed in what looks like the dead brown hills of California. It says it's a "coming of age" story, but everyone in the movie is well past 25 years old, even though they are supposedly playing 18 year olds.
Boring boring boring, from what I saw the acting was ok but the story was terrible. Very predicatable, and reminiscent of '80s movies with weak plots that substituted teasers to attract viewers.
If I bought a fifth of whiskey to watch the movie, I'd finish the bottle before the movie. I'm not sure the whiskey would help the movie much though, because the poor character development and lack of excitement would probably cause me to create a new drinking game. By the way I hate whiskey. You're better off watching a rerun of anything than this movie

Decent Movie--Wholesome; Horribly Inaccurate/Incomplete Description

Another underdog, good-guy-wins movie. Satisfying ending. Probably won't watch it again, but I wouldn't hesitate to suggest someone watch it.

But WHAT'S with the description on the Amazon Video? "Greener Mountains is a family friendly, coming-of-age story about finding your place in the world." REALLY?

Here's the real description of what you'll see (from the movie description): "Greener Mountains is the coming of age story of JP Barton, an adopted son raised on a throwback Vermont family resort. Since being found as an infant by the resort's elderly owner, JP has essentially never left the grounds. But with the arrival of a beautiful, free-spirited New York artist his sheltered life is suddenly turned upside down."

And without adding too many spoilers, meet JP who thinks he's not good enough for this artist so creates a fictitious biography to impress her; of course he is discovered, artist leaves in a huff, and he's a basket case because he has lost his one true love and soulmate. Then enter the scheming and conniving grandson who intends by fair means or foul to gain access to his grandmother's estate and write this adopted son out of the inheritance.

Of course, you know it all comes out exactly right at the end. The hick-from-the-sticks good guy comes out on top, and the savvy and crafty city guy comes out with nothing.

Now, you can at least make an intelligent decision as to whether or not to watch the movie.

a great Christmas show
Verified purchase
This movie is; a great Christmas show. Like the film guide states, it shows how multiple lives can pull together and effect each other for the better. The plot was good, the ending was great. I would see it again with someone I love.

what we need for a satisfying life may be right infront of us.

Great coming of age movie. Shows what can be more important in life and truth is the best course to follow. The protagonist is not perfect but comes to find out what is most important for him and his family around him. The photography is great and the audience wonders why he did not see the wealth that he had. The end is very satisfying like the haven that the residents live in.

I loved Greener Mountains. What a wonderful love story. Finding your soul mate, but also rediscovering the love of family and friends.
