Storyline

A small-town, country doctor has been a widow for two years but is still in love with her dead husband, Michael. Despite the best efforts of her father in law to marry her off to the local eligible bachelors, she still remains so. The week-long county fair is approaching and her father in law traps her into an unfair deal involving the feeding of her bull and her attendance at the fair with a suitable escort. She decides to call his bluff by hiring a male escort to attend the fair as her lover. However, things don't go quite according to plan as he smells a rat and investigates the new boyfriend and even worse the escort starts to fall in love with her! Things come to a head at the Bison Hall dance, the highlight of the fair, when the girlfriend of the escort arrives in town and the escort forces her into making a choice between him and her dead husband Michael!

Clumsy and cute
30 August 2002 | by (Durham, NH) – See all my reviews

Relationships as depicted in cinema are so "perfect". Well, reality is different, very different. The plot of this movie forces us to stretch our imagination. But stretch it we do, as we watch the characters "bang up" against each other. The unlikely relationship strokes our curiosity and keeps us tuned in. This is not a classic. But it is a very enjoyable low budget Romance-Comedy that is very typical of LMN. I have seen it three times and still enjoy it. That it telling.
