The small harbor of Tickle Cove is in dire need of a doctor so that the town can land a contract to secure a factory which will save the town from financial ruin. Village resident Murray French (Gleeson) leads the search, and when he finds Dr. Paul Lewis (Kitsch) he employs - along with the whole town - tactics to seduce the doctor to stay permanently.

Great film - classic Canadian style
21 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Loved this film when seeing a preview tonight. Hemril (?) this was made in Canada not Hollywood and is yet another example of whimsical, funny, character based storyline, without a special effect in sight.

The Canadian film industry has wonderful strengths which are sadly always overshadowed by our brasher cousins south of the border.

Seems a bit harsh only allowing English text - as this is based on a french story (and I am not a French speaker).

Also strange to be forced to write 10 lines - whatever happened to brevity and concise opinion in writing. Really do I have to fill your space with gibberish (and risk the review not being published)?
