Storyline

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.

Quotes

[first lines]
Murray French: When I was a boy, Tickle Head was a proud fishing harbor. Back then, people from Tickle Head were strong, dignified, brave. Their days were filled with purpose. By no means was this life for the faint of heart, for the weak, the lazy. As I look back now, I can truly say life was a thing of beauty.

Love, Love Loved It
17 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I am not usually a fan of these types of movies, but my friends convinced me to see it and I am so very glad I did. It was funny and silly and very well acted. I must say the "Dr" was not hard on the eyes either.

The setting of Tickle Head was beautiful and reflects on the times in Newfoundland.

My husband saw the French version of the film years ago, but really enjoyed this version as well.

I would totally recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good laugh. There people of all ages teens to seniors in the theatre and we all laughed at the same times.
