A prison inmate with a green thumb goes on to compete in a national gardening competition.
Likeable, but unremarkable comedy drama.
Halliwell (no star): "Corny comedy of an isolated group of macho men gaining self-respect in an unexpected way; it is loosely based on a true story but has little connection with reality."
Maltin**1/2: "Minor but diverting film...A bit too pat, but pleasant."

The story of a team of female African-American mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the U.S. space program.
Well-meant, likeable vindication of the female African-American's participation in NASA is professionally staged with an excellent cast, but is disappointing in its bending the singular success stories into white savior tales.
