This effervescent comedy leaves a sweet aftertaste.
15 February 2001 | by huntleyhaverstockSee all my reviews

This warm-hearted film combines physical and verbal comedy into a fine blend which is pleasing to the palate. Although the fish-out-of-water plot may at first seem to be old wine in a new wine skin, the uniqueness of the central characters keeps the bouquet fresh and full bodied. The lightness of the direction is matched perfectly with the richness of the main character, Brother George. Squeeze A Flower promises to leave a warm, sweet aftertaste, so sit back, relax and enjoy this excellent vintage.
