The judge sentences Dr. Stone to community service as a doctor because he's "a licensed physician." However, since medical licensing is by state, it is highly unlikely Stone would just happen to be licensed in South Carolina. See more »
I have to laugh at all the comments on this board which say this movie's plot or the characters are not "plausible".
I live near the town this movie was shot in, (I was an extra for one day, and a "stand in" for two days on this film. It was neat!) and believe me, the characters are not only believable, you can meet versions of them in small towns all through the south.
There is a big difference between city and deep country life. Maybe people in very urban areas and countries tend to forget that. Quite honestly, I know several people down here in the boonies who make the folk of "Grady" look downright sophisticated.
That criticism shot down, I just have to say it's a really sweet film. It has a lot of atmosphere and some good character development, even in the minor roles. It portrays small, small town America pretty accurately and with a great deal of charm.
